Pharmacies now have the ability to wirelessly collect patient copays through Micro Merchant Systems’ newly released PrimeRxPAY functionality. This provides a solution for pharmacies looking for a way to offer contactless transactions, with the added benefit of seamless records management.
“PrimeRxPAY was originally intended to provide patients with a convenient, flexible option for completing their copay transactions,” says Akbar Merchant, the company’s president and owner. “Instead, given the critical circumstances in which pharmacies now operate, PrimeRxPAY will serve as essential tool in allowing pharmacies to provide a contactless payment experience.”
The way it works is that a patient receives an automatic text or email notification that a copay is due. The message includes a URL link that directs the patient to a secure payment portal. Once the patient’s credit card information is submitted, the copay is processed through an online payment processing service. Once this is completed, funds are automatically deposited in the pharmacy account and a patient receipt is generated. PrimeRxPAY is available to PrimeRx users at no charge.
