In her role in our clinical pharmacy program, Cheryl Catoggio creates formalized training and quality assurance programs for each client. In collaboration with program directors, she establishes appropriate policies, procedures, online training materials, and in-depth quality assurance measures based upon our individual clients’ needs.
Catoggio began her career at UMass Medical School in 2004 as a consultant pharmacist for Massachusetts Medicaid's Drug Utilization Review Program. She brought a decade’s worth of experience in hospital, managed care, and retail pharmacy.
Catoggio’s expertise in applicable rules and regulations has aided UMass Medical School in working with long-term care facilities to provide claims processing and reimbursement services for Medicare Part D prescription drugs. The claims are submitted on behalf of schools, hospitals, and state institutions serving people with developmental disabilities. By increasing the volume of claims accepted by Medicare Prescription Drug Plans, we are able to maximize reimbursement revenues to these state facilities.
Catoggio received a bachelor's of science degree from Northeastern University in Boston and a bachelor's of arts degree from UMass Lowell.
