Medicare Part D Open Enrollment

Posted on October 23, 2017 14:46 pm CDT

To all our friends and family who have a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan, this information is for you! Did you know Medicare Part D plans change yearly? The copays on your medications, the list of medications covered, the plan premiums and deductibles all change each year! And since these plans change yearly, that means your costs do not stay the same. And this is why we highly encourage you to review available Medicare Part D plans each year during open enrollment, which is now!

Open Enrollment began October 15th and goes through December 7th.  We recommend you call our pharmacy during this enrollment period to discuss a free Med D evaluation.  We will go through your current prescriptions and give you a list of available Medicare Part D plans for 2018 and the costs of each plan, including premiums, deductible, copay information and more. 

Don't pay more for your prescriptions in 2018! Let us assist you in finding the best plan based on your prescriptions!

Call the pharmacy if you have any questions or concerns.

"While attending pharmacy school, I knew that someday I wanted to open my own pharmacy. I envisioned a pharmacy where I could talk to people one-on-one. By listening and learning about their health concerns, I could use what I had learned to help them. I graduated from pharmacy school in 1978 and went to work for a chain store, then a hospital, then an independent pharmacy, all of which gave me valuable experience. But I still had the desire to open my own store.

In 1984, at age 30, my dream of owning my own pharmacy came true. With the help of a friend who was willing to take a chance on me and loan me the start-up money, The Medicine Shoppe opened its doors and filled its first prescription on July 9th, 1984. My goal was to serve my patients and customers to the best of my ability. Over the years, I have carefully built a staff that shares those same goals.

Even though our name has changed, 27 years later the entire staff of Medicine Store Pharmacy still has that same goal in mind. We are here to serve you.

Thank you to all of my loyal customers: past, present and future. "Jerry Popek, Owner, Medicine Store Pharmacy
