FAQs about Medication Management

A MedsCheck is a one on one consultation with you and a Pharmacy 777 Pharmacist in a private room. Your Pharmacist will go through each medication you are taking, answer any questions you may have, ensure you know the role of each, and will then offer advice on how and when to take your medications.

The Pharmacy 777 MedsCheck is free for Medicare Card holders who:

  • Are living at home, i.e. not in a care facility and
  • Have not had a Medicare funded medication check (such as a MedsCheck, Diabetes MedsCheck or Home Medicine Review) in the last 12 months AND at least one of the below:
  • Are taking five or more prescription medicines
  • Have experienced a recent significant medical event (for example a hospital admission for a new condition such as a heart attack or stroke, or admission to hospital for worsening of an existing condition)
  • Taking a medication with a high risk of side effects

A MedsCheck takes about 45 minutes and may be claimable through Medicare.

If you answer yes to one or more of these questions, there’s a good chance you will benefit from a MedsCheck:

  • Do you ever forget to take your medications?
  • Do you understand how your medication works?
  • Do you think you are experiencing side effects?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed by your medicines?
  • Would you like reassurance that you are taking your medicines at the right time?

When you have a lot of medications to take, we know it can get overwhelming. Dose administration aids can help ensure you don’t get medications mixed up or miss a dose.

Your medication is packed in secure blister packs with the dose, day and time clearly printed. Blister packs can specify exact times of the day. If you haven’t opened the blister compartment, you know you haven’t taken the dose – so there’s less confusion.

If you’re an eligible HBF health member, the personally prepared, safe and easy-to-use medication packing service is fully covered*. The service is only $5 a week for non-members.

Pharmacy 777 can keep your scripts on file at all times so you can manage them easily and order repeats efficiently. If you need just a standard repeat, simply call your local Pharmacy 777 pharmacy and they’ll have it ready by the time you come in store.

If you’ve got repeats on your script, or are housebound, you can call your local Pharmacy 777 pharmacy to organise your scripts to be delivered straight to your door.
