Specialty Pharmacy Provider
Specialty Pharmacy Provider (SPP) Channel Management
Specialty pharmacy provider (SPP) channel management involves payer programs that facilitate acquisition of specialty drugs and provide other value-added services. Payers historically contracted SPPs for their expert handling of specialty drugs and for improved drug costs in return for volume. Increasingly, payers look to SPPs to ensure seamless delivery of care across the spectrum of care.
While SPPs’ core business is distributing specialty drugs, most SPPs also provide additional services to a variety of customers, including medication adherence, care coordination, patient education, utilization management, and reimbursement support.
