Did You Know…

Did you know that PDCRx prefers local pharmacies?

PDCRx believes in paying the pharmacy fairly as well as building a connection with the pharmacy.

We have worked with pharmacies across the country and have been referred by such pharmacies to hospices nationwide time and time again. PDCRx is not limited by the current pharmacies we have in our network and has the ability to increase our network of available pharmacies for your hospice. We are open, willing, and excited to working with all pharmacies as we, as well as your hospice, grow.

We will work with you to select the best pharmacy options as well as the best pharmacy charges.


Do you have a topic for Clinical Material that you would like to see covered?

MELODY MYERS
Clinical Assistant

Melody MeyersMeet our wonderful Melody! She has been a crucial piece of the PDC team since 2010. Throughout this time, she has learned a lot about the company, and she looks forward to continuing her growth with PDC while investing her time into its future. She was first a huge help on our PDC Customer Service Team, and now she is now a Clinical Assistant to our Doctor of Pharmacy. Mel, as we like to call her, was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She graduated from Memorial High School. She has a wonderful daughter and is a proud grandmother of two grandkids, both girls. In her spare time, she enjoys reading a good book, dancing, and hanging out with friends and family. A fun fact about Mel is that her family is a descendent of the great novelist, Nathanial Hawthorne.

Thank you for all that you do Melody! We sure appreciate you!

Have you ever experienced this scenario:

It’s time to review your hospice invoice and notice that your COPD patient in the long-term care facility has apparently been ordered non-hospice covered medications that aren’t congruent with the Hospice Plan of Care related to the patient’s terminal lung condition…

After further examination of the medications, you find they have been ordered by a provider at the facility, rather than by the hospice providers and team…
