According to BusinessWire: Millions of Humana members will now find it easier to compare the cost of prescription drugs and explore available alternatives. Humana (NYSE: HUM) has updated its industry-leading MyHumana Mobile app and mobile website to include prescription drug pricing. The Drug Pricing feature allows members to quickly determine the cost of their prescriptions, identify lower-cost alternatives and compare the costs of the prescription from multiple pharmacies and Humana’s RightSourceSM home delivery pharmacy and RightSource SpecialtySM pharmacy. The new drug-pricing feature bolsters Humana’s “Appy Award”-winning technology which improves members’ health and well-being and arms them with powerful tools at the point of service.

“Traditionally we have sent members messages after they purchased a prescription when a lower-cost alternative was available. Now, this price information can be looked up by members while at the doctor so that a lower-cost alternative can be considered before the prescription is written or to help the member find the best price for the prescription,” said William Fleming, vice president, Humana Pharmacy SolutionsSM (HPS). HPS, a division of Humana Inc., manages traditional pharmacy benefits with member-focused strategies to yield savings in pharmacy and total health expense. “This is just the first of what will be numerous deployments of functionality and transactions regarding prescriptions in the mobile space,” Fleming said.

The app is available on iTunes and Android.
