UnitedHealthcare takes pride in how our benefit extends beyond just covering high-value medications at the lowest cost. It also encompasses the member experience and the important interactions they have with their doctor and pharmacist.
Your employees expect pharmacists to provide medication and condition information. They also expect them to have an understanding of their pharmacy benefit, which can be a difficult task given the number and complexity of health care plans.
To help our network pharmacies make the claims transaction an easier one for our members, we provide extensive messaging to pharmacists that helps better explain the benefit to their customers and offers suggestions for better value options. To further reduce questions or delays in filling a prescription, we are currently working on new capabilities that will make your employees’ experience even easier.
We will continue to innovate on behalf of your employees – at the pharmacy and anywhere else we can make a positive impact with their pharmacy benefit.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Pharmacy InFocus, and please be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have suggestions for future articles.
