Our Pulmonary Care Value ProgramSM (PCV) helps members who are being treated for asthma or COPD. This program takes a holistic approach to patient health that pushes the boundaries of patient care while driving lower healthcare costs for payers. High-risk patients prescribed a controller inhaler will be offered remote monitoring devices to help optimize their medication use. When monitoring shows overuse with a rescue inhaler or nonadherence with a controller medication specialized clinicians at the Pulmonary Therapeutic Resource CenterSM (TRC) will reach out with individualized support. Our new patient engagement solution with Mango Health is a daily health platform that increases member engagement by gamifying health and rewarding patients for making healthy decisions leading to better health literacy and improved medication adherence. Finally, patients can obtain a 90-day supply of medication via the Express Scripts Pharmacy or one of the 10,000 pharmacies in the preferred quality network.

This program is part of Express Scripts SafeGuardRxSM suite of solutions that commit to ensuring patient access and care while protecting plan interests.
