Why should I use ScalaMed? Isn't this more work for me?
Recommended by doctors and pharmacies, ScalaMed is the simplest, safest, and smartest way to manage your medication. And it’s always free.
You are now in control of your own prescriptions.
Right now, you're out of the loop, waiting for your doctor to call in your prescriptions to a pharmacy that might be closed, out of stock, out of network, too expensive, or not near you. With ScalaMed your real, actual prescriptions come directly from your doctor right to your phone. You have flexibility portability, and can send each prescription and refill to any pharmacy in the US in less than ten seconds.
Unlike the old way of doing things, you get a permanent record of all your medicines that you can carry with you and share with whoever you need. You can access information to learn about side effects and how to take your medication safely. You'll also receive refill reminders and allergy warnings. With ScalaMed, you'll never forget the name or dosage of your medications.
ScalaMed puts you in the center of your health.
How does ScalaMed work?
For some providers, ScalaMed is a medication wallet - enabling you to carry and view the record of which prescriptions were prescribed, and instructions on how to use them safely and effectively.
For other instances of ScalaMed, ScalaMed is quite similar to a paper prescription but a whole lot easier and more secure. Your doctor sends your prescriptions directly to your ScalaMed app on your phone. Then, just like a paper prescription, you can send them to any pharmacy right from your phone, without having to drop them off or deal with long lines. Just press "Fill" and your pharmacy will have your prescription and you'll have a record that you'll own forever.
Is this my real prescription or just a copy?
This is the real deal (when you see the "View/Fill" option under your prescription). We believe that you should own your prescriptions.
That's why we send your real, actual prescription straight to your phone. You send your real prescription directly to any pharmacy of your choice. We use the latest technology to make your prescriptions secure and unchangeable.
Does it cost anything to use ScalaMed?
Zero. ScalaMed is completely free for users. To keep ScalaMed free for you, we charge pharmacies to advertise on ScalaMed and allow drug manufacturers to offer you brochures on the medicines you've been prescribed. We don't sell your data to these advertisers, either.
Can I use ScalaMed at any pharmacy?
You can send your prescription to any pharmacy in the US, including specialty pharmacies, online or mail-order pharmacies required by your insurance, or even the local pharmacy down the street.
ScalaMed also works with specialty pharmacies, Medicare Part D, insurance, and cash-pay pharmacies.
If you can't find your pharmacy - please let us know.

Can I use ScalaMed for every prescription I have?
We're working on exciting new features to help you manage ALL of your medications, no matter who prescribes them. But in general, your doctor must send your prescriptions to ScalaMed pharmacy for you to use this. More updates soon!
Can I use this for every medication?
You can use ScalaMed for all your medications, except one class of drugs called 'Schedule II". These drugs include strong pain relievers like hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), methadone (Dolophine®), meperidine (Demerol®), oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet®), and fentanyl (Sublimaze®, Duragesic®). Strict DEA rules mean that your doctor has to give you a paper prescription, or a special prescription sent to the pharmacy for these medications.
Why did you create ScalaMed?
We believe in making medication management a whole lot easier and in helping you be healthy. That's it.
The word scala means "a sequence or order" in Latin. We believe in changing the order of who is important in health - and putting you first.
How does ScalaMed make money?
To keep ScalaMed free for you, we charge your provider or your insurer who pays so that they can support you and help you manage your medicines effectively. We don't sell your data or do anything that is not in your best interest.
There are no hidden charges for you.
Sounds too good to be true...what's the catch?
Sounds too good to be true - we get it. But really, there's no catch or fine print!
We believe in making medication management a whole lot easier and in helping you be healthy. There is no catch here. We keep your data safe and secure and we never sell any data that identifies you.
We aim to make healthcare easier and more affordable. When you get and stay healthy, everyone wins - you and your wallet, your insurance company, and your doctor. That's our only goal.
