Ever wondered where those automated referral calls are coming from? When a referral is placed by a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary care manager, the AudioCARE system utilizes AudioCOMMUNICATOR software to call the patient with a reminder to book an appointment for this referral. This call is generated if the patient has not scheduled an appointment within 20 days of the referral or if the results from your civilian treatment have not been received by Kenner AHC. Additional automated reminders will be sent at 60, 65, and 75 days after the initial referral date. The automated message will leave basic information about which referral they are calling. If you have already attended an appointment for the referral in question or have an appointment scheduled, please contact the Kenner AHC Referral Management Center at 804-734-2273. We are able to update the system so that the automated calls are stopped. -Managed Care Division

Kenner Pharmacy quick access guide The Kenner Army Health Clinic Pharmacy is open Monday-Friday: 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., please note that a ticket is required for service, and the last ticket is issued at 4:30 p.m. The pharmacy is closed Saturday, Sunday, all Federal Holidays and three training holidays in FY 2014. Those days are as follows: November 29, December 24 and December 31. The pharmacy has a mandatory call-in reямБll process. The fully automated system is available 24-hours per day, every day, by calling (804) 734-9535. BeneямБciaries should call in reямБlls at least ямБve working days before they expect to run out of medications. The system will tell you if your reямБll request is OK, and when your reямБll will be ready for pick up. If there is a problem with your reямБll request, the system will give you an error message, such as, too early to ямБll, no reямБlls remaining, or prescription expired. Please call the Pharmacy at (804) 734-9137 any time you need assistance with your reямБll request. ReямБlls are dispensed from Window 7 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Numbered tickets are not needed to pick up reямБlls; only the patientтАЩs identiямБcation card. Go directly to Window 7 when you come to the Pharmacy to pick up reямБlls. The best time to come to the pharmacy to have prescriptions ямБlled is before 10:30 a.m. and after 1:30 p.m. Waiting times can vary considerably due to a variety of factors, including the number of patients with tickets in each category; the complexity of each patientтАЩs therapy; computer support and stafямБng. To speak to a pharmacist, call (804) 734-9137. -Pharmacy Staff
