Our Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation we will:

  • Gain an understanding of the patient’s health conditions, healthcare providers seen, and what medications are currently being taken (both prescription and over the counter)

  • Identify issues that may be interfering with medications being taken as prescribed (for example, side effects, difficulty swallowing, forgetfulness, confusion)

  • Set up and maintain an automatic pill dispenser (if desired) with lights and alarm customized to patient’s medication schedule to reduce missed and duplicate doses

  • Assess any insurance/prescription cost issues
  • Explore more efficient/less expensive prescription delivery methods
  • Research manufacturer savings programs and patient advocacy foundation grants for eligible patients

  • Check vaccination history

Follow-Up Medication Reviews

During follow-up medication reviews, we will:

  • Review/update your medication list

  • Restock automatic pill dispenser and ensure refills are ordered to maintain continuous medication supply

  • Work with your prescriber and insurance company to find effective, lower-cost alternatives for high-copay prescriptions
  • Have your prescriptions delivered directly to your home or community if desired, often at a lower cost

  • Reduce confusion with your medications in the event you are returning after a hospitalization, nursing home, or rehab stay

  • Provide tips to help you manage side effects
  • Conduct an annual review of Medicare Part D prescription insurance during open enrollment period to help secure the most cost-effective coverage

  • Evaluate cost savings of preferred in-network versus standard in-network or out-of-network pharmacies

After your initial consultation and follow-up medication reviews, you will have access to our HIPAA-secure patient portal to view our recommendations to improve your medication management, as well as your current medication list.
