    The Premera mobile app includes a Medicine Cabinet feature to help your clients keep track of all their medications, the prescribing doctor, and when their prescriptions were last filled.

    Encourage your group clients to tell their employees about these great resources. We make it easy for them to tell their employees with B’link—a library of employee communications. B’link’s ready-to-share flyer, email, or copy-and-paste messaging about the mobile app allows employers to share this information in just a few clicks.
