YourTown Health is pleased to announce that it is now offering free home delivery of prescription medicine. Medicare and privately insured patients are encouraged to take advantage of our new program that brings the pharmacy to you.
To ensure you get the best care, YTH is partnering with Equiscript, a Charleston-based company that specializes in pharmacy services. Equiscript employs a team of trained patient care advocates who take the time to get to know your needs. Your advocate will order your prescription from the pharmacy, answer any questions and assist with insurance information. They’ll also call you when it’s time for a refill so you never run out. They can even schedule a doctor visit, if necessary.
It’s estimated that half of Americans have an ongoing health concern that requires them to take prescription drugs. Only half of them take their medications as prescribed. Studies show that patients whose medications are delivered to them at home are more likely to stick to their treatment. That means their level of care is improved and they make less trips to the emergency room.
“There are a number of reasons why patients may not get their prescribed medicine. Someone may be unable to find transportation or be worried about the cost. Our home delivery service eliminates any barriers.”
“Continuity of care is so important,” said Jon W. Wollenzien, Jr., YTH Chief Executive Officer. “There are a number of reasons why patients may not get their prescribed medicine. Someone may be unable to find transportation or be worried about the cost. Our home delivery service eliminates any barriers. For patients being treated for diabetes, high blood cholesterol or hypertension, that can be a lifesaver. It’s essential that they always have access to their prescription drugs.”
An enrollment representative from Equiscript may be calling you soon to ask if you’re interested in signing up for our home delivery pharmacy program. It’s free of charge for YTH Medicare and privately insured patients. We hope you’ll find this service saves you time and makes getting prescriptions more convenient.
