RxEOB Introduces New Web-based Tool

Author:

RxEOB has launched a new version of MyDrug-Benefit. The company, a provider of consumer-directed pharmacy benefit software, said that the latest version will further allow consumers to control their prescription drug benefit costs. MyDrug-Benefit lets members view their prescription history, compare prices of cost-effective medication alternatives, verify prescriptions, and research drug information via a Web-based interface.

The newest version provides:

"Unfortunately, many software programs merely provide information about the overall cost of a prescription drug without customizing the information to reflect what an individual will pay based on his or her insurer's prescription drug benefit. Armed with this customized information, health plan members frequently migrate to less expensive, but equally effective medications with lower copayments, generating sufficient savings for themselves and their health plans," explained Registered Pharmacist Robert Oscar, president of RxEOB.
