MORRIS – Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers will continue its Medication Dispensing Program at a reduced rate of $20 a month until Dec. 31. The normal monthly subscription rate is $75 a month.
As part of the special offer, the one-time $48 installation fee also is being waived, according to a news release from the hospital.
Subscribers who enroll by Dec. 31 will be locked in at the $20 monthly rate for as long as they are enrolled in the program.
The medication dispenser is an automatic, personal pill dispensing unit that accurately dispenses medicine at designated times using an alert system.
Individuals who use the medication dispenser correctly are compliant with their medications 98.6 percent of the time, according to the news release.
The dispenser also works for non-pill medications, such as alerting diabetic subscribers it’s time to take insulin or check blood sugar. It also provides for an early dose if a subscriber is going to be away from home at the time a dose is administered.
The program is available to all people. Morris Hospital offers additional discounts for subscribers who may need financial assistance. For information, call 815-705-7251.
