As previously communicated, Independence is committed to transforming the delivery and affordability of health care. PreCheck MyScript is an online tool powered by FutureScripts®, our independent pharmacy benefits manager, and embedded directly in electronic medical record (EMR) platforms. The tool gives doctors a real-time, seamless view of a member's prescription cost-share amount based on the member's specific health plan benefits.
These real-time details help improve patients' experience and health by:
- enabling providers to have more constructive conversations with their patients;
- providing the information, comfort, and insight the provider needs to make more informed prescribing decisions related to the pharmacy benefit;
- giving providers more time to spend with their patients by auto-sorting through prescription drug lists and prior authorization processes;
- and minimizing prescription delays, dispensing of unnecessarily higher-cost medications and other barriers that could lead to medication non-compliance.
PreCheck MyScript also gives the provider insight into whether their patients’ medication requires a prior authorization. If prior authorization is required, doctors can request approval immediately through the tool. Independence has seen an increase in prior authorizations initiated electronically since August 1, 2018, when the tool was made available.
We want our members and their doctors to feel confident in the health care decisions they make. Knowing that the right medications are being prescribed at the most affordable cost and without unnecessary delays is an important part of ensuring that confidence.
