If you have any questions about Medicare that aren’t answered here, we invite you to contact us.
Payments to the pharmacy are usually of two types; co-pay and deductible. A deductible is an out-of-pocket fee you are required to pay before your insurance “kicks in”. For example, if your insurer approved a charge of $10.00 and your deductible of $250 has not been met, you would pay the full amount of $10.00 for the prescription. After you have paid the complete deductible, the insurer would then have you pay a portion (the co-pay) . Co-pays vary from one plan to another, you should check your insurance company’s website, call your plan administrator at work, or call the help line number on the benefit card to find out exactly how much the co-pay is.
Many patients need help remembering to take their medications as directed. We have a variety of tools and methods to help you remember to take your medication including alarms, email notifications, pill boxes and others.

Your prescription insurance card should have a toll-free telephone number for customer inquiries posted on it. Ask the customer service representative what forms you need to fill out in order to file a claim for a prescription. These forms are also often available on your insurance company’s website. It is a good idea to do this BEFORE you send your prescription to Total Care RX, Inc. In some cases, insurance companies will require the signature of the pharmacist on your claim form. You may simply send your claim form to our pharmacy along with your prescription.
The receipts that our pharmacy provides with all of our prescriptions should be acceptable to your insurance company for claim submission. If you have any trouble submitting a claim, feel free to ask one of our pharmacists for an additional signed print-out of your pharmacy expenses.

In most cases, a prescription is valid for 12 months from the date it is written by your prescriber. Any refills on that prescription should be ordered within that 12-month time frame. Once a prescription expires, you will be required to obtain a new prescription from your doctor in order for us to fulfill your medications, even if there are refills remaining on it.
Our pharmacists are happy to request refills from your prescriber in your name. However, in the case of certain chronic care drugs, many prescribers wish to see their patients on a much more frequent schedule than others. You may have better results by contacting your physician yourself in case you are requested to make an appointment before another prescription will be written.
