What are the laws regarding physician dispensing?

With proper credentialing and compliance with state-by-state requirements, physician dispensing is legal in most states.

Is there special licensing required to dispense?

In addition to a DEA and State Medical license some states require a physician to obtain a Dispensing Practitioner credential from the state regulatory board. AbbyJenn will assist in completing all the necessary dispensing licensing, and credentialing documents required for you to dispense.

Can I process a patient’s medication using their prescription insurance?

Yes, our software has the ability to adjudicate cash and third party claims. AbbyJenn holds contracts with hundreds of third parties, making the dispensing process fast and simple!

How do I determine what to charge my patients for their prescription?

If the patient has a prescription card it is recommended that you collect their normal co-payment. If they are a cash patient your practice will have the flexibility to charge patients based on the cost of the medications and the current market. AbbyJenn will work with your practice to determine how to maximize your revenue.

How will I receive claim reimbursements from the third parties?

In order to simplify payer remittance, AbbyJenn works with a payment management center that eliminates paper remittances and checks, making the reimbursement process easy, fast, and accurate. Funds will be sent directly to your practice within an average of just 30 days.

Will dispensing be time consuming?

It takes less than 10 minutes to dispense medication to your patient. Claims are adjudicated in minutes. With the significant reduction in pharmacy calls, in-office dispensing actually saves time while increasing profitability.

Who can assist in dispensing? Will I need to hire additional staff?

Rules will vary from state to state, however in most states your office staff is able to assist in the dispensing process under the supervision of a licensed dispensing physician. Determining the need for additional staff will be based on the volume and size of your practice. In smaller practices it is not usually necessary to hire additional staff. Larger practices often bring on a pharmacy technician to assist in the dispensing process.
