Harris Health System’s Meds-to-Beds Program is a bedside service designed with your health in mind. It is a program in which the pharmacist delivers discharge medications to your bedside before you leave the hospital. There is no need for you, a friend or a family member to stop at the pharmacy on the way home because we will deliver them to you.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I enroll in the Meds-to-Beds Program?A: If you are admitted into the hospital you are automatically enrolled into the program. You may also choose to opt out. A transition specialist will meet with you and provide you with more information during your stay and at discharge.
Q: What if I do not have my insurance information during this visit?A: With your permission, we will call your current pharmacy and ask for your insurance information. Your family member can also bring it from your home.
Q: Can my discharge medications be added to my hospital bill?A: Meds-to-Beds prescription filling is an outpatient pharmacy service and cannot be added to your hospital bill. Co-pays are collected when your Meds-to-Beds service is provided.
Q: What type of payments can I use for this program?A: Harris Health’s Meds-to-Beds Program accepts personal checks, credit and debit cards. Cash is not accepted at this time.
Q: How will I be informed when my prescriptions are ready?A: Once your prescriptions are ready, a pharmacist will deliver your medications to your bedside, provide medication education and answer any questions you may have about your medicine.
Q: How can I obtain my future medications?A: Prescriptions can be mailed directly to you through our free Medication Home Delivery Program or sent to your preferred pharmacy location. To make it easy for you, use MyHealth to order your refill and pay your copay, if necessary. Our transition specialist will enroll you and show you how to use MyHealth before you leave the hospital.
