Under the Gun: Mandated Mail-Order Pharmacies
By: Brandon M. Macsata, CEO, ADAP Advocacy Association
At the heart of any successful disease management is informed consumer choice;
without it, access to timely and appropriate health care services, and adherence
to treatment options will likely suffer. HIV/AIDS disease management is certainly
no exception. People living with HIV/AIDS must play a central role in determining
their care and treatment options, which may -- or may not -- include the
use of mail order pharmacy programs.
Mail-order pharmacy programs can serve an important resource for some people
living with HIV/AIDS, including prescriptions delivered under the AIDS Drug
Assistance Programs (ADAPs). Mandating such programs, as often is the case
with some ADAPs and insurance carriers, can present numerous obstacles. Many
patients and their advocates view these services as counterproductive, too.
