BUSINESS DESCRIPTION

Consumer Services.  The Site offers to both EPIC pharmacy affiliates (“Members”) and non-members alike a wide array of information relating to the pharmaceutical industry and general health matters.  You will also be able to search for EPIC pharmacies through our EPIC Pharmacy Locator and obtain information about various store promotions.

Member Services.  Registration is required to access the Member Services section of the Site.  In the Member Services section, we provide electronic access to our third party claims reconciliation database. Members will be able to access third-party payment information in various ways, including, by dates paid, insurance companies, date ranges and Rx numbers.  The Reconciliation report provides information about claims that are outstanding for 45 days or more, and those claims that have not been paid in the amount promised by the insurance companies.

EPIC also makes available to its Members various informational catalogues such as the EPIC Pharmacies Catalog which contains information about products and associated discounts offered by EPIC vendors.  The EPIC Pharmacy Network group of catalogs includes informational catalogues on claim submission guidelines, dispense-as-written codes and third-party, on-hand information.
