UHC announces new retail pharmacy network and member engagement program

Beginning January 1, all UnitedHealthcare (UHC) customers will automatically be part of a new retail pharmacy network. UHC projects any member disruption due to a pharmacy not participating in the network to be less than 1% and will not occur until March 1, 2011. Affected members will be sent a letter on February 1, notifying them that their current pharmacy is no longer a network pharmacy and providing a list of three network pharmacies in their area.

UHC is also introducing their At-the-Pharmacy engagement program, which encourages pharmacists to speak with members about lower-cost medications. UHC will provide pharmacies with benefit-specific information on lower-cost options for 22 targeted medications, as well as how much the member can save.
