Partnering with OTC Stores, a health plan is given 24/7 access to our 360-degree reporting portal, where you are able to track various metrics, including, but not limited to:
- Utilization and retention reports
- Transactions analytics
- Reports on most popular items
- Users metrics
- Returns reports

Customized product offering
We guarantee that only CMS-approved products are featured in the OTC catalog.
Our product catalog includes a great variety of branded and generic products that meet any demand of Medicare Advantage members, including personal protective equipment and preventative care products.
Partnering with OTC Stores, a health plan can make an informed decision about including a particular medication on the list based on our expert advisory supported by analytics.
* OTC Stores constantly adjusts the products selection to meet members’ needs.
Printed product catalog
The printed catalog design is built with the specifics of the targeted audience in mind—seniors making orders by phone, and branded under the health plan guidelines.
The plan defines the languages the catalog should be available in. OTC Stores may print and distribute the catalogs to the members under a separate agreement with the health plan.
Client-oriented call center
A unique customer experience giving a heart-warming feeling of being in a caring family. Our reps educate the members on the preventive care, consult on the products and the program itself, and also work with any other information calls upon request.
We have English- and Spanish-speaking customer service representatives, additional languages can be added upon request.
Our online store ensures a user friendly experience for seniors. For each health plan, it is possible to add a credit card payment option for purchases beyond the benefit allowance or CMS-approved items.
How it works
With each health plan, OTC Stores discusses targeted conditions to prevent and advises on the relevant product list, benefit allowance, frequency, rollover rules, and the required limitations.
We send a complete list of over-the-counter products with pricing, and the health plan chooses those to be included in the benefit.
The health plan provides us with an eligibility file. We set up a reporting portal, an online store, a call center and design a printed catalog.
OTC Stores distributes catalogs to the members in accordance with a health plan agreement.
OTC Stores processes e-mail, phone, and online orders and delivers them directly to the members in 2–3 business days * free of charge.
OTC Stores delivers analytics around member satisfaction, preferences, and general feedback, as well as consults on the latest industry trends to better shape the health plan offering.
* OTC Stores is able to set up its warehouses in close proximity to the member base in order to provide same-day delivery of critical items.
Partnering with OTC Stores, a health plan will get a cost-effective solution, designed to increase member satisfaction, build loyalty, and grow retention.
