Shopko pharmacies are prepared to assist individuals who are experiencing coverage issues now that the Affordable Care Act is underway. With the many new insurance plans available from the Health Insurance Marketplace and the delays the Marketplace has experienced, some patients may encounter prescription coverage issues until they receive their new insurance card.
“Consistent with our usual practice, Shopko will do what is needed to take care of the customer so they do not experience any delays filling prescriptions and getting necessary medications,” said Mike Bettiga, Chief Operating Officer.
Shopko will assist patients with a valid prescription but who have not received their insurance card by providing an interim supply of prescriptions. Proof of enrollment will be required.
Pharmacy customers with questions are encouraged to contact their local Shopko pharmacy.
Shopko is owned by an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., a leading private investment firm focused on leverage buyouts, equity, debt, and other investments in market-leading companies.
