Frequently Asked Questions
What services does Tria Health provide?
Tria Health offers chronic condition management services to improve health and reduce costs for employers and their members.
Tria Health provides these services with three main programs:
The Pharmacy Advocate Program is designed specifically for individuals who have chronic conditions and are taking multiple medications. Tria Health offers members the opportunity to talk one-on-one with a clinical pharmacist to review their current medications. During this telehealth session, the pharmacist will answer any questions or concerns the member may have regarding their all of their medications (prescription, over the counter, and vitamins/supplements). In addition, Tria Health’s pharmacists advocate for members by ensuring their medications are safe, effective and affordable.
The Rx Plan Protection Suite is for everyone on the health program, not just those with chronic conditions. Tria Health conducts a series of claims analyses to identify and target members who have opportunities for lower costing, but equally effective medications. Or members with clinical gaps in care or compliance issues to provide education to reduce costs and improve health of members.
The Tria Health Help Desk — 888.799.8742 provides members access to a clinical pharmacist for any quick medication questions (i.e. will this allergy medication interact with my prescription, can I store this medicine in the fridge, etc.).
What is Chronic Condition Management?
One-on-one telehealth consultations with a pharmacist available to patients with one or more chronic condition or those taking a high-cost specialty medication to ensure medications are safe, affordable and effective. Since chronic conditions are managed with medications and 50% of people don’t take medications as prescribed, having a consultation with a pharmacist, a medication expert, can significantly improve patient health and lower total health care costs. This confidential consultation takes place over the phone at a time that is convenient for the patient. If changes are recommended, Tria Health’s pharmacists will coordinate care between the pharmacy, patient and physician. Tria Health delivers patient centered care versus taking a disease specific approach with a focus on delivering and reporting health outcomes to ensure patients and employers obtain a return on their benefit investment.
