Switching NDCs Has Never Been Easier!
Pharmsaver is bringing you another tool to help you save! We want to give you more information on NDC switches so you can get the exact products you want with the best prices. Here's how it works:
If you use match by GPI or GPI Override to get the most possible savings, after you upload your Purchase Order (PO) some NDCs will be highlighted in blue where the NDC changed.
** To access this setting click on "My Account" and "Manage Account". Scroll down to "Pharmacy Best Price Ordering" and use the dropdown next to "Match Order" to select. **
These NDCs are highlighted because the item in your cart was automatically switched to a GPI equivalent with better savings!
Here is where the New Feature comes in, simply click on one of these highlighted NDCs and it will take you to a page showing your original NDC and the current NDC. It will also include price differences, manufacturer changes, total savings, and the total percent saved.
The Manufacturers for the NDC will be shown on the top row along with the quantity and description of the item.
The old and new price will be shown, as seen below, along with total savings and the percent saving.
The buttons at the bottom will let you choose which option you would like to use. We realize pharmacies have some items that need to be NDC consistent while others can be NDC Switched for the greatest possible savings.
The big blue button (as seen highlighted below) will change the item back to its original NDC, and find the best possible savings. The text within the button will show you the wholesaler it will be moved to and what percent savings off the original price you still receive. As you can see in the example, the pharmacy would only lose around 1% savings for keeping the NDC consistent, and the item will be moved to IPC.
"Cancel" will maintain the greatest possible savings with the new NDC we matched the item on, or you may choose to revert the item back to your Primary Wholesaler.
We feel that this tool will allow pharmacies to have greater control over the items and savings in their cart. More savings tools are coming soon to PharmSaver! Keep watching our BLOG for more information!
