Manchester, N.H., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PillPack, the pharmacy that simplifies medication management, has launched its service in California. Customers can now receive a personalized roll of pre-sorted medications, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and vitamins, delivered in individual packs organized with the date and time to take the pills, replacing error-prone pillboxes and manual solutions.
"Folks who regularly take multiple medications are constantly driving to the pharmacy, sorting pillboxes, chasing down prescribers for renewals, and haggling with their insurance companies," says TJ Parker, PharmD, CEO of PillPack. "We started PillPack to eliminate this frustration and replace it with a simple end-to-end experience. We're excited to service customers in California, which is the largest market in terms of prescriptions filled, and therefore, customers who need a better solution."
PillPack is designed to serve people who take multiple medications. According to research from the Centers for Disease and Prevention (CDC), nearly 11 percent of Americans take more than five medications daily.
PillPack makes it easy to manage medications in three ways:
- Packaging: Rather than send medications in individual pill bottles, which customers must sort and organize, PillPack dispenses medications into multi-dose packs. These pre-sorted medications arrive packaged and labeled with the date and time each dose should be taken. Inhalers, creams, or as-needed medications can also be included in the shipment.
- Service: PillPack manages refills for customers by proactively coordinating with physicians and insurance providers. PillPack pharmacists are available to answer questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- Technology: PillPack offers customers an online dashboard to control medication lists, track shipments, keep tabs on billing, and see a calendar of important dates. Customers can also order vitamins and over-the-counter medications from their dashboard at any time.
Switching to PillPack takes about five minutes. New customers can sign up online at www.pillpack.com. PillPack accepts most prescription drug insurance plans, including most Medicare Part D plans. California is the 47th state in which PillPack is licensed.
PillPack is a full-service pharmacy that delivers a better, simpler experience through convenient packaging, modern technology, and personalized service. PillPack has earned Verified Internet Pharmacy Practices Sites® accreditation through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®).
