INFINITY HEALTH IMPROVES ACCESS TO 340B DRUG DISCOUNT PROGRAM AND PHARMACY SERVICES
February 14, 2023
LEON, IA (February 14, 2023) – Many people in rural communities do not take their prescribed medications due to the high cost of or lack of access. Infinity Health continues to seek ways to provide patients and community members with access to prescription medications at a low cost. The increased access includes offering the 340B drug discount program and expansions in delivery options.
Adam Dosch, Director of Pharmacy at Infinity Health stated, “Our mission is to provide the best customer service to our patients and provide them with the lowest prescription medication pricing.”
The 340B drug discount program is critical for many patients, as it significantly reduces the cost of prescription drugs and can be life-saving. The 340B drug discount program also promotes health equity by providing greater access to underserved communities by providing a savings to qualified individuals. Qualified individuals are patients of Infinity Health who receive a prescription by an Infinity Health provider.
“Our team of pharmacists, techs and support staff put our patients first and foremost,” stated Dosch, “We offer every patient the lowest possible price at the register and offer multiple delivery options to ensure they have access to their prescription medications.”
Infinity Health offers multiple delivery options for prescribed medications. Patients may choose to have their prescriptions mailed to their home. Patients wishing to pick up their medications from the Leon pharmacy may choose to go inside or receive curbside delivery. Curbside delivery allows patients to park in one of three designated parking spots and stay in their car while a friendly pharmacy team member brings their prescriptions to them in the comfort of their vehicle. Residents of Decatur County, Iowa also have the option to have their prescription medications delivered to their home. Expanding the delivery options allows for greater access to the prescription medications in the communities Infinity Health serves.
