Reduce the risk of client abuse
The AccidentMeds Program is administered by our national pharmacy partner. Drug utilization review is applied to determine use of the program and includes screening for:
- Duplicate RX, age/sex, Standard dosage, Drug interactions, Similar medications, Flag controlled substance, Acute vs. Maintenance.
- Only generic medications considered standard for trauma or injury included in the formulary. Your clients cannot use this program to fill prescriptions unrelated to their accident. The pharmacist can request special authorization for non-covered medications as needed.
No unexpected surprises
Each card has an initial soft limit of $1000 to provide assurance that your client should not incur excessive pharmacy bills. You may increase this limit as needed.
Usual and Customary
In our experience, the typical prescription costs $75-175, subject to the drug, dosage and dispensing pharmacy, but some are considerably more expensive.
No Extra cost
No fees or interest charges. The lien signed is for the standard usual and customary medication charges.
Law Firm with Multiple Attorneys
Each AccidentMeds account is associated with an attorney. We suggest assigning a unique UserID and password for each licensed attorney using the program. However, if your firm is licensed under one primary attorney and all firm business activities are centralized through this attorney Tax ID, you may want to set up your account differently. Please call us and we will assist you.
Most attorneys are able to create a new account and use the program within minutes. Your new account may be created by the attorney or other staff member at the firm.
Law Firm with Multiple Locations
If the attorney has more than one business addresses and would like to create or master account that can be accessed from the other offices, call us. We will set up a central account.
