Health information from Eckerd is just a phone call away

Patients can now get information on women’s health issues and diabetes over the phone from Pittsburgh-based pharmacy benefit manager, Eckerd Health Services (EHS).

EHS has launched EHS HealthLine, a service that allows callers to confidentially discuss a variety of health topics with trained pharmacists and technicians. Members can also request that information on those topics be sent to them, particularly if they feel uncomfortable talking about such issues over the telephone.

Information on women’s health covered by the program include osteoporosis, breast cancer, diet/weight loss, birth control, fertility/family planning, menopause/estrogen replacement, yeast infection, cholesterol/cardiovascular, vitamins/minerals, migraines, and sun protection.

EHS HealthLine can be reached by calling (866) 744-4848. The toll-free calls are manned from 9 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday and 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
