How Does Medco Know What Drugs I take?

    I recently received a letter from Medco stating that I need to start using them in order to avoid higher prescription costs (I use CVS across the street) for my maintenance prescriptions.

    Underneath my name they had listed the medication that I currently am taking. My question is this.

    How did they get that information? Is there not any patient confidentiality when it comes to prescriptions?

    If you're filling your prescriptions using Medco....they have records of your prescriptions and hence, what types of medication those prescriptions were written for.

    Lol I had the same thought reading it. It's like asking how does UPS know how many hours I worked last week?

    Were you wearing your tin foil hat when you turned your prescriptions in at CVS? If not then there is your ansewer.

    I got the same letter. The old UPS plan used Medco. Under teamcare they are through cvs caremark. I wonder how much money they wasted mailing those letters out to former customers.
  8. What kind of perscriptions are you taking?

    All meds are online now on a database for doctors to use. Kind of scary, but this is the world we live in now.

    Why don't you tell us what prescriptions you're taking??

    They are already paying for your RX. They pay the claims 2 or 3 times from a retail pharmacy but then they start making you use mail order.

    Forget medco, How does the IRS know how much I make?? I smell a conspiracy.
  15. Do they make that in a 5000 milligram version?
