It is vitally important to one’s health to take any medications they are prescribed regularly, especially when one’s health is compromised by a chronic condition or illness. When medications are not taken at regular intervals and in their prescribed doses, the level of drug in the blood becomes too low to effectively fight off the virus. This allows the virus to mutate and multiply, therefore becoming too resistant to the effects of the drug.
With the cost of healthcare rising every day, people struggle to fill their prescriptions has regularly as they should. But Publix Pharmacy has launched a new program to provide people with a 90-day supply of the most commonly prescribed medications for a low copay of $7.50.
“Our founder, George Jenkins, taught us to take care of people and our communities, and making needed medications more affordable provide us this opportunity,” said Maria Brous, director of media and community relations.
No matter the patient’s insurance coverage, the price remains the same. It is Publix Pharmacy’s goal to help patients anticipate low out-of-pocket costs and encourage them to take their medications as prescribed. By adhering to their prescription therapy, patients can stay away from worsening conditions and hospital readmissions.
This program provides twenty-nine generic medications with eighty-five dosage options available to treat:
- heart health/cardiovascular
- mental health
- seizure disorders
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- gastrointestinal issues
- asthma and allergies
- men’s health and
- women’s health.
