We are celebrating the fact that our community pharmacists have been officially recognized by select Washington State insurance plans as providers of clinical services.
Studies and practice-based experience have shown that when pharmacists are involved as members of the health care team, patient outcomes improve, patients report higher rates of satisfaction and overall health care costs are reduced.
Without the proper provider status recognition and payment models in place, patients and health care providers are often blocked from accessing the benefits achievable through pharmacists’ services.
We are excited that our team represents the first community Pharmacists in the nation to be credentialed with commercial payers.
Kelley-Ross CEO, Ryan Oftebro, stated, “This is a huge step in the right direction for patients. Our profession is finally being recognized for the high-quality, cost-saving healthcare solutions available from a community pharmacist”.
