Being a patient of Access Health Louisiana (AHL) can help you save money each month on your prescription medications. AHL patients can purchase discounted drugs through the federal 340B program. This program allows uninsured and underinsured patients access to critical medications that would otherwise be cost prohibitive for them to obtain.
AHL is contracted with both big chain and independently owned pharmacies giving patients a wide variety of choices when it comes to getting their prescriptions filled. Every AHL clinic has at least one partner pharmacy within 5 miles of the clinic, if not much closer. This means that in many cases, patients can continue getting their prescriptions filled at the pharmacies they are used to going to, without having to go to some place new.
Here is a list of pharmacies where AHL patients can currently save money on their medications:
- Albertson’s (Alexandria)
- Russo’s Pharmacy (Belle Chasse)
- Nielsen Pharmacy (Bogalusa)
- Nielsen City Drugs (Bogalusa)
- Wilkinson Family Pharmacy (Chalmette)
- Destrehan Pharmacy (Destrehan)
- Thrift Village Drugs (Luling)
- Finnan’s Family Pharmacy (Slidell)
- Van Mol Family Pharmacy (Woodworth)
*contact your clinic for the location nearest you
Patients who prefer to receive their prescriptions by mail can also save money. We are contracted with three specialty pharmacies including: Acaria, Avella and Total Life Care.
Information on the 340B program is available at every clinic front desk. Just ask our staff for a 340B card. Each card has information that your pharmacy will need to run the claim, as well as a list of eligible pharmacies closest to that clinic. You can also find out from your provider how much money you’ll save on your medication by utilizing the program.
