increased, however, and you are experiencing stock-outs every couple of months. Due to the high cost of the device, the organizational policy is to order only 3 at a time. What do you do? 21 Success Story: Stocking Liletta (Cameron County, TX) Large percentage of patients below FPL Began stocking Liletta in March 2016 Then able to insert Liletta during the same
visit initially requested by patient because it was routinely stocked Continue to monitor stock to ensure it meets demand Key point: As a lower-cost option ($50 at 340B pricing), stocking Liletta can meet unmet patient demands for IUD 22 Success Story: Stocking Nexplanon (Southern Nevada) Patients are interested in and asking for Nexplanon
Began stocking Nexplanon in 2016 Developed policy, arranged for training, ordered devices Prepared insertion kits to facilitate insertion process Key point: Many patients, including adolescents, are interested in the contraceptive implant. Stocking it is important for ensuring access. 23 What other questions do you
