SUBJECT: University of Colorado Health and Welfare Trust launches RxConsult
University of Colorado Health and Welfare plan members (currently UA Net,
Lumenos, HMO Colorado, Medicare supplement and University Kaiser) are eligible
for a new program called RxConsult. Rx Consult enables you to meet for free
with a clinical pharmacist on the Anschutz Medical, Boulder, Colorado Springs
and downtown Denver campuses and at other sites convenient to you to review all
of your medications and get answers to any of your medication-related
questions. These clinical pharmacists are also faculty members at the Skaggs
School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
During your confidential medication consultation, you will gain a better
understanding of how your medications work together, and how you can get
optimal benefit from your prescribed therapies. The clinical pharmacist can
work with you and your primary care provider to:
-- Ensure prescribed medications are effective and appropriately monitored
-- Ensure that drug therapy is safe, does not cause unwanted side effects or
drug interactions, particularly with other over-the-counter medications or
supplements, and is well tolerated
-- Assist with lower cost medication alternatives based on their formulary
-- If needed, assist with adherence issues by helping identify and manage
barriers to medication use
Who needs a medication consultation?
Medication consultations can be useful to anyone who takes medications
currently or will be taking medications in the near future. However, a
medication consultation is especially important for people who:
-- Take multiple medications
-- Receive medication prescriptions from multiple healthcare providers
-- Have multiple health conditions or complicated conditions
-- Have difficulty affording or remembering to take their medications
How can I get more information and schedule an appointment?
Appointments will be available on site on the Boulder campus on Thursday, April
19th, Tuesday, April 24th, Thursday, May 10th, and Thursday, May 24th.
