Automated HealthCare Solutions Joins the First Script Extended Pharmacy Network
First Script Workers Comp PBM - part of the Coventry Workers Comp division at Aetna -
and Automated HealthCare Solutions (AHCS) are pleased to announce that they are teaming
up to create a higher standard of medication dispensing while limiting the increasing
costs associated with pharmacy care for workers’ compensation claims.
First Script offers a suite of client solutions designed to drive industry-leading clinical outcomes
and manage costs throughout an injured worker’s recovery and return to productive function.
First Script’s experienced staff works with clients to design programs that meet the cost
containment and medical management needs of each organization. AHCS is a recognized national
leader in providing physicians with the technological tools to manage the detailed process of
dispensing medication to their patients.
“At First Script, we are committed to managing the first script and every script that an
injured worker receives in the course of their recovery from a work comp injury.
Partnering with the forward-thinking people at AHCS allows us to expand our capacity
to manage more prescriptions fills for those injured workers in the same clinically
responsible and cost-sensitive manner we manage all other prescriptions.” said Alan Madison,
Vice President of First Script Operations. “By combining AHCS’ industry-leading technology
solutions for dispensing workers’ comp physicians, and First Script’s established
clinical resources, we are raising the bar for providing care to injured workers.
Establishing a direct relationship with AHCS ensures that the prescriptions dispensed by
AHCS contracted providers are in compliance with client and injury-specific drug lists and
that payments are made at the contract rates.”
Added AHCS CEO David Bowen: “We are proud to partner with First Script to provide the best
possible path to well-being for injured workers. First Script is an unquestioned
leader in caring for workers’ compensation patients, and this relationship will
ensure that countless injured workers will be able to benefit from our companies’
combined expertise and the latest technological advances.”
