NHF PHARMACY PROVIDERS PRAISED FOR THEIR ROLE IN DISTRIBUTION OF NHF BENEFITS

NHF PHARMACY PROVIDERS PRAISED FOR THEIR ROLE IN DISTRIBUTION OF NHF BENEFITS

National Health Fund Pharmacy Providers filled over 2.09 million claims for the NHFCARD for the period November 1, 2008 to October 31, 2009. This amount is 17% higher than the number of claims filled during the pervious one-year period and is equal to that for the first three years of operations of the NHF. Speaking at the Awards Ceremony, Mr. Hugh Lawson, CEO of the NHF reported that the NHF paid out approximately $1.94 billion in subsidy for the claims during the year. He heaped praise on the NHF Providers for their role in the success of the distribution of NHF Individual Benefits, noting that with the harsh economic times the NHFCARD and JADEP Card provide vital support in helping individuals and families meet the cost of medication.

Thirty-two awards were made to top performing pharmacies for NHFCARD and JADEP claims. Caledonia Mall Pharmacy from Mandeville was named NHF Provider of the Year, with over 74,000 claims, while FISH Clinic Pharmacy in Papine, St. Andrew received the Chairman’s Quality Award and the Most Improved Pharmacy, was won by Eastern Pharmacy of Windward Road, in Kingston.
