Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals Access and Reimbursement Manager, Indiana in Indianapolis, Indiana
Access and Reimbursement Manager, Indiana
JR000011099 Access and Reimbursement Manager, Indiana (Open)
ARD Field Office - USA405
ARM Role Description
The primary responsibility of the ARM is to help create and maintain treatment access for patients through the duration of the course of therapy. While the sales specialist drives new business demand, the ARM leads the “pull-through” process on open cases by taking compliant actions that improve access and expedite a patient's start to treatment. The ARM facilitates this process by working directly with prescribing offices, contracted Specialty Pharmacies, the Patient Service Center, and sales colleagues.
In addition to leading case “pull-through”, the ARM also identifies payer trends, alerts business partners, and takes initiative around developing, coordinating and executing tactical plans in order to create and maintain treatment access for patients. Due to the ARM’s leadership and access expertise, this individual is viewed by colleagues and customers as a valuable resource that plays a critical role in their success.
The ARM consistently demonstrates uncompromised ethics and integrity while helping others understand legal and regulatory parameters related to anti-kickback statutes, fraud and abuse, off-label promotion, and OIG guidance related to patient assistance programs.
The ideal candidate enjoys working in a fast-paced environment and has the ability to prioritize business needs, solve complex problems, develop strong customer relationships, and motivate others to take appropriate action to move cases forward. The ARM needs to quickly and successfully adapt to evolving and changing business needs.
