    Job Description
    Directly, and through our subsidiaries, Omnicare provides a broad array of pharmacy-related services to long term care facilities and to other customers in the health care environment. While senior care has long been an Omnicare specialty, we also serve other targeted populations.

    Overview: CVS Health/Omnicare has an exciting opportunity to join our growing team in Spartanburg, SC.

    The Spartanburg, SC Clinical Intervention Center (CIC) does not acquire, receive, store, dispense or administer drug products.

    The CVS Health/Omnicare Clinical Intervention Center supports pharmacy operations by creating efficiencies in the dispensing function while focusing on relevant clinical care for patients and optimizing customer satisfaction through positive outcomes. The CIC is staffed with both clinically trained pharmacists and technical support personnel.

    The primary purpose of the Clinical Intervention Center pharmacy staff is to provide clinical support services to long term care dispensing pharmacies for multiple states. These services include:
    • Supporting Omnicare pharmacy operations by assuming responsibility for more cumbersome, time-consuming clinical assessment and intervention on prescribed medication therapy.
    • Managing rejected clinical claims by requesting to prescribers a "covered" alternative to a drug product that has been denied for reimbursement by a third party prescription plan such as Medicare Part D, commercial insurer or Medicaid, and making changes to existing orders within the pharmacy operating system based upon the response of the prescriber.
    • Initiating Prior Authorizations or Medical Exceptions based upon information from the patient's medical records when required by the payer.
    • Generating Patient Specific Therapeutic Interchange requests for prescribers for cost savings or a clinically superior drug to that drug originally prescribed by the clinician, and making changes to existing orders within the pharmacy operating system based upon the response of the prescriber.
    • Implementing Facility Formulary preferences for prospective medication changes on dispensing.
    • Coordinating specific National Account or multi-chain customer requests.

    This full time position in Spartanburg, SC offers a 7-on/7-off 3rd shift schedule working Wednesday-Tuesday 9pm-8am. This is a benefit eligible position.
