Our team will speak with your physician when needed.
The potential health benefits of this program include managing side effects, improved overall health, increased disease and medication education and awareness, increased medication compliance and when coordination of care with your physician is necessary, your pharmacist will have all the information needed to help make informed decisions regarding what is best for you as the patient
The potential limitations of this program are dependent on you as the patient. You must be willing to follow the directions of your physician and pharmacist, be compliant with taking your medication and willing to discuss the details of your disease, medical history and current practices with your pharmacist so he can have a full understanding of the situation.

1ST CHOICE: DRUG TAKE-BACK EVENTS
To dispose of prescription and over-the-counter drugs, call your city or county government’s household trash and recycling service and ask if a drug take-back program is available in your community. Some counties hold household hazardous waste collection days, where prescription and over-the-counter drugs are accepted at a central location for proper disposal.
2ND CHOICE: HOUSEHOLD DISPOSAL STEPS
- Take your prescription drugs out of their original containers.
- Mix drugs with an undesirable substance, such as cat litter or used coffee grounds.
- Put the mixture into a disposable container with a lid, such as an empty margarine tub, or into a sealable bag.
- Conceal or remove any personal information, including Rx number, on the empty containers by covering it with permanent marker or duct tape, or by scratching it off.
- The sealed container with the drug mixture, and the empty drug containers, can now be placed in the trash.

We have a plan if a disaster occurs. Disasters include a fire to our facility, chemical spills, major weather events and evacuations. Our goal is to continue to service your needs. If there is a threat of disaster or severe weather, please contact us for any medications you need to make sure you have enough.
Follow directions from the authorities in your area. We will use every resource available to continue to make sure we can serve you. While unlikely, there may be times where we cannot meet your needs because of an emergency. In these situations, you must use your local rescue or medical facility.
If we cannot get your medication to you due to an emergency, we will transfer your medication to a local pharmacy of your choice. If we cannot reach you or you cannot reach the pharmacy, please listen to your local news for help. Please make sure we have an emergency contact number so that we can reach you.
In the event of an emergency or disaster, remember the following:
- Make a list of your medications (prescribing physician, filling pharmacy, dosage)
- Store all medications in one location that is easy to grab if needed
- Know the phone number & address for your pharmacies
Prescription cost will vary depending on your insurance. Because drug pricing can change daily, a final determination of your co-pay cost including deductibles or co-insurance cannot be made until your claim is processed. If your insurance company considers SMP Pharmacy an out of network pharmacy, an explanation of the medication cost will be provided in writing at the time of dispensing or if requested by patient. Cash price of the medication is also available upon request by calling the pharmacy at 855.255.5009. You may also call the Member Services phone number on your prescription insurance card to get the most current information.
If you are unable to afford the out-of-pocket cost for your prescription, SMP Pharmacy will work to identify co-pay card assistance, patient assistant programs, or other support and/or charitable organizations. Visit the SMP Pharmacy’s website to learn about Patient Assistance.
The cost may also vary depending on the quantity of medication. Your prescription will be filled for medication that the physician prescribes. Please be sure to advise your physician to prescribe for the maximum amount/day supply allowable by your insurance coverage (days allowed may vary by plan).
If you have Medicare Part D drug coverage, the cost of your prescription will change significantly as you meet your deductible and initial co-pay, progress through the “donut hole” and reach total out-of-pocket expense. Patient Care Coordinators can assist you in determining and understanding your options. Visit our website to learn more about these services.
