About Blood Glucose Monitors
Blood glucose monitoring is a way of testing the concentration of glucose in the blood (glycemia). Particularly important in the care of diabetes mellitus, a blood glucose test is performed by piercing the skin (typically, on the finger or arm) to draw blood, then applying the blood to a chemically active disposable 'test-strip'. Different manufacturers use different technology, but most systems measure an electrical characteristic, and use this to determine the glucose level in the blood.

Healthcare professionals advise patients with diabetes on the appropriate monitoring regime for their condition. Most people with Type 2 diabetes test at least once per day. Diabetics who use insulin (all Type 1 diabetes and many Type 2s) usually test their blood sugar more often (3 to 10 times per day), both to assess the effectiveness of their prior insulin dose and to help determine their next insulin dose.

Improved technology for measuring blood glucose is rapidly changing the standards of care for all diabetic people. Some modern monitors can download readings to a computer which can then be submitted to the physician electronically. Most insurance in the United State including Medicare and Medicaid cover diabetes testing supplies.

A blood glucose monitor is an electronic device for measuring the blood glucose level. A relatively small drop of blood is placed on a disposable test strip which interfaces with a digital meter. Within several seconds, the level of blood glucose will be shown on the digital display. Blood glucose test strips must match the monitor in order to function properly. Most blood glucose test kits come with the monitor and enough supplies for 10 to 30 days. Thereafter, blood glucose test strips matching the monitor will need to be resupplied periodically. Some monitors also require calibration and accuracy testing. Supplies for that purpose are usually included with the monitor. The physician will instruct the patient on how often to test and what to do with the results.

About Quality Management Program™ (QMP™)
Pro Pharma’s Quality Management Program™ (QMP) is a multi-faceted approach that targets the pharmacy benefit cost and quality from multiple directions; namely, physician prescribing decisions, member demands, pharmacy oversight and patient education, HR rep education, and messaging to actives/retirees. The program is focused on providing patients and physicians specific tools designed to make more informed purchasing decisions that expand member co-pay dollars. The bottom line is: payers (self-insured, employers, Trusts, etc.) lower their pharmacy trend.

About Invoice Screening™
About 10% of drugs spend is being paid from PBM Invoices, and should have been rejected by clients prior to payment. Pro Pharma’s Invoice Screening™ analyzes invoices against: formulary compliance, compliance with MAC pricing, eligibility, claims pricing, invalid claims, and excluded benefits, pre-payment as an Accounts Payable function. This ensures that clients only pay for valid claims, which saves time and dollars in the long run.

About JCode Calculator™
Pro Pharma has developed a Standardized Injectable Fee Schedule to assist with the management of claims payments. The advantage to this product is that it bases all Injectable reimbursement on AWP, WAC and ASP cost, and can be customized for drug category discounts or multiple discounts based on drug type or specialty. It includes at least one AWP for every HCPS Code and CPT code description; NDC, brand name, generic name, strength, package size, etc. This look-up reference tool provides non-pharmacist billing and claims personnel with the information and knowledge to process and reimburse claims in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner.

About Rx MAC List™ (Pharmacy Maximum Allowable Cost™)
The Cost of Drugs is Skyrocketing. Pro Pharma develops and maintains customized MAC Lists for clients to help manage the effects of rapid and high increase of drug prices
