Partial Fill Program - Effective October 1, 2015

8/31/2015 11:00:21 AM

We are starting a new ‘Partial Fill’ program to help patients who are prescribed drugs used to treat cancer find the drug that will work best for them. (Please refer to the formulary for a full list of medications that are part of this program.)

Patients on these types of drug therapies often experience negative side effects from their medication. Because of these side effects, they sometimes stop taking their medicine. We hope that this program will reduce cost and wasted drugs.

With this program, the first fill for all patients will be limited. This will help us evaluate how the patient handles side effects.

When the partial fill ends, a Care Team member will contact the patient.  They will discuss any negative side effects and answer questions and concerns.  If the trial period is a success, the member will continue taking the drug. All future fills will be for the full amount.
