Blister packaging is a process in which prescriptions are heat sealed between a cardboard backing and a plastic bubble sheet. Each morning, noon, and night blister pack holds medication for 31 days, and can hold up to 8 pills per day. Each blister pack is labeled with day, date, time to be taken, and the medications contained in the package. Blister packaging benefits include: better compliance, convenience, and safety.
Blister packs may be set up on a monthly basis and picked up at the pharmacy, delivered locally, or mailed to the patient’s home.
Blister packaging is available for a monthly charge of $5 per medication with a maximum packaging fee of $15 per month.
