As the annual Medicare Part D enrollment period gets underway, from now through Dec. 7, 2017, Rite Aid pharmacies nationwide are providing senior customers with free resources to help select the right prescription drug plan (PDP) or update their existing coverage for 2018. Patients and caregivers can use Rite Aid's dedicated Medicare Advisor comparison tool available at www.riteaid.com/medicareadvisor and in all Rite Aid pharmacies, to request the three lowest-cost prescription drug plans based on current prescriptions filled at Rite Aid *. "Prescription medications play a critical role when it comes to living and staying well, so it's important that patients review their prescription drug plan each year and choose the one that best fits their individual needs," said Jocelyn Konrad, Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy. "Using Rite Aid's Medicare Advisor tool, patients can compare the estimated annual costs of various plans, including monthly premiums, brand and generic co-pays and drugs covered, and as always, Rite Aid pharmacists are available to meet with customers to review their Medicare Advisor reports and answer questions." Rite Aid participates in the networks of hundreds of other Medicare prescription drug plans; see www.riteaid.com/medicareadvisor for more information. Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) is one of the nation's leading drugstore chains with fiscal 2017 annual revenues of $32.8 billion.
