Patients can now use their mobile phones to send a text message to receive coupons and discounts for prescription medications. Here's one example:
Effective November 1, 2010, PediatRx is offering a co-pay buy down program to insured and uninsured patients for the prescription drug Granisol. The program pays an out-of pocket cost of up to $200.00 and the patient is responsible for the remaining amount.
How it works
STEP 1: Patient learns of the offer via physician, pharmacy, website, word of mouth, blog, or carton-affixed promotional piece.
STEP 2: Patient opts into the mobile program by completing any of the following options:
* Texting “GRANI”, “GRAN”, OR “GRANISOL” to 55065
* Entering and submitting his/her mobile phone number on program website (http://www.121hm.com/offers/granisol/)
* Calling 1-877-601-0412 and following the voice prompts or instructions from the customer service representative
STEP 3: Patient receives a mobile coupon to bring to the pharmacy.
STEP 4: Patient picks up his/her Granisol prescription and saves up to $200 on the out of pocket costs.
STEP 5: Automatic prescription refill reminders are sent at set intervals during treatment. The refill process is managed for the patient’s convenience.
The Granisol Program also empowers patients with real-time, automated appeals processing when he/she encounters pharmacy POS obstacles such as Prior Authorization, STEP edits, and NDC blocks.
