CareSouth Pharmacy offers free prescription delivery for all CareSouth Medical and Dental patients, which is especially important during COVID-19.
“This is a service that we’ve been providing since we opened the pharmacy in July 2019, but now with COVID-19 it’s getting even more popular,” said CEO Matthew Valliere. “We deliver to Houma, LaPlace and all over the area. We’re happy to provide this service which is not only convenient for our patients, but also helps protect our patients and staff.”
“Everybody wants delivery these days,” said CareSouth pharmacist Dwight Thibodeaux. “Our patients just love being home and getting their meds.”
Patients can get their medications delivered to their homes within a 40-mile radius of CareSouth locations in Baton Rouge, Zachary, Plaquemine, and Donaldsonville. The CareSouth Pharmacy is located in Zachary at 4852 Highway 19 and also offers curbside service.
The pharmacy provides prescriptions at nominal prices as part of the 340B Drug Discount program. The federal program allows Federally Qualified Health Centers like CareSouth and other eligible providers that serve low-income and Medicaid populations to purchase outpatient drugs from manufacturers at a significant discount which is passed on to patients.
