Optime Care Launches New, First-in-Class Co-Pay Assistance Program, Uses Block-Chain Technology to Address Challenges of Drugmaker Partners

EARTH CITY, Mo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Optime Care, a nationally recognized specialty pharmacy, dispensing and patient management organization maximizing therapeutic opportunities for the treatment of orphan and rare diseases, announces the launch of Copay AdvisorSM, an innovative and best-in-class co-payment assistance program to proactively address the challenges and unmet needs of its drugmaker partners. Using proprietary blockchain technology as its backbone, Copay AdvisorSM minimizes potentially negative exposure with co-pay and maximization programs for pharmaceutical manufacturers.

“This program comes at an ideal time, and we are excited to address the growing and often unaddressed market needs to help manufacturers limit their potential exposure from copay accumulation and maximization programs,” says Tiffany. Ellen Burt, President. and Chief Operating Officer, Optime Care. “This is another service we can offer to new partners, as well as companies with whom we have deep, long-standing relationships. Our goal is to continuously support our partners with these types of programs and services that streamline access to branded therapies and improve patient outcomes.

She points out that health equity has become a top concern for millions of Americans who rely on co-pay assistance to pay for their prescribed medications.

“Optime Care is committed to serving rare patient populations who rely on co-payment assistance to pay for much-needed specialty medications,” Burt continues. “In an ever-changing healthcare environment, we are committed to helping drugmakers reach these patients through innovative programs.”

A key differentiator from current programs, Copay AdvisorSM uses blockchain technology, an emerging technology applied in healthcare systems to store and exchange patient data through hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, pharmacies and doctors. This digital registry facilitates the accumulation, tracking and reporting of data needed to meet the new CMS 2023 health equity guidelines.

Burt concludes, “This program was created or developed in response to growing criticism from health insurers of typical co-pay assistance programs. We offer an effective alternative to existing co-pay programs, which are censored with complaints that they drive up costs while steering patients to more expensive brands. Plus, we can now help drugmakers make these programs a win-win for all stakeholders. »
