Priority Health and Local Pharmacies Help Medicare Members Get the Right Medications at the Right Price

Medicare members now have the ability to control their out-of-pocket prescription costs through a free Medication Therapy Management program developed by Priority Health. The program offers Priority Health members the opportunity to meet one-on-one with pharmacists to review all of their medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and herbal and vitamin supplements. The free service helps members identify any drug-related problems such as duplications, drug interactions and under- and over-drug usage. The pharmacist then works directly with the member’s physician to resolve any problems and to identify any possible cost savings. In its first year, the optional program helped 61 percent of members identify a cost savings.
