Pharmacy

When you come to our pharmacy, you'll be able to count on dependable care from a knowledgeable pharmacist—one that takes the time to get to know you and your unique health needs. Memorial's Medical Plaza Pharmacy works closely with your physician to ensure that the best care is provided to you.

Services include:

  • Mobile prescription refills
  • RX text messaging: To enroll in Rx messaging call 337-494-2990 to verify your current mobile number. There is no fee but messaging and data rates may apply.
  • On-site pharmacist consulting
  • Prescription delivery available to employees

We can also fill all of your discharge medications and deliver them directly to your bedside before you leave the hospital, saving you and your family a time-consuming trip before you arrive home. Prescriptions can also be picked up in the pharmacy, if preferred.

FAQ:

How do you handle prescriptions that require a prior Authorization from my insurance company?

  • Our hospital staff will call your insurance company while you are at the hospital to attempt to get approval for your medication or will ask your physician to prescribe an equivalent alternative.

If my prescription has a refill, do I have to come back to the hospital to get it filled?

  • No, we would be happy to fill your prescriptions here. If you would like to have your prescription transferred, have your pharmacy contact us.

Will I be notified of the cost of my medications?

  • Yes, we will notify you of the cost before we fill the medication and bring it to your room.

Can prescriptions be billed or added to my hospital bill?

  • No, prescriptions filled by the bedside delivery program are considered an outpatient pharmacy service and cannot be added to your inpatient hospital bill.

Do you accept my prescription insurance plan?

  • We accept most prescription insurance plans. Prescriptions are directly billed to your insurance providers. You are responsible for any co-payments from your insurance coverage. Co-payments must be paid for when you receive your prescription(s).

What if I forgot to bring my prescription insurance card to the hospital?

  • Medical Plaza Pharmacy will gladly call your current pharmacy and obtain prescription insurance information.
