Navigating her journey back to health
A 36-year-old wife and mother of two, Julie is a finance manager at the car dealership where she has worked for 10 years. When her doctor sent her for blood tests for a flu she couldn't shake, she was sent to a specialist who gave her the devastating news: a rare, fast-moving cancer.
A new medication has had very positive results.
Julie's challenge today:
- Will the prescription be covered?
- When can I access treatment?
- How does this impact home, work, life?
Julie's physician helped her contact and join the Patient Support Program for her prescribed drug.
The Patient Support Program will be her point of contact, get her the information and support she needs, and work with Medavie Blue Cross to get coverage reviewed.
Julie is approved for coverage. Instead of Julie managing the process, her Patient Support Program and Medavie Blue Cross looked after all paperwork and consultation.
The Patient Support Program coordinates with Julie for her appointments at the pharmacy. Working together, the Program and pharmacist provide Julie with ongoing education and support to help her get the full health benefits from her treatment. Medavie Blue Cross will manage her renewal, if needed.
