Rite Aid said Friday that through Dec. 7, its nearly 4,600 pharmacies are providing free resources to help seniors choose a Part D prescription drug plan or update their current coverage for the 2017 plan year.
Customers can use Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor comparison tool to review the three lowest-cost Part D plans based on current prescriptions filled at Rite Aid. Medicare Advisor is available at any Rite Aid pharmacy and can also be accessed online at RiteAid.com/medicareadvisor.
Via the Medicare Advisor tool, customers can compare the estimated annual costs of various plans, including monthly premiums, brand-name and generic drug co-payments, and medications covered. Rite Aid said it’s in the pharmacy networks of hundreds of other Medicare prescription drug plans.
The drug chain noted that customers also can discuss their Medicare Advisor report with Rite Aid pharmacists, who are on hand to answer questions.
“Choosing the best prescription drug plan to fit a customer’s personalized needs is an important healthcare decision and can be overwhelming,” Jocelyn Konrad, executive vice president of pharmacy at Rite Aid, said in a statement. “Rite Aid pharmacists stand ready to answer questions and encourage patients to take advantage of the free resources we offer, including Medicare Advisor, as they work towards selecting the drug plan that best fits their prescription needs.”
