The University of the Pacific Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences will host a series of ‘virtual’ Medicare Health Fairs this year.

During this year’s events we will again help to reevaluate beneficiaries’ Part D plan to make sure they are not paying more than they have to for their prescription drugs. Plans change every year so it is important that every Medicare beneficiary with a Part D plan reevaluate plan offerings and structure during the Medicare Open Enrollment Period (Oct 15- Dec 7).  Over the past 13 years of hosting our Medicare Health Fairs we have found that ~75% of beneficiaries could save money (average of $1,009/person per year) by switching to a different Part D plan in the upcoming year.

We will also be performing a comprehensive review of all (prescription and over-the-counter) of a patient’s medications to make sure they are safe and effective to take together. As part of this service, we will create a personalized medication record for them and share our findings of severe medication-related problems with their prescriber(s).

To take advantage of these services please call as soon as possible as appointments will be REQUIRED. Since we will not be meeting in person this year, the Part D and medication review interventions will be conducted via Zoom, WebEx, or a regular phone call (for those who do not have a computer, tablet or phone with a video camera).

If you have questions about our events or anything related to our Medicare program please call us at 209-910-DRUG (3784).

Finally, given the virtual nature of our events this year we can assist anyone regardless of where they live so we hope to broaden our reach. And finally if you are not familiar with our program, all of our services are FREE to community and part of our community outreach program!
