Pharmacy Services Delivered With Care

 

At Williams Apothecary we are dedicated to providing individualized attention and genuine customer care. Our team delivers customized, person-centered care on every script, every time.


 

Person-Centered Care Approach

Accuracy      

After an order is sent to HealthDirect by a member of your care team, we review to confirm your prescription is the best-fit therapy. Our multi-step verification process and dose packaging ensures you receive the right medication.

A HealthDirect billing specialist works with you to establish a billing process. We also work directly with insurance companies to verify coverage and have private pay options. Split-billing is available for participants of multiple plans. Meaning, you only receive a bill for what you are responsible for. 

Caring pharmacists   

We provide much more than medication. Our comprehensive regimen review by a HealthDirect pharmacist provides you another layer of care. Key checks include:

  •      • Dosing review
  •      • Adverse reaction screens
  •      • Potential interactions review
  •      • Cost savings review
  •      • Order fill and 2nd clinical verification

 

Quality and delivery   

To ensures you get the medications you need, when you need them, we offer free delivery to those residing in Lancaster County. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications, products such as shampoos, cough drops, incontinence products, fiber therapy, and many other items typically in our neighborhood drug store are also available. 

Medication made simple    

In addition to traditional vials, we offer the Mediset system.  This system makes managing your medications clear and simple.  By taking the guess work what to take and when, you are able to prevent either over or under dosing.  Mediset is filled on a weekly basis, which helps to ensure any changes in your regimen are promptly captured and included with your fill.  

  

 

 


 

Cost-Management

We accept all state approved Medicare Part D plans, Medicaid, and most other insurance plans.  By working closely with Medicaid and prescription benefit plans, we are able to minimize your out of pocket cost. Our team obtains prior authorizations or finds alternative therapies covered by your prescription drug benefit plan.  

 

 


 

Prescriber Outreach

When transitioning to HealthDirect, our experienced Pharmacists will engage directly with the prescriber’s office to obtain the prescription information necessary to ensure you never go without your needed medications. 

 

 


 

Support and Information

HealthDirect’s Pharmacists are available to share their knowledge with our customers - keeping them safe, and informed with their drug regimens.  And our billing team can help with insurance coverage questions as well as prior-authorizations, covered alternatives, and account inquiries.

Tailored Hormone Replacement Therapy

Every patient is different when it comes to hormone replacement therapy. Shouldn't your medication be different too? Hormone therapy requires careful evaluation. Whether you are a man or a woman, therapy needs are individual, and commercially manufactured medications might not always be effective or tolerable.

At Williams Apothecary we believe hormone replacement therapy works best when it's designed for you. Working with you and your healthcare provider, our custom pharmacy creates personalized prescriptions to provide effective, individualized therapy while minimizing side effects. That means you get the exact dosage and optimum ingredients that are required for your treatment.

We also provide individual counseling by appointment for other health concerns such as pain management, diabetes, and high cholesterol to make sure your medications are doing their best for you.

Once your doctor determines that a medication consultation with one of our pharmacist is needed, there are many routes used to administer drug therapy, they are:

  •      • Orally (capsules, syrups, elixirs, suspensions)
  •      • Transdermally (creams, gels, lotions)
  •      • Sublingually (lozenges, oral drops, troches)
  •      • Intravaginally (creams, suppositories)
  •      • Rectally (suppositories, ointments)

Creative Compounding for Kids

Our pharmacist can help make medicine time easier for you and your child.  There are many reasons why children won't or can't take commercially manufactured medications. For some it's simply a matter of taste. But for others allergies to certain ingredients, diet restrictions, or the inability to take certain forms of medications, may be preventing them from receiving the benefits medicine can provide.

Williams Apothecary can help by customizing your child's prescription to create a better tasting, more effective and easier-to-take medication. Medications can be made into liquids, capsules, chewable tablets, gummy bears, lollipops, popsicles, suppositories, gels and ointments. That means your child can get the exact dosage and optimum ingredients required by your doctor.

Customized Pet Prescriptions

Just like humans, pets can also benefit from custom compounding. Through compounding your pets medications not only taste better, but will also provide the exact dosage and optimum ingredients required for effective treatment.  Our pharmacists work directly with your pet’s veterinarian to both collaborate on compounding and to create a customized solution solve medical problems that typically do not respond to commercially manufactured medications.
