Frequently asked questions:
Q: Why is my copay different this time?
A: Your insurance company determines what your copay is each time you fill a prescription. Copays can change throughout the year depending on if you have a deductible to meet, if you are in the donut hole, or if you are in the catastrophic phase. We are always happy to help clarify any changes in your copays!
Q: Do you accept all types of insurance?
A: We accept almost all types of insurance. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions about using your insurance card at our pharmacy.
Q: How can I get all my medicine to run out at the same time so I only have to come to the pharmacy once a month?
