Rx Lists - AEP


As to why - for the client that emails "nothing has changed" I can then say, "ok, we have these 4 on file - just confirm" rather than them re-sending.

I don't mind asking them to redo the list yearly. But just thought this might be easier for the inevitable "Scott can you check on my plan it's all the same" emails.

ie "Ok, confirm list?" rather than "ok, redo list."

But I think the safest is to just ask for fresh list. I use a hushmail form that's HIPAA compliant to gather Rx's.

"Nope! That gets into the rules out of DC. I need a new list each year"
Well the toothpaste is already out of that tube!

Does anyone know if it's HIPAA compliant?

No but a work around is to have them give the thumbs up to "ok" it.

Look at what Walgreens does - they text Rx refill reminders, Rx ready reminders, etc. They just have people OK their disclaimer.
