DrChrono EHR now provides physicians with the most accurate prescription price information at the point of care via the integration tool CoverMyMeds.
Note: In order to retrieve the pricing information the following information must be updated in the demographics tab of the patient's chart:
- full name,
- date of birth
Be advised, if that information is not added then prescribers may proceed with the eRx but they will get a warning saying that "pricing information is not available" due to the missing information.
1. Open a patient chart and click on the Send eRx tab in the left menu panel
2. Fill out the prescription information as usual. A box on the right side will appear titled Benefits.
3. This will give the price of the medication and copay information*.
*The pricing is based on the insurance information that is already saved in the patient chart. If there is no insurance information in the patient chart then it will give a cash-based price.
ALSO: If you don't get a price it's because pharmacies are tasked with updating their databases for prices. This is external and has nothing to do with DrChrono or CoverMyMeds.
