5 Reasons to Switch to Home Delivery
For patients with chronic conditions, having medications delivered directly to their home is the best option to ensure adherence to therapy. Here are a few reasons to make the switch to home delivery for these maintenance medications while continuing to use retail pharmacies for acute needs.
Patients who make the switch to home delivery realize a number of benefits, including:
- Safety – Express Scripts’ patented automated pharmacy dispenses hundreds of millions of prescriptions each year with greater than 99.99999% accuracy, then packages and sends them so they stay safe until they arrive, no matter the weather.
- Convenience – Medications are delivered directly and safely to a patient’s home, bypassing the need to visit a retail pharmacy.
- Access – Patients can speak to Express Scripts’ expert pharmacists 24/7 from the privacy of their own home.
- Better health – Patients who receive maintenance medications through home delivery are up to 40% more likely to take them as prescribed for conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
All of these benefits give patients peace of mind that they are receiving the best care and support, when and where they need it.
More affordable medications
Taking advantage of home delivery doesn’t just make patients healthier, it’s good for their wallet. Express Scripts estimates that patients save an average of nearly 30% on copays with home delivery. However, we understand that patients have different needs and support their ability to choose the refill method that works best for them, whether that is home delivery or picking up a refill at a local pharmacy.
With more than 30 years of experience delivering medications directly to patient’s homes, Express Scripts is proud to help patients get their medications at the lowest possible cost. And, if they ever need anything, they can reach an Express Scripts pharmacist any time, day or night, any day of the week.
