September 2018: Enhanced Prescription Functionality Now Available in Allscripts

UnitedHealthcare’s PreCheck MyScript functionality on Link is now integrated in the Allscripts e-prescribing system. 

How It Works

The solution allows you to check medication coverage, patient cost share, prior authorization requirements and more — without leaving your existing workflow. Adding a medication to your patient’s electronic health record will automatically trigger a real-time benefit check and provide key information from UnitedHealthcare and Optum Rx, which may assist in selecting the best medication for a patient’s condition and plan requirements. This all takes place before the patient leaves your office:

  • If the medication is not covered, non-preferred or if prior authorization is needed, the system will indicate that right away.
  • The patient’s cost share will be displayed along with lower cost alternatives for your consideration.
  • When prior authorization is required, you’ll be prompted to provide the needed information and the e-prescription will be pended until an approval decision is made.
  • If the medication is preferred and doesn’t require prior authorization or has no alternatives, the e-prescription is routed to the pharmacy. 

If you have any questions, contact your Allscripts representative.
