As rural healthcare specialists, the Good Graces Pharmacy team understand and take personally the responsibility to ensure each patient has access to the best possible medications the healthcare team(s) deem necessary for your treatment. These treatments often involve several steps to be covered on insurance, can be costly name-brand medications, or are difficult to find options that involve many conversations with multiple groups or individuals just to obtain access to the medication(s). We take pride in making sure that every patient has a voice and we use our expertise, our relationships, and our knowledge of programs and opportunities for patients to work with you for your best healthcare opportunities. See each section below for some of the most common opportunities Good Graces Pharmacy has for you, and click the images to the left for more information!
As a HealthMart Pharmacy, Good Graces Pharmacy competes nationally to ensure we have the best possible coverage on the widest range of health insurance options for our patients. We contract with most insurance plans and work diligently to find ways to coordinate these plans tailored to each patients' specific needs. We also spend one-on-one time with you to help you answer any questions about specific plan options for you and can help you find professional experts to work with your specific needs to get the best possible coverage.
Sometimes, the best treatments for a condition mean that we will be using expensive name-brand medications that don't yet have generic alternatives, and can be costly. At Good Graces Pharmacy, we look for options that include finding manufacturer coupons for medications, if possible, and utilize a common site to help direct us to the exact information necessary to obtain these coupons. Not every medication has coupons, and not every coupon works for every individual, but we will work with you to find the best option available.
Expert clinical judgement is a new concept for some pharmacies across the United States, but at Good Graces our pharmacists have been involved in healthcare team decisions for the betterment of patient care. This means we work not only as your medication delivery mechanism, but we critically evaluate scenarios with your prescribers to find the best clinical outcome for you, provided the opportunity. We have direct knowledge of specific medications designed to help with more than one condition (such as a diabetes medication that also helps protect heart function, or an antidepressant that also provides pain relief for certain medical conditions). Using this knowledge, we often find alternative therapies for your treatment that can save you money by not only using less medication(s) but also to find cheapest alternative for your treatment(s) and balancing the effectiveness for your health condition. We can also provide a myriad of services that can save you time and money, such as immunizations, injection of specific chronic medications, unique caveats of healthcare such as pharmacogenomic testing and reviews, and so much more.
Medication Therapy Management (MTM) has been a concept that was directly derived from Medicare drug plans to have pharmacies assist them in offsetting certain costs by attempting to have prescribers change therapy(ies) to make it cheaper for the insurances. However, true MTM involves a critical review of a patients entire medication regiment, including over-the-counter supplements and therapies, finding the gaps in treatment and offering patients the most information possible to improve their overall health. At Good Graces Pharmacy, we take this approach further than most by working to find your best pharmaceutical regiment covered by your insurance (specifically tailored to your health situation at the time of review), but we also work to evaluate your lacking supplementation therapies (many of which are depleted by prescription therapies, which in turn causes a greater need for other therapies down the road, much of which can be avoided by proper supplementation of specific vitamins and herbals). Stop by today to see how Good Graces pharmacists can assist your entire health picture and become the healthiest individual you can be!
