iA Financial Group solidifies its position as a leader in drug cost management by adding a pharmacy locator feature to its WebRx online drug tool

QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 5, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - iA Financial Group (Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc.) is proud to announce the addition of a pharmacy locator feature to its WebRx online drug tool.

In addition to having access to all the benefits of the original version of WebRx, such as coverage verification, reimbursement estimates and cost-saving tips for the purchase of medication, our plan members are now able to easily locate pharmacies and compare the prices for the drugs they need*. They simply need to choose an address as a starting point, select a kilometer search range and WebRx does the rest!

This new WebRx feature is presently available in My Client Space, our secure website and will soon be available in our iA Mobile app.

According to Jacques Parent, Senior Vice-President, Actuarial and Underwriting, Group Insurance at iA Financial Group, ''The addition of the pharmacy locator to our WebRx online tool certainly solidifies our position as an industry leader in terms of drug cost management. We are proud to present this new feature to our clients and plan members as it will help improve the buying process for prescription medication at the best price available and, ultimately, have a positive impact on the cost of group insurance plans.''

* All WebRx users outside the province of Quebec are able to see the price of the drug they are searching for at each pharmacy found. In Quebec, WebRx does not provide prices per pharmacies. Instead, it provides an average provincial price for each drug found.

Note: To access WebRx, drug coverage with Industrial Alliance with a pay direct or deferred drug card is required.
