(PRWEB) September 25, 2016
Veridicus Health (VRx) opened its own, state-of-the-art mail order pharmacy, VRx byMail, on July 1st of this year.
VRx byMail delivers maintenance medications straight to your door or office with deeper discounts than retail pharmacy outlets. The additional savings realized from mail order helps reduce both member and employer healthcare costs while giving members more convenient access to their medications.
VRx byMail is located in Salt Lake City, Utah and services members across the United States. VRx byMail’s integration with other Veridicus Health offerings, including VRx pharmacy benefit management (PBM) and clinical services, means members have one point of contact for all pharmacy inquiries.
Pharmacist In Charge (PIC), Dr. Justin Bryner, Pharm D. clarified a major difference on how VRx byMail will operate versus other mail order pharmacies: “Traditionally, mail order pharmacies have been viewed as lacking the personal touch that comes with your neighborhood pharmacy. We wanted to change that. It’s exciting to know that we give members the convenience of mail order delivery for maintenance medications while maintaining a neighborhood pharmacy feel.”
In speaking to the importance of VRx byMail, Veridicus Health President, Doug Burgoyne, said,
“By establishing an internal mail order pharmacy, our clients experience substantial savings opportunities and more control over their pharmacy benefits. At the same time, members can take advantage of the convenience and savings of mail order while still experiencing the same level of customer service they’ve come to expect from Veridicus Health.”
Many PBMs require mandatory mail order, taking control away from employers and members while bolstering profit margins. Veridicus Health and its PBM, VRx, maintain a more client-facing position of true transparency and plan control by allowing the employer to choose how to utilize mail order services in a way that serves their benefit goals.
Veridicus Health provides guidance and education around benefit designs and plan options, but clients always have the freedom to choose whether or not to participate in mail order, without any penalties or additional administrative fees.
Veridicus Health has also announced the opening of a specialty pharmacy in the coming months to help address the rising costs and impacts of specialty medications. Watch for more news from Veridicus Health in the coming weeks and months.
