New Local Pharmacy Participates in EpiPen Patient Assistance Program, Combatting Mylan's Recent Price Increase

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - STUDIO CITY, CA - Sep 08, 2016 - ​Elements Pharmacy, founded by Sherri Cherman, Pharm.D., a specialty pharmacy industry veteran, has launched the next generation ‘specialty at retail’ pharmacy concept, serving customers for more than just their usual prescription refills. Dr. Cherman has transformed the atmosphere of a typical pharmacy into a beautiful, clean and welcoming experience, maintaining the highest level of care while keeping a local flair with a great feel and high-touch service.

Unlike most big-box pharmacies, Elements prides itself on creating an environment that reduces the anxiety around illness and medication, and focuses on forging long-lasting relationships with their customers. As both a pharmacist and a businesswoman Dr. Cherman says she is, “profoundly motivated by the role of drug therapy in patient care. We are always striving to uncover new ways to enhance our patients’ lives and make their process more seamless. They have enough stress to deal with already.”

A perfect example of this relates to the recent news of the EpiPen price increase.  Dr. Cherman believes this has placed undue stress on their customers. Mylan, the company that produces EpiPens, has been augmenting their Patient Assistance Program and has even talked about a generic EpiPen option at a reduced price, but Dr. Cherman believes that still can be too much for some patients to afford. Elements Pharmacy fully participates in Mylan’s programs and works with major wholesalers to obtain product with the longest possible expiration dating.

Unfortunately, not every pharmacy has the ability or capacity to apply assistance funds to a co-payment, which often involves a strenuous approval process. However, for all medications, Elements takes the initiative to lower patients’ co-payments as much as possible and help them with their insurance company issues. Elements believes that they are the missing element for many of their patients.
