Verizon Wireless (Basking Ridge, N.J.) and Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (Franklin Lakes, N.J.) announced a mobile application that can instantly guide patients and their doctors to the lowest-cost prescription drug to meet their health needs and help them identify potentially harmful drug interactions. Available now on Verizon Wireless Android handsets and BlackBerry devices, the new Medco Pharmacy mobile app delivers critical information to help Medco members manage their prescription medications.
The Medco Pharmacy mobile app, available for download in V CAST Apps, provides information about out-of-pocket costs for any prescription drug and lower-cost options specific to a person's prescription drug plan, as well as drug interaction alerts based on the patient's prescription history – even if the patient is treated by several doctors or fills prescriptions at many different pharmacies. Once registered at medco.com, patients will have their complete medication history and drug plan at their fingertips and can discuss cost-saving options, drug safety or coverage issues with their medical professional, even before they leave the doctor's office.
