Procedures

Support procedure for patients, undergoing treatment with biological or biosimilar products

1. Declaration – Consent

Upon initial contact with the patient, they are presented with a “SAT Health” “Declaration- consent” form, regarding the personal data handling procedures. The patient is given the option to consent/withdraw from the above described personal data handling procedures.

2. Awareness

A “SAT Health” assistant provides the patient with detailed information in regard to the application procedure, resulting in treatment access.

3. Expert Medical Committee (EMC) review criteria

A “SAT Health” assistant ensures that the patient, and their detailed documentation, complies with the requirements set out by the EMC. Furthermore, they assist the patient with the collection and completion of said documentation.

4. Laboratory tests

A “SAT Health assistant directs the patient, as to where to perform the laboratory tests, and if need arises, provides logistical support and further assistance in obtaining the results by liaising with the laboratory(s).

5. Expert Medical Committee (EMC)

A “SAT Health” assistant assists the patient in coordination and guidance for the purposes of appearing before the EMC. The assistant performs a further verification of the completeness and correctness of the documentation, including the medical laboratory test results. A key requirement for attaining biological/biosimilar treatment eligibility is, for the patient to have undergone treatment using conventional procedures, resulting in insufficient, or lacking any, effect on their condition.

6. Regional Health Insurance Fund (RHIF) – National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) – RHIF

Upon confirmation of patient eligibility by the EMC, a “SAT Healthcare” assistant outlines the further document submission steps in regard to the RHIF/NHIF. During the process, the assistant keeps track of the submitted documents, their corresponding reference numbers, and the submission deadlines. If the patient cannot follow the procedure due to their medical condition, or other socioeconomic factors, they could authorize a family member, or the “SAT Healthcare” assistant, to submit the documentation on their behalf.

7. Obtaining the medication

A “SAT Healthcare” assistant further assists the patient in the final steps of the treatment process – gaining access to the medication from a pharmacy.

8.Monitoring and reminding

A “SAT Healthcare” assistant informs the patient of any further appearances before the EMC, for the purposes of treatment tracking, during its complete course.
