Northwood has an extensive history serving health plans as a key value partner and supporting their administration of durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and medical supplies (DMEPOS) benefits.
Health plans, whether large, small or self-funded, have looked to Northwood to assist in the effective administration of their DMEPOS benefit to provide significant savings and member satisfaction. Pharmacy Benefit Management programs have allowed health plans to achieve greater cost control in the area of pharmaceuticals.
Northwood has modeled its DMEPOS administration after the strengths of the PBM strategy. Similar to what a PBM does for managing pharmacy benefits, Northwood does for the management of DMEPOS benefits. Our DBM model creates a transparent program that enhances the value of DMEPOS benefits, while reducing overall costs and improving patient care.
