In addition, they are able to pick up their medications at the pharmacy, or have them delivered free totheir home.
We are proud to offer an innovative medication packaging program called Daily Dose Med Pack. Each pack contains 28 individual blisters, each of which contains a patient’s medication for a specific intake time (Morning-Noon-Evening-Bedtime) for a specific day. Each pack has a detailed description of thepatient’s name, the pharmacy name and information, and the name of the medication. It also has a description of what each medication looks like, how they are to be taken, what time of the day they are to be taken and the physician that ordered them.
This program helps patients be less confused on which medications to take when, and can provide a safer and easier way to take the right medications at the right time. When a patient enrolls, our
pharmacists will personally evaluate all of the patient’s medications and consult regularly with the physician(s) for medication changes and refills.
Medicap Pharmacy has become a recent provider of hospital-grade breast pumps, that may be covered by insurance for your patients. Our staff will work with the patient’s insurance company to verify coverage, reimbursement and we will notify them when complete.
