What is a field reimbursement and access specialist?

Field reimbursement manager
Our field reimbursement and access specialists (FRAS) —an exceptionally skilled group of reimbursement professionals who execute coverage and access support in the field—are out in healthcare offices across the country every day, using their knowledge of coverage, patient assistance, and health policy to educate office staff and break through access issues to ultimately help patients. As an extension of a manufacturer’s team, our FRAS teams assist provider offices in resolving complex reimbursement issues that may create barriers to access for patients.  From oral medications to biosimilars to critical cancer treatments, our associates, with their passion for patients, represent these therapies and assist those who need to gain access.
