Buy And Bill

“Buy and bill” is a term used by health care providers when an office or facility purchases Rituxan, then bills an insurer for reimbursement. Once the bill is submitted, your office is reimbursed for the product. With buy and bill, you can maintain a stock of Rituxan, giving you the flexibility to treat your patients when clinically appropriate.
