An expanded partnership between UPMC Health Plan and tech company Sempre offers the promise of cutting the cost of prescriptions if they don’t delay filling them. Sempre will provide text message reminders to UPMC Health Plan members to not only fill their medications on time but also stick with them. Text messages will carry discount codes that help defray the cost of drugs; the discount will be larger the earlier members act. UPMC and Sempre hopes the move will encourage members to fill and take their medication on time.
