Patient Support Programs
High cost specialty medication costs are very often reimbursed to patients by Patient Support Programs. These programs often help cover private drug plan or Trillium deductibles, granting patients financial help with coverage. We work with all Patient Support Programs to make sure you receive your specialty medications in a timely manner and realize maximum savings.
Free Prescription Delivery
We deliver all prescription items for free within the town of Picton. Our friendly delivery drivers are happy to serve you.
Compliance packaging assists patients in staying organized with their medications. We understand that sometimes remembering to take your medication can be a challenge and that poor compliance can put patients at serious risk. At the County Drugstore our Pharmacist works with patients and their caregivers to establish the best medication regimen and dosing schedule. Next, our skilled compliance packaging team works to prepare your dosettes on a regular basis. For patients who are enrolled in the compliance pack program, we work directly with Doctors offices to make sure you never run out of refills.
If you have questions about your medications or anything healthcare related, our knowledgeable Pharmacists will be happy to provide you with a free one-on-one consultation. Your good health is important to us! Let us answer any of your questions, we can help you optimize your medication regimen and put you on the right path to optimal health. Patients taking 3 or more regular medications are eligible for a Ministry of Health funded MedsCheck consultation. Ask us today!
Prescription Refill Requests
Getting in touch with your Doctors office can be difficult at times. We will happily contact your Doctor for you to obtain refills, make recommendations and discuss any concerns you may have about your medications.
Emergency Prescription Renewals
If you are out of refills on your regular medication and your Doctor is away or has not responded in time, you can count on us to have you covered. We understand that continuity of care is important for positive health outcomes. Our Pharmacist will conduct a therapeutic assessment and if appropriate, dispense enough medication to make sure you do not go without.
Going on a holiday? Before you leave make sure that you have enough medication on hand to last while you are away. We are happy to provide our patients with holiday supplies to ensure you do not run out while travelling. Certain restrictions may apply based on specific drug plan rules. Ask us how we can help you prepare for your holiday!
Visiting the County? If you are visiting us and you ran out, or perhaps forgot your medication at home we can help! Very often we can contact your home pharmacy or Doctors office to verify your prescription. Our Pharmacist will conduct a therapeutic assessment based on the information provided and if appropriate, issue you an emergency refill so that you do not go without your medication.
Hepatitis C Screening
We are happy to offer free Hepatitis C screening for anyone in our community. Hepatitis C is a chronic liver infection where 40% of people affected do not know they have the disease. Complications include liver scarring and liver cancer. There are many risk factors that people may not be aware of. Did you know that people born between 1945 and 1975 and those who have had blood transfusions and organ transplants before 1992 should be screened? Talk to us about getting screened. We provide rapid on site testing, which takes no more than 10 minutes and provide a referral to a healthcare specialist who can help treat the infection.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is a way for people who do not have HIV but who are at risk of getting HIV to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill every day. When taken daily, PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV. Studies have shown that PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99% when taken daily. Our pharmacy proudly offers PrEP dispensing services and will provide you a referral to a healthcare specialist.
Opioid Agonist Therapy
We provide methadone and suboxone dispensing services. If you or your loved one can benefit from this type of treatment please talk to us. Our Pharmacists are trained and happy to help you or your loved one on the path to recovery.
