PASCO -- Patients at Community Health Center La Clinica soon will be able to purchase discounted prescription drugs at an in-house pharmacy through a new agreement with Custom Prescription Shoppe Pharmacy.
The Pasco clinic and Wellpartner, a national pharmacy distribution service, entered into an agreement to allow patients access to discounted prescriptions at the clinic's in-house pharmacy and a network of retail pharmacies in the area.
La Clinica will offer the in-house pharmacy at its main medical office building at 515 W. Court St., Pasco, under the Custom Prescription Shoppe name.
The clinic also will contract with other pharmacies to offer the discount prescriptions through the Wellpartner 340B Access Solution program.
La Clinica CEO Carl I. Walters II said patients have had access to discounted drugs through the program since 2007, but creation of an in-house pharmacy and expanding the retail pharmacy network will widen opportunities for families to get affordable prescription drugs.
