Lower out-of-pocket costs. Better adherence. Improved health outcomes.

Actionable, real-time health information makes it easier for patients and their physicians to make the best possible care decisions. Transparency tools at the point of care provide prescribing physicians and patients access to information about which drugs are covered by a patient’s individual health plan, how much it will cost at the pharmacy counter or if a lower-cost alternative is available.

OptumRx’s PreCheck MyScript® delivers real-time, personalized prescription information, allowing physicians to easily identify which medications are covered and the associated patient cost for each option. PreCheck MyScript® also makes suggestions for other clinically appropriate, lower-cost alternatives and streamlines the approval process for drugs requiring prior authorization, allowing the doctor to request an approval directly through the application.

Delivering Lower Out-of-Pocket Costs

  • 277,000 providers have access to PreCheck MyScript® to help lower out-of-pocket patient costs and reduce surprises at the pharmacy.
  • 6 million patients have benefited from real-time access to personalized prescription costs and saved an average of $225 per prescription when prescribers selected the suggested lower-cost option.




Improving Health Outcomes

  • Medication adherence rates have significantly improved for three chronic conditions: diabetes (+4%), statins (+4%) and hypertension (+2%).
