Our mission is to decrease your pharmacy cost by creating a cost-based partnership with your hospice while maintaining optimal patient care.
You want to provide the best palliative care, social, emotional, and spiritual support to your patients and their families, yet you have many different challenges that make your job more difficult. Government regulations are increasing, yet your reimbursements are in constant jeopardy. In addition, you must now compete more than ever.
Hospice Pharmacy Solutions (HPS) is a privately owned Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) for the hospice provider. We provide high quality services, including cost based pricing for your medications, free automated CMS required reports package and software interfaces. We partner with you to achieve the best possible outcome for your patients through formulary management, education and innovative reporting tools.
The cornerstone of our company is the relationship we build through trust and full disclosure with our customers. We want you to be able to make an educated decision about which PBM you want to use.

HPS Sponsoring Hospice Action Network's Advocacy Intensive in July
Hospice Pharmacy Solutions believes in hospice care and is doing its part in letting lawmakers know about this valuable service. HPS, a Dallas-based pharmacy benefit management service with programs specific to hospice providers, is supporting the hospice community by sponsoring the Hospice Action Network’s (HAN) 2016 Advocacy Intensive, July 18 and 19, in Washington, D.C.
“HPS works hand-in-hand with hospice providers across the country,” said Jack Sayler, HPS president. “We see the remarkable work delivered by hospice caregivers, and we’re honored to be able to support those caregivers at this year’s Advocacy Intensive.”
The HAN Advocacy Intensive is an advocacy event for the hospice community, held annually in Washington, D.C. The event brings hospice caregivers together with members of Congress to effect change for the hospice community.
In 2015, more than 275 hospice advocates from 49 states and the District of Columbia represented the hospice community on Capitol Hill. While in Washington, D.C., hospice professionals will meet with members of Congress to discuss federal legislation that impacts hospice care, such as a proposed Medicare Advantage Hospice “Carve-in,” the Care Planning Act and the Rural Access to Hospice Act. The event is free; however, lodging and transportation are not covered. HPS’ sponsorship will provide scholarship funding for travel and hotel costs, which allows active hospice caregivers to attend the Advocacy Intensive.
In late 2015, HPS merged Sacramento-based Outcome Resources into its operation. Outcome Resources was HAN’s first scholarship sponsor in 2013, and HPS is proud to continue this important support. HPS understands the unique role hospice provides in the healthcare continuum. “Hospice professionals have powerful stories of compassion and care,” added Sayler. “HPS is proud to provide support so they can share those stories with our lawmakers.”
