VUCA Health Collaborates With Magellan Rx Management to Enhance Member Knowledge and Adherence

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2017) - VUCA Health today announced that Magellan Rx Management, the pharmacy benefit management division of Magellan Health, will be the first company to utilize its new Medication Management video library. VUCA Health, the industry leader in providing video content to inform patients about medications, has created a new library focused on educating consumers on important topics related to ensuring access and achieving optimal results from medications. Some topics covered by this new library include: the importance of medication adherence, the benefits of medication therapy management, the safe use of opioid medications and certain aspects of prescription drug coverage.
