Personal Injury

How We Can Help

After entering into a Lien Agreement or Letter of Protection (LOP) with one of our funding partners, your patient can secure payment for medication with settlement proceeds. IWP’s relationship with our funding partners offers fast and reliable prescription care for your patients and is an alternative to traditional insurance. Patients will now be able to have access to prescribed medication with minimal out-of-pocket costs (deductible or co-pay may apply depending on the policy) at the time of delivery, ensuring they follow the treatment plan.

Can my patient use IWP if their insurance carrier directed them to a different pharmacy?

Often times patients’ prescriptions, especially for narcotics, don’t get filled immediately at a local pharmacy. The local pharmacy needs authorization and many times may not have the drug in stock. We have access to the medication and can send it directly to your patient via UPS overnight delivery. Back to Top

Logistically speaking, why would a patient not want to go to their local pharmacy?

This depends on your state’s regulations. In most states, your patients have the right to choose their pharmacy. However, some states allow insurance carriers to direct your patients to certain pharmacies. Be sure you know the rules of your state in this regard. Back to Top

Won’t it take up my staff’s time to send in prescriptions to IWP?

Often times a patient’s injury can make moving around painful or difficult. Getting to pharmacy can be further complicated if they do not have access to transportation. As long as they have a physical address, UPS can deliver medications directly to your patient’s home. Back to Top

Won’t my patients get their medications faster from their local pharmacy?

Once your patients have enrolled with IWP they will receive their medication consistently each month, when it is due. They will not have to go through the pre-authorization process each month[1]. Our goal is to maintain continuity of care for your patient so that he or she can return to healthy and productive life as quickly as possible. Back to Top

My patients are happy at their local pharmacy, why would they use IWP?

IWP values patient choice. If your patient is happy with his or her current pharmacy and does not want to switch, then we will respect that decision. However, we encourage patients to be aware of all options so that they can make an informed decision. Your patients may not be aware of IWP and the benefits that ensue once on service. Back to Top

My patients aren’t having Workers’ Compensation issues, why use IWP?

Even if your patients aren’t having problems now with their local pharmacy, there’s a good chance that an issue can arise down the line that may cause a disruption in their prescription care. However, if enrolled in the IWP program they will be able to benefit from continuous care while we deal with any issues by working directly with the insurance carrier. Use IWP to prevent headaches for you and your patients; the best headache is the one you never get. Back to Top
