Doctors in the United States write more than 4-billion prescriptions each and every year. The process is common but that doesn’t mean it’s simple.

PreCheck MyScript from UnitedHealthcare helps make it easier – changing the way physicians prescribe medicine. Our point of care integrated solution takes the guesswork out of the process.

It helps physicians save time, it helps their patients save money and overall, it’s creating a better health care experience.

Here’s how it works:

The physician accesses the patient’s electronic health record in their Practice Management System/EMR and enters the preferred pharmacy and prescription drug information.

PreCheck MyScript will automatically run a trial claim, displaying within the physician workflow the patient coverage, drug cost and alternatives. 

The experience is seamless.

In just seconds, the physician can see if a patient’s medical plan covers the medication and the exact out-of-pocket cost.

PreCheck MyScript also alerts the physician if a medication requires a prior authorization. The physician can submit the approval online while ordering the prescription – often receiving an automated approval.

Physicians and their administrative staff no longer need to spend hours on the phone or fax to get a prior authorization. Instead, that valuable time is spent caring for patients – and those patients get their much-needed medication faster.

PreCheck MyScript also suggests alternatives for less expensive medications or ones that do not require prior authorization. This gives the physician a chance to discuss all options with the patient.

PreCheck MyScript from UnitedHealthcare - taking the guesswork out of filling prescriptions.

Shouldn’t all health care be simple?
