Health Coach Saves a Patient $438

“I just saved a patient $438,” Misty Stallard, RN Health Coach shared with excitement!

“I made a follow-up call to a patient,” said Stallard. “While on the call, she mentioned that she did not receive her prescription after she was discharged from the hospital. I called the pharmacy and was informed her medication needed a pre-authorization and was going to cost $438 to fill.  I called the MA in her physician’s office to explain and see if there might be a less expensive option. They were able to prescribe an alternative medication that was considerably less. Needless to say, when I called the patient to share, she was very happy!”
