Camp Hill, Penn. — Rite Aid will assist customers with prescription insurance coverage issues related to the Affordable Care Act which went into effect Jan. 1, 2014 and help ensure they are able to access prescription medications under their new plans. Rite Aid joins other pharmacy retailers including Wal-Mart and Walgreens in offering prescription assistance.
In circumstances where customers have enrolled but have not received their plan identification number from their insurance provider, Rite Aid pharmacy staff will work with these customers to verify their eligibility and help them utilize their new benefits. During January, for those customers who are enrolled in exchange-based plans but prescription benefit information is not yet available, Rite Aid pharmacists may dispense a 15 to 30-day supply of medication to these customers at no upfront cost until their prescription coverage details are available.
