A Deep Dive on CMS’ MSA Review Process
Based upon issues identified prior to or during the completion of the MSA by a Doctor of Pharmacy, we propose alternatives to high cost Medicare-covered medications, and clarify the drug regimen to produce a medically sound and supported MSA. The goal of the program is to impact medication therapy and mitigate MSA drug costs through sending the treating provider(s) a letter with proposals and clinical rationale.
RxAnalysis is a comprehensive review by a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) of the medications prescribed for the injured worker. Our PharmDs identify safe, therapeutically appropriate alternatives that may be less costly than the current medications being prescribed. Through our additional Physician Outreach Service, the PharmD can collaborate with the treating provider(s) regarding the RxAnalysis results. (see service details below)
ExamWorks Clinical Solutions’ RxAnalysis utilizes medical records and payment histories to identify pharmaceutical areas of potential concern. Our RxAnalysis team is composed of PharmD professionals who are passionate about reducing medication costs, in addition to improving patient functionality through outreach to the treating provider.
Our Physician Outreach service is performed in conjunction with our RxAnalysis services. Clients receive recommendations from an ExamWorks Clinical Solutions PharmD after contact is made with the physician or provider to discuss recommendations. The PharmD provides documentation outlining:
- Recommended pharmacy changes
- Results of the conversation with the treating provider
- Savings when the physician agrees to recommended changes
Signed confirmation of the conversation is requested from the provider following the Outreach. Additional services can be provided to monitor the file and ensure the agreed-upon changes have been implemented.
ExamWorks Clinical Solutions’ Claims Resolution is a comprehensive performance solution designed to bring our client’s cases to a successful conclusion. Our multidisciplinary team of experts can address client needs from obtaining missing documentation to mitigating areas of exposure throughout the life of a claim.
- Continuous follow-up for and review of medical records to confirm treatment and medication changes have been implemented and sustained.
