Overview of Prescription Drug Management Plan
Samaritan Health Plans provides all members with medication review services upon request. Members can meet with the SHPO Clinical Pharmacist via an appointment at our Avery Square offices or by phone or email. The purpose of this service is to answer member questions about medications, less costly alternatives and other pharmaceutical issues.
Samaritan Health Plans maintains a Committee composed of physicians and pharmacists whose purpose is to review evidenced based, scientific evidence and decide which medications should be added or deleted from our formularies. The Committee meets every other month or as needed to fulfill this important function.
