PillPack (pillpack.com) is an online pharmacy that delivers prescriptions to your door.
They can transfer your existing Rx’s to their pharmacy, and it accepts most insurance plans. PillPack has comparable co-pays, without any extra costs. The company does not fill Schedule II prescriptions.
For regularly taken medications, the pills arrive in presorted packets, each labeled with information including medication and dose. Medications not taken on a daily basis come in prescription bottles. The company coordinates refills with your insurance company and doctor, and the cycle begins again, with next month’s meds arriving at your home.
The website has a lot more information, as well as a short video to better explain their services. The company is up and running in 40 states, including Illinois, and is expected to be in all 50 by 2015.
This system could be useful for people who want the convenience of their prescriptions delivered to their door, as well as having daily medications packaged together.
