Clinical Programs:

Southern Scripts employs a variety of clinical programs designed to help plans manage drug utilization and promotes the use of drugs with the lowest net cost to the plan. Drug pricing alone will not ensure savings are realized. Savings to a plan are mostly achieved through well-designed and appropriately targeted drug management programs. Southern Scripts leverages its unique knowledge base of retail pharmacy, clinical pharmacy, and benefit management to design programs that will influence drug mix and truly drives savings.

Southern Scripts uses a fully automated system with very robust edits that are individualized for all clients. There are no charges for customizing edits. Southern Scripts has a host of standard prescription edits including, but are not limited to, Quantity Limits, Day Supply Limits, Percent Consumed, Max Dollar Amount, and Age/Gender Restrictions. Additionally, our clinical pharmacists design and manage Prior Authorization and Step Therapy Programs. As part of our standard services, our clinical pharmacists also perform Medication Therapy Management (MTM) reviews for targeted high cost and/or high risk members.
