Since 2007, Pacific's Medicare Part D Outreach Clinics have assisted 11,108 beneficiaries with their Medicare Part D drug plan, helping beneficiaries save an estimated total of $11.27 million.

Doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students work with each beneficiary to evaluate all Part D prescription drug plan offerings to identify the one that will help minimize out-of-pocket prescription drug costs. We intend to serve as an objective, unbiased resource that beneficiaries can rely upon in getting accurate information about Medicare Part D plan offerings.

The need for these events is ongoing, as Medicare Part D plan offerings change each year, as do the formulary and cost-sharing structure of each plan. Students also provide Medication Therapy Management, a comprehensive evaluation of the patient's medications to ensure they are safe and effective to take together. If needed (and with permission from the patient), we will contact the beneficiary's physician and/or pharmacist and share with them our findings and make specific recommendations.

During this window of time, beneficiaries can change their Medicare Part D drug plan. If you need help with selecting a Part D plan or want to ensure your current plan is the ‘best’ one for you, please attend one of our virtual community outreach events.

Plans can change formularies and cost-sharing structure every year. On average, ~75% beneficiaries can save money on their drug plan costs by examining all available choices. On average, Medicare beneficiaries can save $1,014 per year by optimizing their Part D plan.

Yes! We will evaluate all of the Medicare Part D plans you are eligible for and identify the one which will minimize your out-of-pocket expenses. We can also identify if you may qualify for additional governmental assistance to help lower your out-of-pocket prescription medications.

We will review all of your medications to make sure that they are safe to take together and answer any questions that you may have. If we have concerns, we can directly contact your prescriber and/or pharmacist to share our recommendations.

Absolutely! When you make an appointment please indicate that both of you will need an intervention and on the day of the event the two of you will be placed into the same intervention. While doing this will increase the length of the intervention, we are happy to accommodate this type of request.

It is best to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. This will ensure that you are able to find a day and time that works best for you. We anticipate that we will have a full house at most events this year.

Yes, if you attend our IN-PERSON events, but wait times may vary. For all VIRTUAL events, scheduling an appointment is REQUIRED, not recommended. This is due to the intricacies of the telehealth interventions that we will be performing this year. We hope you understand.

As in year’s past, we will take as long as needed to ensure that you receive the care that you need. We will do our best to be efficient with your time but will never rush and compromise your care. On average, we expect that the length of the intervention for someone who wants both Part D and medication review services will take 1 hour and 15 minutes. For those only wanting one of the two services, the average length of the intervention would be closer to 45 minutes. If you are joined in your room by a friend/family member also needing help, this will lengthen the intervention.

We have been working closely with our Information Technology department and local experts on ways to ensure privacy of our interventions and to protect these sessions. We have several safeguards in place to ensure that this is the case. Your privacy is our number one concern and we will do our best to never compromise your trust.

Yes, but only at our IN-PERSON events.

At our IN-PERSON events, we will be offering diabetes screening (hemoglobin A1C, blood glucose), bone density testing, falls risk assessment, blood pressure testing, cholesterol testing, anemia testing, depression screening, anxiety screening, insomnia screening and memory decline screening. We will also be offering flu, pneumonia, shingles, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis/whooping cough) and Hepatitis B vaccinations at all clinics.
