Full price transparency with member self-service

Appropriate Alternatives to High-Cost Drugs Matter Most

High-priced drugs are a problem for our healthcare system and the individuals dependent on those medications–a burden impacting consumers, employers and health plans alike. According to America’s Health Insurance Plans, the price of a single medicine can easily exceed an average American’s annual income.

As pharmaceutical costs continue to rise, greater transparency into drug prices is critical to finding more affordable alternatives to medications, including ways to help people adhere to treatment plans as prescribed by their physicians.

DrugCompare empowers health plans, pharmacies and others to:

  • Educate on therapeutic alternatives
  • Improve medication adherence (which can also have a positive impact on Star Ratings for Medicare plans)
  • Integrate ConnectureDRX data with your own applications
  • Increase retention as members save on medicines
  • Build your future

DrugCompare is available for Commercial and Medicare Plans.
