Making sure that medications have their full impact

For people with multiple chronic conditions, taking medications as prescribed is usually the largest single determinant in maintaining good health. Carefree's pharmacy services are designed to ensure that the right medications are taken at the right time.

Carefree's mail order pharmacy simplifies the process of helping manage a complex medication regimen. We get each prescription from all of your senior's doctors and create customized, individual packets that contain only the medications that are to be taken at a specific time each day. Each month we send a new set of dose-time packages. No more emergency runs to the pharmacy to fill a forgotten prescription or spending Sunday evenings filling pillboxes.

Our pharmacists are available for consultation, and they work to substitute less costly generic drugs when available and see if there are opportunities to remove drugs. Because our pharmacists work exclusively with seniors with multiple chronic conditions, we have a deep understanding of what typically works best for your loved one's specific set of conditions.

Your nurse-coach reviews medications with your senior to ensure that the drugs are being taken properly. If side effects are a problem, your coach can work with the pharmacist to identify possible alternatives and recommend these to the prescribing physician.

Carefree's pharmacy services make certain that seniors get the full benefits from their medications.

Covered by Medicare

Better health outcomes and improved safety

Medicare covers these additional services for seniors with multiple chronic conditions because they have been proven to improve health outcomes. Many caregivers are unaware that these services are available and paid for by Medicare.

Although Medicare covers the majority of the costs for your Carefree coach, the senior is responsible for a small copay, usually less than $10.00 per month. In some instances the copays are covered by Medicare Advantage or a supplemental insurance plan. If you have questions about costs, don't hesitate to call, we'll make sure there are no surprises.

Medicare is willing to pay for these services because the regular interactions with a coach and monitoring have been proven to improve health and reduce hospital and emergency room visits.

Better, more informed care means better health and improved outcomes.

When seniors regularly follow a customized care plan the odds that they will experience a health emergency are minimized. Actively working on healthy initiatives with a coach maintains health.

As the coach tracks your loved one's important health indicators, it becomes easier to identify problems early. That early identification allows doctors to get involved and often avoid a trip to the hospital.

Show More

In those situations where hospitalization is required, the active measures and regular monitoring means that conditions are likely to be less severe. Our coach provides the latest information to the hospital and doctors enabling better decisions that shorten the hospital stay. Post discharge, frequent coach interaction can also reduce the chances of readmission.

When seniors stay out of the hospital, their quality of life is improved and they can continue to age in place safely.

True Cost of Healthcare

Better health at lower cost

True Cost of Healthcare

Better health at lower cost

Better and more frequent care avoids extremely expensive trips to the hospital.

Even though much of the cost of a hospital stay is picked up by Medicare, out-of-pocket costs could be thousands of dollars. If your senior is admitted to the hospital on an observational basis, and then discharged to a care facility, those costs can rise to almost $5,000.

When you use Carefree's Medicare covered services, you are required to make a monthly copay, although supplemental insurance may cover it. In most instances, this payment is less than $10 per month or about $100 per year, less than a tenth of the cost of the least expensive hospital admission.

Show More

After most hospital stays, your senior's overall health never quite recovers to the point it was before the event that caused the hospital stay. Often what happens is a recurring cycle of declining health and hospital stays until the hospital discharge is to a long term care facility which the senior never leaves.

For this reason, even with the added copays, healthcare designed to provide better care, avoid hospital stays and age in place as long as possible is the least costly path.

Improved care leads to improved quality of life

Coordinated healthcare allows the entire care team to work towards the same goals, resulting in better health.

When the latest health conditions are regularly communicated with all members of the care team, each member is more fully informed and makes better decisions, which leads to more positive health outcomes.

Finally, when a health coach has the responsibility of keeping all members of the care team informed, including you, families get a much better understanding of the full health picture for their loved one.

Coordinated care and communication between all the parties improves care providing your senior with the best quality of life possible.
