Buckner Pharmacy, a full-service pharmacy that works in conjunction with all clinics and pharmacies – including prescription transfers – has value-added benefits that truly keep its customers top of mind. What follows are among the services and benefits customers can expect.

Collaboration with Live Well Community Health Center to Reduce Prescription Costs

Buckner Pharmacy has become one of the Live Well Community Health Center’s preferred 340B pharmacies. Under the umbrella of the government 340B program, the pharmacy offers extreme savings on prescriptions for Live Well Community Health Center patients. There are no income or financial requirements. Whether insured or uninsured, this program is available to all Live Well Community Health Center patients who use this pharmacy. Consultations regarding individualized cost savings opportunities are welcome.

Medication Management Program

Dispill packaging is a free service offered to patients. This service consists of packaging the patient’s prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications into daily pill blisters. For convenience, medication blisters are color-coded indicating morning, noon, evening and bedtime dosages. Each bubble is dated, labeled and detachable for those “on the go”.

Free Vitamin Program for Children

Free chewable vitamins are offered to children ages 5 - 12 whose doctor recommends they take a vitamin supplement. Children’s Chewable Vitamin & Mineral Supplement, 30-count bottle, is covered under this program. This supplement can be refilled once per month, but no more than seven days early unless prior arrangements have been made. No additional purchase is necessary, but sign up is required to take advantage of this program. This service is offered by Buckner Pharmacy in appreciation to the community for its ongoing support.

Loyalty Program

Patients earn points for in-store purchases and prescriptions. The signup process is easy with no cards or associated fees. The points will automatically link to a patient’s personal account and once accumulated, can be redeemed for an in-store purchase.

Over-the-Counter (OTC) Products

A wide variety of over-the-counter (OTC) products are kept in stock; however, specific items can be ordered and in by the next business day. Specialty products like Tru Airbrush cosmetics, a healthy mineral based formula used on the set of the Miss America pageant, is available. In addition, Rx Skin Therapy, a dermatologist recommended skin care line, is in stock as well.
