Integrated Pharmacy Systems and Pharmacies





Top FAQs for pharmacy systems

Use our Pharmacy Claims API. This API is a secure web-service that transmits a telecom-like data structure over vanilla HTTP(s).

Fixing PA is an opportunity to reduce a big source of administrative waste and suboptimal health outcomes:

  • PA is responsible for prescription abandonment rates between 40 and 70% (Hansen et al, JMCP, September 2009; Belazi, AJMC, June, 2013).
  • More than 200M claims are rejected each year for PA or PA-like requirements (CMM internal data)

When these problems are solved, you’ll be helping your pharmacy customers fill more prescriptions with less waste.

About 25 pharmacy systems have now completed the integration. The fastest so far was “two days of programmer time” and the average seems to be about 60 days.

We integrate electronically with plans that represent 80 percent of U.S. prescription volume and support the rest through our Universal Last Mile service. This service allows us to connect to any plan using their drug-specific paper PA forms while maintaining an electronic experience for the provider and pharmacy.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are interested in ensuring patient access for their medications. These organizations work with CoverMyMeds to reduce the chance that a prescription is abandoned after a claim rejection in the pharmacy, and to educate doctors and their staff about the opportunity to make their PA process more efficient.

Importantly, CoverMyMeds makes its service available for all drugs (not just those of sponsoring manufacturers), does not influence the prescribing decision of the provider and does not share any Protected Health Information (PHI) with the manufacturer.

Much like the way we work with payers, the involvement of pharmaceutical manufacturers helps make it possible for CoverMyMeds to offer our service for free to pharmacies, physicians and their staff, and to pay transaction fees to vendor participants.
