NEWS AND UPDATES
last updated 9/18/23
FLU SHOTS AVAILABLE
Flu shots are here! We have high dose and regular shots available. You can get one at your appointment or swing by during business hours.
The compounding pharmacy is shipping again! Many of you have already received your orders, and the pharmacy anticipates being back to normal by October!
FURTHER COMPOUNDED SEMAGLUTIDE UPDATES
Well folks, I have yet another unfortunate update regarding the semaglutide. APS pharmacy is experiencing FURTHER delays due to the severe weather affecting supply chains. They are missing one of the components that they need to compound the medication and don’t expect supply chains to be back up until mid August. The pharmacy has been really unclear regarding what this means for previously submitted orders that haven’t shipped yet, so I will be checking on this regularly. As always I promise to do everything in my power to keep you updated.
I realize that this is really frustrating and believe me I am equally frustrated as I feel like I promised a service that I have not been able to provide consistently. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions.
ANNUALS AND BILLING
We are aware that many of you received a message regarding annual exams, medical problems and billing in your Elation passport account from another office. We want to reassure you that your care will not change at Titan Healthcare. It has ALWAYS been the case that annual exams are about prevention and not a time to review chronic medical problems or new complaints. This is why annual exams are usually not subject to co-pays. If we discuss chronic disease management or new complaints during an annual exam you will be subject to a co-pay and/or deductible for your visit just like you would for a regular office visit. While we as a clinic get reimbursed less if you “add on” to an annual exam we will continue to provide services when warranted in order to serve the needs of our patients.
That being said, it is good to keep in mind that if you bring in a list of concerns or problems to your annual exam you run the risk of not getting all of your needs met. As providers we can only juggle so many issues at a time. It might be in your best interest (and the best interest of your provider) if you schedule a separate visit for your chronic disease management or new concerns so that they can be addressed adequately and thoroughly.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out.
** If you do not want to receive Passport messages for offices other than Titan Healthcare please call the other office and ask to have your Passport account disabled**
CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES AND VISIT REQUIREMENTS
Starting in May there are new guidelines regarding controlled substance prescribing. We are now required to have an in person appointment for initial prescribing of any controlled substances and at least once a year in person appointment for prescribing moving forward. Refills can be authorized via telehealth as long as there is a documented in person visit within the last 12 months.
If you have not been seen in office and need refills of controlled substances please call soon as our schedules are filling up fast.
Controlled substances include:
Narcotics : Vicodin, percocet, tramadol, hydrocodone
Stimulants: Most ADD meds (Phentermine, Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta)
Sleep medications: Ambien, lunesta
Anti-anxiety: any benzodiazepine (lorazepam, alprazolam). Including short term prescriptions for travel or procedures.
Nationwide Adderall shortage !If you have been experiencing difficulty filling your Adderall (or Ritalin) prescription, please know that you are not alone. This is a nationwide drug shortage that started in October 2022 and is estimated to last through 2023. At Titan, we are sympathetic to how this shortage may affect your quality of life. Unfortunately, we do not have any special access to information about pharmacy inventory. If you are experiencing difficulty obtaining your prescription, you will need to call the pharmacy directly for more information -- you may even have to call other pharmacies to inquire about their inventory. If you would like a paper copy of your prescription so that you can take it to the pharmacy of your choice, please contact the office.
