COST CONTAINMENT

We take the time to listen to your specific needs, helping you to manage your financial and regulatory challenges while providing personal service that is catered to your staff and facility with a focus on resident care.

FORMULARY MANAGEMENT

Through our Formulary Management program, we review medication orders and when appropriate, we automatically interchange to a lower cost and/or more clinically appropriate drug in the same therapeutic class. Unlike simply changing from brand name to generic, we work hand in hand with the prescriber to focus on multiple benefits, including not only cost and clinical efficiency but also administration and safety.

COVERED ALTERNATIVE MEDICATIONS

Insurance companies often have their own list of preferred medications and may also have additional rules in place that must be met before they will cover certain medications. In these cases, we work with the insurance company to determine covered alternatives to recommend to the prescriber.

PRIOR AUTHORIZATIONS

Sometimes an insurance company may require specific information before they will approve reimbursement of a medication. This is known as a Prior Authorization (PA).  We work to provide the insurance company with the proper paperwork in a timely manner allowing you to spend less time managing paperwork and more time caring for your patients.

DEDICATED CLINICAL TEAM

Our dedicated clinical team is comprised of Consultant Pharmacists that enhance the quality of care for your residents, Nurse Consultants that help prepare your team with survey preparation and on-site support for annual survey, and Customer Care Representatives that serve as your main point of contact for all facility needs.

TESTIMONIALS

Wonderful Support

I wanted to say “thank you” for the wonderful support given to Crestview by the Polaris team during this time of transition. I would especially like to mention Melissa, Tim and Felicia for their guidance, instruction, and availability. They take the time to check on us regularly and are always responsive in a timely manner when I reach out via phone or email.

Director of Nursing - Crestview Health & Rehab

A Leader in Pharmacy Services

“Polaris Pharmacy has been a leader in Pharmacy Services for my nursing centers.  They provide great support and timely replies to requests for medication orders.  The automated system is easy to use.  It generates helpful reports for DON’s and Administrators to review provider practices, medication costs, GDR’s and the like.  The assigned Pharmacist is great to work with and the support staff are very professional.  I would highly recommend this company for Pharmaceutical support.”

Karen Wilhelm

Regional Director Clinical Services - Accordius Health

Excellent Customer Service

Polaris provides excellent customer service!  Many of the staff help us with billing questions, communication questions, etc.  Recently we added reports to help us manage our operation and Polaris provided invaluable education to know what to do with the reports and how to expedite our work.  I am very excited to get started with PolarisDirect and with PolarisPrescribe for our providers.  Their technology is impressive and I think this kind of personal attention is what makes Polaris a great partner.  Thank you for all you do!

Polaris has been a true partner with our facility! They have helped us to focus on our processes and are constantly finding ways to improve our pharmacy services each day.  We are lucky to have such a committed partnership with Polaris as our pharmacy provider.  Polaris’ customer service is second to none.  We are working together during this very difficult time to make our residents, our customers, happy with their overall care.  We could not accomplish that without Polaris.  Thank you so much for what you do every day for our residents!
