As the annual Medicare Part D enrollment period gets underway, from now
through Dec. 7, 2017, Rite Aid pharmacies nationwide are providing
senior customers with free resources to help select the right
prescription drug plan (PDP) or update their existing coverage for 2018.
Patients and caregivers can use Rite Aid's dedicated Medicare Advisor
comparison tool available at www.riteaid.com/medicareadvisor
and in all Rite Aid pharmacies, to request the three lowest-cost
prescription drug plans based on current prescriptions filled at Rite Aid*.
“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,” said Jocelyn Konrad, Rite Aid executive vice
president of pharmacy. “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, and as
always, Rite Aid pharmacists are available to meet with customers to
review their Medicare Advisor reports and answer questions.”
Rite Aid participates in the networks of hundreds of other Medicare
prescription drug plans; see www.riteaid.com/medicareadvisor
