CAMP HILL, Pa. — Rite Aid is making its pharmacists available free of charge to seniors and their caregivers for personalized Medicare Part D consultations. Seniors can also use Rite Aid's dedicated Medicare Advisor comparison tools online at RiteAid.com/medicareadvisor.
With Medicare Part D open enrollment from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, Rite Aid anticipates that many seniors choosing a prescription drug program will find the complicated pricing process and varying coverage rates of the many provider plans confusing.
Medicare Part D plans are not all created alike, and finding the right Medicare Part D plan can be overwhelming," said Robert Thompson, Rite Aid’s EVP pharmacy. "But it's easier with a trusted adviser. Rite Aid pharmacists stand ready to help their patients find the plan in their area that is best for their prescription needs."
The Kaiser Family Foundation estimated that 19.7 million beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Part D prescription drug plans.
