The top priority of a healthcare provider is to keep patients healthy.

For too long, prescribers haven’t had all the information they need to provide low-cost and effective prescription drug recommendations.

To help solve this issue, Humana supports price, formulary alternative and utilization management requirement transparency via a real-time prescription benefit service that is already integrated into many electronic health records.

When you prescribe medication, a message will pop up with a set of options, allowing you to quickly identify the lowest-cost pharmacy and medication available, including any related utilization management requirements, with your patients’ prescription drug coverage.

This transparency will help you quickly address patients’ concerns and develop a treatment plan that works for them.

And because this tool is built directly into your existing medical records system, you’ll receive patient-specific data on out-of-pocket costs.

This is a win for both prescribers and patients as it helps prescribers potentially avoid the preauthorization process and gives patients affordable medications, they’re more likely to stick with.

We know healthcare providers always appreciate efficient ways to treat their patients. This real-time prescription benefit service makes it easy for you to evaluate cost and coverage for patients.
