Do you accept my prescription benefits coverage?
In most cases, YES. We are able to process prescription claims with most major insurance plans including Medicare Parts B and D . Keep in mind that some plans require the use of a mail order pharmacy to fill prescriptions.
How long will it take to receive my medication?
We will fill your prescription as quickly as possible following the verification of prescription benefit coverage and alternative co-payment assistance resources. Often your prescription may be available immediately. If not, we will call you to arrange a time for you to pick up your prescription.
Will it cost me more to fill my prescription here than at a retail pharmacy?
No. In fact, there are times where it may cost less to fill your prescription at our practice. Retail pharmacies (Walgreens, CVS, etc.) often require immediate payment and sometimes are not able to verify all coverage options before dispensing. Since we are able to do this before dispensing your medication, it may cost you less.
Why are you offering in-office dispensing?
We want to provide convenience and total care to the patients receiving treatment in our practice. It ensures you get started right away with your treatment and that we follow your treatment plan as closely as possible. We are also able to better monitor your side effects to make sure your medications are working as they should be.
Do I have to fill my prescription at your office?
No. You are welcome to fill your prescription at any pharmacy. If you decide to fill your prescription at another pharmacy, your decision will in no way affect the medical care you receive from our healthcare professionals.
