The work associated with helping patients access the biologic therapy their health care provider has prescribed is crucial to each patient’s psoriasis journey.

Medical professionals who perform the access and fulfillment related work play an integral role within the specialty provider’s office to help those with psoriasis access specialty prescriptions from their health plans.

By working collaboratively with the patient, prescribing specialist, specialty pharmacy, manufacturer and insurance company, you are critical in communicating with patients throughout the authorization process, obtaining up-to-date insurance information, completing forms and handling prior authorization, step therapy and denials.

To assist you and your patients in getting the appropriate care to treat their moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, this hub contains resources and best practices, while also highlighting the critical role of these experienced medical professionals.

Helping patients access biologic therapeutic options to treat psoriasis is a critical task. That’s why we’ve provided resources, reviewed by our expert panel, to help your patients get appropriate care and achieve optimal health outcomes.
