Camp Hill, Pa., 2016-Oct-23 — /EPR Retail News/ — Now (Oct. 21, 2016) through Dec. 7, 2016, 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 during the annual Medicare Part D enrollment period. Customers can use Rite Aid’s dedicated Medicare Advisor comparison tool to request the three lowest-cost prescription drug plans based on current prescriptions filled at Rite Aid*. Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor is available at any Rite Aid pharmacy and can also be accessed online at www.riteaid.com/medicareadvisor.

“Choosing the best prescription drug plan to fit a customer’s personalized needs is an important healthcare decision and can be overwhelming,” said Jocelyn Konrad, executive vice president of pharmacy for Rite Aid. “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.”

With Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor, customers can compare the estimated annual costs of various plans, including monthly premiums, brand and generic co-pays and drugs covered. Customers can then discuss their Medicare Advisor report with their Rite Aid pharmacists, who are available to answer questions they may have.
