Frequently Asked Questions
+ Should I Participate?
If you are taking multiple medications, a specialty medication, or have a chronic condition, PharmD Live can help. Medicine can help keep you healthy and active, but if not taken properly, it can have a serious impact on your health and well-being.
+ What Should I Expect During My Pharmacist’s Home Visit?
Confidential appointments run 20 to 60 minutes depending on the number of medications you are taking. During the visit, your PharmD Live pharmacist will inspect your medication profile and review all prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs (OTCs), herbal supplements, and samples for appropriateness of therapy. PharmD Live pharmacists will discuss therapy- and medication-related issues or problems, and answer any questions you have about your medications and care plan.
Upon completion of the visit, you will receive a medication list and personalized care plans detailing the just-completed visit with the pharmacist. Plans include times and dates for follow-up visits. Your PharmD Live pharmacist will also update your doctor, coordinate further care, and relay medication or plan recommendations.
+ How Do I Enroll?
It’s easy. Complete the form on the contact page, and a PharmD Live pharmacist will contact you within 2 hours or at your convenience.
If you’re not ready to enroll, but would like to speak with a PharmD Live pharmacist, request an appointment.
+ When Do I Meet With my PharmD Live Pharmacist?
Not all patients require home visits. You can talk to your PharmD Live pharmacist any time issues or questions arise. Follow-up visits, if needed, will occur at the dates and times set up during the initial visit. Follow-up visits tend to be shorter in length.
+ Will I Have to Change Medications?
The PharmD Live clinical pharmacist may make observations and recommendations to your physicians about the effectiveness of your current medicines. However, all recommendations for changes in medications will be discussed with you before being sent to your physician for final approval. Ultimately, our programs are designed to ensure that you are getting the best results from your medications.
PharmD Live is an independent company and does not receive funding or influences of any kind from drug manufacturers. We will never force you to change your current care plan. We’re here to offer our skills, resources, guidance, and assistance to help you achieve the best results possible.
