PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Good Days, one of the nation’s largest providers of financial help to seriously ill Americans who cannot afford their medication, today announced the hiring of Randall Odebralski as Chief Operating Officer.
Mr. Odebralski joins Good Days after serving as General Manager for Walgreens Specialty Pharmacies in Texas. In addition to his previous roles in the specialty pharmacy space, he has served in other leadership positions for Walgreens in multiple pharmacy business units throughout the United States for more than 19 years. Through the course of his career, Mr. Odebralski has gained unique qualifications and perspective in patient care while overseeing pharmaceutical operations concerning patients with rare and chronic diseases, in need of long-term or hospice care, in home care or with home infusion therapies, and with mail service pharmacy needs.
“Mr. Odebralski has a deep understanding and experience in the niche healthcare field of chronic and rare disease treatment, having overseen operations at specialty pharmaceuticals for one of the largest and most well-respected specialty pharmacy organizations in the world,” said Clorinda Walley, executive director of Good Days. “Our entire organization and the patients we serve will benefit from his expertise and commitment to helping those who face life-threatening diseases and the financial challenges that come with it.”
“Walgreens has long partnered with Good Days to help underinsured patients enroll in their vital financial assistance programs that are a last line of defense for many chronic disease sufferers,” said Mr. Odebralski. “Time and again, I have experienced first-hand the exceptional work that this organization is known for and the countless lives that have been saved as a result. I am honored to join such a dedicated team and to contribute to their work ensuring that people who face chronic illness can enjoy more good days ahead.”
Eligible patients can utilize Good Days’ patient assistance programs to cover out-of-pocket costs such as copays or even for travel assistance to and from medical treatments. At this very moment, millions of Americans are forced to go without medications that can better their lives. Although most chronic disease patients have valid insurance, it’s estimated that nearly 30 percent of them cannot afford their out-of-pocket costs.
With a unique business structure, as well as innovative approach to implementing technology and proprietary systems, Good Days has virtually redefined the way physicians and pharmacies connect with patients. By utilizing a modernized workflow, prevalent public fundraising presence and our expansive network of trusted partners, Good Days is continuously pursuing its mission to remove barriers to patient access.
