Medication Access for Uninsured Patients

Cardinal Health

Cardinal Health, Inc introduces its eRecovery Onsite service, which enables hospitals to completely outsource the process of enrolling uninsured patients in manufactur- ers’ patient assistance programs at no up- front cost to the hospital. Many pharmaceuti- cal manufacturers offer assistance programs that provide patients who meet specific requirements with access to free or dis- counted medications. Taking advantage of these programs allows hospitals to reduce their overall drug spend by not having to absorb the cost of those patients’ medica- tions. Each pharmaceutical manufacturer has different program qualifications and application processes, which can make en- rolling patients a difficult and time-consum- ing process for hospitals. Hospitals that use the eRecovery Onsite service also are able to reduce uninsured patient re-admission rates, as participating patients are better able to adhere to medication guidelines prescribed by their physicians.
