Pharmacy App for Carolina Care Plan Members

For customers of Carolina Care Plan, you might be interested to learn a bit about a new pharmacy app available in both the Apple and Android app store. From the release:
“Earlier this year, Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (Medco) released its Medco Pharmacy® app for smartphones to help members and their providers look for lower-cost options for their prescription drugs. The app is designed to boost medication adherence, help members make informed decisions, improve careand save money.
The Medco Pharmacy app is updated with real-time information and is personalized with a member’s
specific prescription drug benefit information and history. It includes:

  • My Rx Choices® – Members see lower-cost options available through their specific prescription drug benefit, helping them make informed decisions with their providers while still in the exam room. Coverage review information is available, as well as a drug interaction checker to notify the member if taking a specific prescription drug may interact with other medications the member is taking.
  • My Medicine Cabinet – Members get an easy tool to help them manage the array of instructions that come with multiple prescriptions. Members can set reminders through the app so they never miss a dose or refill, and their medication history is also loaded and updated automatically.
  • Pharmacy Care Alerts – Registered users will receive safety alerts about any potential risks with the prescription drugs they are taking. (Added December 2011.)
  • Prescription Refills/Renewals – All users who have prescriptions filled through the Medco Pharmacy mail-order service will be able to refill and renew prescriptions directly from their smartphones. (Added December 2011.)”
