Project Information

Impact of an outpatient pharmacy financial assistance formulary at an academic medical center

Project Description: This project will consist of developing an updated formulary for patients that are eligible for the financial assistance program (FAP). The current formulary was last reviewed in 2009, and since then there have been many changes in pharmaceutical drugs and the evidence based-practice of medicine. With these changes, it is important to develop a formulary that encompasses a wider population that uses our outpatient pharmacy. The current cost of the financial assistance program is valued at $2.6 million, which includes both patients enrolled in FAP and also patients who qualify for a safe discharge through social work that also use the program..
