What Are The Benefits Of Compounding
Compounding is often required for medical reasons; some patients require a particular non-essential ingredient to be removed from their medication to prevent an allergic reaction. Others require compounded medication to acquire an exact dosage amount that is unique to their own personal needs and which may not be available in the available marketed drugs.
Are Compounded Prescription Safe?
The Food and Drug Administration recognizes that the practice of pharmacy compounding is an important public health alternative for patients who require medication that is not commercially available, or not available due to drug shortages.
To ensure patient safety, compounding prescriptions must be prescribed by a licensed practitioner and compounded by a licensed pharmacist. Compounding pharmacies must also comply with the regulations set forth by Ontario College Of Pharmacists. In addition, the products and supplies used by compounding pharmacies should come from Health Canada and Ontario College of Pharmacists.
Do Insurances Cover Compounding Prescriptions?
Depending on your insurance plan, patients may be reimbursed by sending in claim forms. Many insurance companies will reimburse compounded prescriptions; however, we suggest that you consult with your insurance provider for eligible benefits.
