Overview

Scriptpharm has a contracted network of over 2 400 pharmacies that provide services in acute, chronic, HIV and oncology medicine management and is contracted to numerous Medical Schemes, as either a Designated Service Provider (DSP) or a Preferred Provider (PP).

Clearly defined protocols and widely available formularies are applied to ensure appropriate and cost effective medicines are dispensed by our network providers.

In addition, the Scriptpharm Pharmacy Network offers a national DSP of retail pharmacies which include corporate groups, independents and courier pharmacies which:

  • Significantly improves member access
  • Improves member compliance
  • Reduces member co-payments
  • Significantly improves pharmacy compliance to most cost effective medication

Pharmacists are required to:

  • Interact with prescribers of medicines where chronic medication prescribed does not fall within the formulary or any rational therapy.
  • Maintain pricing files and carry the formularies on their system.

Using the contracted network of pharmacies, ensures that the following key criteria are adhered to by the pharmacies and that we are able to achieve savings:

  • Compliance to our Branded formulary (which may be customized per scheme.)
  • Compliance to the utilisation of more cost-efficient medicine.
  • Adherence to audit requirements to reduce fraud, waste and abuse.

Our pharmacy network includes a national footprint with pharmacies conveniently located across the country.
