Medication adherence incentive offered to EPHC providers
Medication non-adherence increases mortality and costs the healthcare system billions of dollars per year. We are collaborating with physicians engaged in our Enhanced Personal Health Care (EPHC) programs to promote adherence by increasing 90-day supply prescriptions. Patients who receive 90-day supplies are more likely to be adherent, and our Medicare Advantage plans allow 90-day supplies to be filled for chronic medications at any retail pharmacy. Beginning in July, EPHC providers will receive a monthly report that identifies Medicare members eligible for a 90-day supply. Please evaluate that member list and discuss the benefits of a 90-day supply with your patients.
