- Duplication of therapy
If needed, we will work with your doctor to resolve any of the above.
We offer in-store health screenings. These screenings can help you better understand your health status and guide you toward steps with which you can improve your well-being.

Refill Reminder Service
Upon a patient’s request, you can add yourself to the refill request list. Every time a prescription is due for a refill, the pharmacist or technician will call the customer to get authorisation before filling a medication.
Refill Request Authorisation
If a prescription cannot be refilled, Health Care Pharmacy will contact your physician to request a new prescription. Most doctors’ offices request two to three business days for all requests. However, if a patient is out of medication, it is at the pharmacist’s discretion to “loan out” enough medication until his or her doctor approves another refill.
Prior Authorisation Requests
Your health plan may require you to obtain prior authorisation before it chooses to pay for a particular medication. If that is the case, we will contact the insurance company and coordinate with the doctor’s office to expedite the prescription.
Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
Medication therapy management is a partnership between Health Care Pharmacy pharmacists, the patient (or caregiver), and other health professionals to promote the safe and effective use of medications.
