If your doctor has prescribed an oral chemotherapy regimen, you have the option of having your prescription filled at one of our Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers locations. Getting started is as easy as providing us with your prescription benefit card; and we’ll take care of the rest.
We are able to process prescription claims with most prescription benefits providers, including Medicare B and Part D. In addition to convenience our in-office dispensing service may also be a more cost-effective option than retail or specialty pharmacies. Retail/specialty pharmacies often require immediate payment and sometimes are not able to verify all coverage options (e.g., Medicare, supplemental plans, copayment assistance programs) before dispensing. We are able to verify coverage, as well as investigate alternative co-payment assistance resources, prior to dispensing. It’s possible to reduce your out-of-pocket expense by using our program.
Receiving your oral chemotherapy at the point of care also allows our nurses and pharmacy team members to provide you with on-site education and answer any questions you might have.
Our pharmacists understand the importance of getting you started on your treatment right away. They will fill your prescription and overnight it back to your clinic to coincide with the “chemo teach” your nurses will do to explain your treatment plan and answer any questions. Refills may be coordinated with your next schedule visit to the clinic, or may be sent directly to your home.
