Who We Serve

The individuals we serve live in intermediate care facilities, wavier homes, group homes, assisted living, supported-living or foster care. They may have diagnoses of acquired brain injury, dementia, cerebral palsy, autism or Alzheimer’s disease, among others.

Pharmacy Alternatives provides comprehensive pharmacy services to many types of agencies across the United States. We take the guesswork out of getting medications for the individuals you serve.

How We Help

Our certified pharmacists are happy to work directly with clients, family members, physicians or other supporting agencies to answer any questions about medications or our services.

Pharmacy Alternatives employs several pharmacist consultants to travel to community settings to evaluate an individual’s medication regimen on a periodic basis.

Flexible and Knowledgeable Care

We want the individuals we serve to get the most from their prescription drug coverage. Pharmacy Alternatives is experienced in working with Medicaid, Medicare Part D, Medicare Part B, private insurance and private pay individuals.
