The workers’ compensation system in New Jersey provides important benefits for workers who are injured while on the job. One benefit is to cover all of the costs of any necessary medical treatment related to the injury. Unfortunately, workers’ comp insurance companies often challenge the need for certain types of treatment including certain pharmaceuticals. However, we believe that a physician—not an insurance company—knows best about what types of medication an injured worker needs. Therefore, we strive to provide injured workers with their needed medication even in the face of an insurance dispute. We work with workers’ compensation attorneys and insurers to handle any red tape or paperwork so that injured workers can instead focus on their recovery and returning to work. We also provide free delivery so that workers do not have to come into our retail pharmacy to utilize our services.
No two people react to medication in the same way. As a result, traditionally, medical treatment has involved a trial and error process of determining which medication and dosage will be most effective for a particular patient with a given medical condition. This often leads to extended recovery times and a waste of both time and money for both the healthcare provider and the patient. In addition, it can result in serious side effects or drug reactions that may require additional medical treatment. Fortunately, modern medicine has been able to cut down on the time that must be takenin order to determine the best course of treatment. Pharmacogenetic testing involves a non-invasive test (a cheek swab or saliva sample) to extract DNA, which is then tested in a lab. A report is then issued from which we can study your genetic variations and predetermine your reaction to certain drugs. This means that, based on the genetic test, we can help you avoid medications that may be unsafe or ineffective. In addition, we can use this information to tailor unique compounds for the best result based on your genetic makeup.
Our non-invasive test takes a matter of minutes and you will receive your results in about a week. After you have received your results, we will consult with you regarding your genetic profile and discuss how your results will affect your medical treatment. Our test covers 14 classes of drugs and provides results that will last for a lifetime.
