Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network (CPESN)


In early 2014, CCNC created the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network (CPESN) in order to provide additional capacity for delivery of medication management services to the population in greatest need. Community pharmacy is an ideal setting of care for delivery of these services, as NC Medicaid claims data indicate that the portion of the population most in need of medication management visits the pharmacy > 35 times annually. Consistent with CCNC’s other Pharmacy Programs, the goal of the CPESN is to improve quality of care and patient outcomes related to medication use, thereby improving the patient’s overall health trajectory and the total cost of care. The CPESN is an open network which includes 153 NC pharmacies as of 4/1/2015.

The CPESN is part of a 3-year grant funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to test payment reform in community pharmacies for Medicaid, Medicare, dually eligible Medicare-Medicaid, and NC Health Choice beneficiaries by using a collaborative care model where community pharmacy is part of the medical home care team.

In partnership with CCNC, CPESN pharmacies will provide enhanced pharmacy services that are above and beyond prescription dispensing and basic patient education. Services such as synchronization of a patient’s chronic medication fill dates, adherence monitoring and coaching, compliance packaging, and home delivery are some of the services offered by many CPESN pharmacies. Pharmacies participating in the grant additionally offer comprehensive medication review, care plan development and reinforcement, and longitudinal follow up as core services.
