Default ITSRX

Do not go to work for this company! One of the owners is certifiable. You've been warned.

Can you elaborate? I was thinking of applying for a job with this company. Is it a high pressure environment? How reasonable are the sales goals and comp plan?

As a competitor, I can tell you that ITSRX provides rock star service. They are untouchable in the Hep C market.

Lol Re: ITSRX

Hmmm....looks like all the people who couldn't make their numbers because of poor sales skills are complaining about the company, while the people who actually work love working at ITSRx.

Talking Re: ITSRX

POS company. Just expanded out into my territory. The only accounts their picking up are the ankle bitters. I then focus my attention to those accounts and make them mine. Lets see how long they last until they starve.

Its only a matter of time before this "POS" company takes all of your accounts. Not only at the prescriber level, but at the payer level. You should probably just quit and find a new job in a different industry now.

Not going to happen, I own the Hep-C and Oncology market for the entire state. I've got all of the big universities, research groups, and large private sector groups writing for me. All of the manufacturers reps carry my forms, and actively keep you and any other POS company out.

Pack it up now buddy. Go back to your sandbox and let the big boys play!

It's actually against pharma guidelines for these manufacturer reps to "carry" and distribute your forms. There's going to be a major crackdown on SP practices and it's just a matter of time before all that will stop.

I know someone who works for ITSRx. They will soon have a larger national presence while continuing to focus on patient care and service.

No shit it's against guidelines to do this. I hate to ruin your little imaginary Utopian dream world where "patient choice" is a real thing, and docs aren't swayed by speaker fees. But it happens. It's all about relationships my friend, and mine are keeping you OUT!

The "New" ITSRx will be the largest independent SP nationally within 48 months. Sit back and enjoy the show!

I love how the Chief Technology Officer is also the President of Creehan (the software that powers most specialty pharmacies). Major conflict there as he has the ability to look at all the big players and their dispensing history. Not to be trusted.

How much does it really take to be bigger than Diplomat?

this pharmacy calls insurance companies posing as if they're calling from the doctor's offices. They make up fake lab values just to get the prior auth approved. They also make up the diagnosis....everything is fake....stay away!!!

1) Neither Bioscrip nor Walgreen's are part of the Kalydeco network

2) AcariaHealth calls insurance companies to do benefits investigations and get PAs. They do NOT make up lab values to do that. Since they own the Hep C market, there would be no reason to do that.

Yes, Walgreens has access to Kalydeco through either McKesson or Cardinal. If you're using the Vertex Website as your guide, take a look at the Incivek access grid it also does not list Walgreens as a distributor. However, we both know Walgreens is handing you your ass in the Hep-C market in Incivek referrals.

As far as Inlyta yes Walgreens has that. They also have Xalkori, and the largest most varied way to get medication to patients. What do you have, a new name?

I worked there and I know for a fact that they scew with the information for PA to get approved, on all medications. Also it was a common practice to call insurance companies acting as doctors or nurses to get the prior authorization approved as fast as possible, since we had all the doctors information on hand including tax ID and licence ID. Funniest part that most of these patients where doubled or tripled up on there monthly medications and the company would still set deliveries. Biggest scam I have ever seen triple charging medications every month. Calling manufactures of drugs as patients for replacements of injunctions because the medication was cloudy or the injection divice failed, that was a load of crap most of the time it was because the delivery was left out side for to long or delivered to the wronge house or patients were not told to refregerate medication. I don't know why insurance companies don't do there own investigations and sue companies like this.

After working for several startup to corporate SPs over the past 20 year or so, "patient care" has never really been a focus, just a revenue generator. Lot of SPs are losing too, market way too filled. I mean hell, wasn't ITSRX bought for like $250m? That's a pretty significant loss. Remember when CuraScript was a big name? Now they are just Accredo, NABP number changed and everything.

There is no longer big money in SPs like their used to be, it's all in the data now. Clinical, dispense and patient tracking is where all the "new" money is at.

No way, the press releases in the past said ITSRX was bought for less then $30 Million. Do they still have a sales force? Wonder if there getting kicked to the curb..
