FINANCIAL POLICY FOR PAYMENT OF PHARMACY SERVICES
Patients are expected to pay for their prescriptions at the time of service by cash, check, or bank card.
Estimates will be given prior to compounding your prescription.
Eastern States Compounding is contracted with a number of pharmacy benefit providers. Please let
our staff know if you have prescription coverage. If we are not contracted
with your particular pharmacy benefit company we will assist you in filing
forms for reimbursement. In this case we require payment at the time of
service and reimbursement, if available, will be paid directly to the
patient. Please bring or fax a copy your insurance card and/or a completed insurance form to your first visit.
For those patients who have established accounts, payment is due on the date your prescription is picked up/mailed or before the next billing date (10th of each month) and can be made by cash, check or bank card.
0.83% per month (10% per year) will be charged on all accounts over $5.00 which are more than 60 days old.
There will be a$30.00 charge on all checks returned for insufficient funds.
Eastern States Compounding Pharmacy provides a limited amount of services pro bono. Each case is evaluated on an individual basis.
State law dictates that once a prescription medication leaves the premises of a pharmacy, it can no longer be returned. Over the counter (OTC) nutritional supplements that are still sealed and not damaged can be returned for a full refund with proof of purchase.
