Here are some of the benefits of e-prescribing:
- Your doctor can locate lower-cost options when prescribing.
- Your doctor can see your medication history, eligibility, formulary and benefit information all in one place, so you get the right medicine.
- Your pharmacist receives your prescription electronically and won’t need to confirm a hand-written prescription that may be hard to read.
- Your doctor can send in new prescriptions to pharmacies without having to fax a request.
- E-prescribing technology can provide alerts between your pharmacist and doctor when new prescriptions are needed.
If you’d like to know if your doctor and pharmacy use e-prescribing, you can check the Surescripts website:
- Find e-prescribing doctors: See if your doctor e-prescribes, or find another provider who does.
- Locate e-prescribing pharmacies: Check if your pharmacy accepts electronic prescriptions, or find one that does.
The Surescripts search tools are tabs located at the very top of the Surescripts home page. Also note that this link takes you to an external site administered by Surescripts. The providers and pharmacies listed on their site may not be in your plan’s network.
