All City Pharmacy, which is located in Las Vegas, Nevada, minimizes the frustration associated with getting authorization for limited distribution drugs. When specialty pharmaceuticals are needed, patients often need to acquire prior authorization to obtain them. In fact, prior authorizations have become commonplace in a world where manufacturers limit access to certain prescriptions as a normal part of doing business.
Why Are Prior Authorizations Needed?
When specialty drugs are required to treat a patient with a serious medical condition, the cost of the medication can be exorbitant. The higher expense leads to the need for prior authorizations. In order to curtail unnecessary expense, insurance providers have turned to prior authorizations to ensure the additional cost is merited. This practice makes it possible for insurance companies to keep an eye on the prescribing process without overstepping its boundaries.

Prior Authorization and the Cost of Specialty Drugs
On occasion, one of our patients is struggling to meet the high cost of treating certain medical conditions with expensive drugs. When this happens, we work hard to see if we can find a financial assistance program to enroll them in so they can obtain their medications without creating an undue burden on their finances. Two of our options include non-profit organizations as well as drug manufacturers themselves. In most instances, we continue to request prior authorization while looking for financial assistance.
