New Online Tool Allows Members to Price Check Medications

Posted by on Feb 5, 2016 in Affordability

Sutter Health Plus members can make informed prescription choices and compare drug prices with a new Drug Price Check tool available through MedImpact.

Available on the MedImpact custom portal for Sutter Health Plus members, this tool provides helpful information, including:

  • Formulary tier status (related to copay level)
  • Price quotes for retail, mail order and specialty pharmacies (if applicable)
  • Generic alternatives
  • “Rules,” such as prior authorization, step therapy, and quantity requirements

Members are encouraged to register for a MedImpact account for personalized pharmacy benefit information. Additionally, prospective members can visit the site and select a guest member type (i.e., individual and family, small group, large group, and high-deductible), which will lead to a pop-up box with the Drug Price Check tool link.
