CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid Corp. has begun offering assistance to seniors during the Medicare Part D open enrollment period.

Through Dec. 7, when open enrollment ends, Rite Aid’s more than 4,500 pharmacies nationwide will provide senior customers with free resources to help select the right prescription drug plan (PDP) or update their current Part D coverage for 2018.

“Prescription medications play a critical role when it comes to living and staying well, so it’s important that patients review their prescription drug plan each year and choose the one that best fits their individual needs,” Jocelyn Konrad, executive vice president of pharmacy at Rite Aid, said in a statement.

Patients and caregivers can use the Rite Aid Medicare Advisor comparison tool — available in all Rite Aid pharmacies as well as at — to request the three lowest-cost prescription drug plans based on current prescriptions filled at the drug chain.

“Using Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor tool, patients can compare the estimated annual costs of various plans, including monthly premiums, brand and generic co-pays and drugs covered,” Konrad added. “And, as always, Rite Aid pharmacists are available to meet with customers to review their Medicare Advisor reports and answer questions.”
