At TFG Partners, we’re among the best-known pharmacy claim auditing companies with unrivaled proprietary software and audit methods.

After a pharmacy benefit plan audit, it benefits your company and plan members to monitor continuously with the same methods and software. Our plan monitoring and audit reports are powerful strategic management tools with information on every pharmaceutical benefits claim payment. They give clear oversight of third-party administrators and assist in-house staff with detailed information. When sudden cost increases or unexpected budget fluctuations occur, real-time explanations are invaluable to management decision-making. Monitoring claim payment continuously service nearly always saves more than it costs.

Auditing Pharmacy Benefit Plans Has Multiple Benefits
Each benefit plan for pharmaceutical medicine’s design and formulary are one-of-a-kind and need to be followed carefully. While TPA’s routinely promise to be thorough, only an independent pharmaceutical claim auditing company like TFG Partners can review and confirm it. For example, a way that many plans go off track scripts are written for name-brand medicines and claims paid at their much-higher prices when generic versions are available. It’s a quick catch for skilled auditors and one that helps save surprising sums of money while making continuing to provide the needed outcomes for plan members – high-quality generics are just as safe and effective as name-brands.
Because outstanding member service is a goal of every plan, audits and monitoring add significant value, especially for those in high-deductible plans. Flagging over-payments, double-payments, and other errors helps members as well as the plan sponsor. When plans are audited and monitored more frequently claim administration is more accurate. A well-managed plan is the goal of every employer, and their in-house managers understand it’s time-consuming to recover payments made in error. Therefore, it’s a better approach to audit and monitor continuously to keep claim payments error-free.
