What is a Biologic Coordinator?

A biologic coordinator is an individual, or group of individuals, within a dermatologist’s office who manages a patient’s journey from prescription to drug acquisition. This role navigates the complexities of patient access on behalf of those prescribed biologics.

In addition to drug and disease education, a BC’s efforts entail communicating with insurance providers, completing enrollment forms, reviewing benefit verifications, submitting prior authorizations, writing appeals and letters of medical necessity, directing patient assistance and bridge programs, and coordinating all efforts of specialty pharmacies and manufacturer HUBs.

It is no surprise that the most rewarding part of the job is when a patient who has suffered from psoriasis or atopic dermatitis for years offers tearful gratitude for what one has made possible for them through ensuring access to transformative medication.

If you ask a biologic coordinator what they do, you may hear one say, “We change lives.”
