Definity Health Launches Pharmacy Benefit Option

October 21, 2003 ( - A new consumer-driven pharmacy benefit program has arisen out of a partnership between Definity Health, Medco Health Solutions and Evolution Benefits.

Under the plan, members of Definity Health will have the option to pay for pharmacy services out of a Personal Care Account (PCA), which is funded by their employers at a set amount each year. Any benefit dollars remaining in the PCA at year end then roll over for use by the member for future pharmacy needs, according to a news release.

Definity Health will also provide participant support through Web and phone-based tools and resources, including:

  • drug pricing information
  • a consumer medical drug library
  • a drug interaction assessment tool
  • resources to compare cost savings opportunities through generic substitution, mail order and pill splitting.

For its part, Medco Health will provide:

  • retail pharmacy network access
  • home delivery prescription services
  • customer care call center services with access to pharmacists.
