The NEW Segment part of the 'Pharmacy Compliance Guide' is hosted by Jenny Schell, CDME Sr. Compliance Strategist with R. J. Hedges & Associates.
Podcast on Medicare Applications by the Numbers
A lot of people ask me about Medicare. There is a lot of confusion on who needs what number.
Medicare Number –This division (NSC) takes about 3 months to issue a number. This application requires you to carry a surety bond and have a certificate of liability with NSC as the certificate holder as well as your AO (if you have one).
New applications as well as re-validations will require owners and authorized officials to be fingerprinted.
Two ways to complete
Revalidation happens every 3 – 5 years
What that means
You “update” your Medicare application and pay Medicare $$. Every year they change the Medicare application fee. For 2018 it is $569 per application.

How the nation’s largest legal cartels directly affect the healthcare industry.
PBM Mafia e-book and Paperback copy will be available May 7th, 2018. Receive a free signed copy by Mr. Welch at the APPA PharmaCon 2018 Annual Convention. To sign-up please visit click here. Join us as we will be discussing PBM issues and how independents can thrive in a free and lawful marketplace.
Brandon K. Welch. President of American Pharmacy Purchasing Alliance (APPA), today launched an e-book titled PBM Mafia.
The PBM Mafia e-book is aimed at informing Independent pharmacy owners, pharmacist, patients and anybody within the healthcare industry including the public on what really goes on with PBMs and how this directly affects the industry.
“This book will inform people on issues that face independent pharmacy owners and the emphasis we need to place on developing solutions,” says Welch.
“I’ve noticed an increasing amount of legal drug cartels over the past few years that has had a catastrophic effect in the independent pharmacy space. I believe independents should have the right to compete fairly in a free and lawful marketplace. If we look at what independent pharmacies do for the community, it’s almost a no brainer to want to help keep them in business,” he explains.
APPA’s goal is to keep members abreast of the latest developments and news in the pharmaceutical industry as well as offering educational opportunities for professional growth and empowerment.
“You can’t truly be an independent pharmacy by being a dependent pharmacy. APPA members will directly benefit from this book if they join forces to speak collectively with one voice and a big stick,” Welch says.
In this book, Brandon poses these questions:
“This book will shock readers how pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) are actually the nation’s largest legal cartels,” Welch adds.
In addition, some of the controversial issues tackled in this book include:
“My heart and passion lies with small business owners and It’s my duty to help continue to be a voice for the independent pharmacy realm,” Welch concludes.
The PBM Mafia book will be available on joinappa.com in May 2018 and will cost .99 cents.
“This e-book is truly an eye-opener for everybody concerned. Certainly, a must read!” states Joshua Pirestani, founder of the APPA.
