Q: What kind of work does your company do in 340B and what makes it stand out?
Maxor provides TPA services for the 340B program and is the leading provider of pharmacy management services for covered entities. We’re extremely proud of the dedication of our people and the results we provide our customers. We never forget that the work we do allows covered entities to provide vital services to underserved populations.
Q: Why did you choose to work in the 340B space?
I actually chose to work specifically for Maxor, rather than in the 340B space in general, because I wanted to join an organization that was truly dedicated to delivering superb pharmacy services to clients. I knew several members of the Maxor team and how hard they work on behalf of their 340B clients.
Q: What do you feel is your most significant contribution to the 340B world or to a 340B customer/client?
I believe that my experience in the benefits, administration, and dispensing areas, now combined with the 340B knowledge and experience I’ve gained, gives me an opportunity to provide unique insights to our customers. Understanding every aspect of how a pharmacy transaction works, whether 340B or not, is vital in understanding the overall drug spend for many of our clients.
Q: What advice do you have for a young professional who has recently launched a career in the 340B space?
Never be afraid to ask a question or to say that you need something explained again. This is an especially unique and challenging program in a unique and challenging industry, and I can promise you that everyone is still learning something new every day. I’d also advise them to appreciate the work that your customers do and remember the patients that they’re serving. It makes long, sometimes frustrating days much easier when you remember you’re working on behalf of patients who need these essential services.
