CHC has opened an onsite pharmacy at our Riverside practice. Accessibly located in the heart of Burlington’s Old North End at 617 Riverside Avenue, this service allows community members to refill their prescriptions before they leave the building. The CHC – Pharmacy accepts all major insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare.
For many years, CHC has been part of a Federally Qualified Health Center pharmacy network which offers eligible patients reduced-cost prescriptions, saving patients roughly $2 million annually. In adding our own pharmacy onsite, CHC has taken the next step in ensuring accessibility to medications for their community members.
“No patient should ever have to make the difficult decision between refilling their prescription and their family’s next meal,” said Jeff McKee, CHC CEO. “Adding a physical pharmacy into our array of services is a proactive approach that ensures that no matter what is happening in the national pharmaceutical landscape, our patients are protected. We now have the ability to work with partners, not only to maintain the 340B prescription drug program, but expand it.”
