Transparency + Accessibility + Value
Myers and Stauffer provides meaningful careers where our associates know their work truly makes a difference in the lives of others. In January, we feature Natalie Hosier (senior manager, Indianapolis), who shares her thoughts on how her work with pharmacy price transparency shapes her perspective on its implications for fragile populations, including people like her nephew.
“I do what I do because helping our clients create increased transparency within their programs allows for additional or enhanced services for their members. We are able to assist with transparency by conducting analyses to assess program policy compliance, including fiscal evaluations to identify instances of over-payment relating to pharmaceutical products.
This resonates with me personally as a pharmacist and as an aunt. As a pharmacist, it is important to me that individuals are given the utmost care in every aspect of their health. As an aunt, I have a nephew who has autism. With an autism diagnosis, there comes a significant need for multiple services, including speech therapy, physical therapy, and behavioral therapy, to name a few. At his diagnosis, we were told that he would likely be non-verbal for his life. Luckily for my nephew, he was able to get access to those services and today is completely verbal. Helping our clients with transparency increases accessibility of critical services to individuals like my nephew who have autism or other disabilities.”
