Transplant

Prior to a transplant, many screenings and test must be done in order to find a potential match.

Transplantation is the removal of living, functioning cells, tissues, or organs from the body and then their transfer back into the same body or into a different body.

Once the transplant is complete, your medical team will closely monitor you and come up with a strategy to prevent transplant rejection.

More than 113,000 people need a lifesaving organ transplant and out of those, 74,000 people are active waiting list candidates. Every 10 minutes, another person is added to the waiting list and 20 people each day die while waiting for a transplant. It is important for those who get a transplant get the best care possible so organ rejection is minimal.

Prior Authorization Support

Quite often, prescription insurance plans require your doctor to obtain a prior authorization for speciality medications. Basically, this means that the medication to treat your condition must be pre-approved before you can receive it. 

The good news is that Premier Pharmacy’s RAPIDx Prior Authorization Program works tirelessly with your doctor to identify and gather the necessary information. In doing so, we free up some time for your doctor and care team so that they can focus on giving you the care and attention you need. 

Financial Assistance Support

Specialty medication therapy can be costly even with insurance coverage. Our experienced and knowledgeable team specialists help patients gain access to funding to help make medication costs more affordable. Some available resources include: 

  • Government funded programs

  • Disease specific foundations

  • Manufacturer assistance programs

  • Co-payment cards

For uninsured patients we assist with enrollment in manufacturer sponsored free drug programs when available.
