Rite Aid Offering Free Advisor Tool to Help Medicare Beneficiaries Choose Prescription Drug Coverage for 2019

As the annual Medicare Part D election period gets underway, from now through Dec. 7, 2018, Medicare-eligible customers can visit Rite Aid pharmacies nationwide to take advantage of free resources that help them select the right prescription drug plan (PDP) or update existing coverage for 2019.

Patients and caregivers can use Rite Aid's dedicated Medicare Advisor comparison tool, available at or by asking their Rite Aid pharmacist, to request the three lowest-cost prescription drug plans based on current prescriptions filled at Rite Aid*.

Through the free Medicare Advisor tool, patients can compare the estimated annual costs of various plans, including monthly premiums, brand and generic co-pays and prescription drugs covered. There is no obligation to enroll or change plans.

“Choosing the right prescription drug plan is an important decision for our senior customers, and we’re pleased to be offering free resources through the Medicare Advisor tool that will help Medicare beneficiaries select the best plan for their individual needs,” said Jocelyn Konrad, Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy. “As always, our Rite Aid pharmacists are available to meet with customers to review their reports and answer any questions they may have as they make this important decision.”

In addition, Rite Aid participates in hundreds of Medicare prescription drug plan networks; see for more information.

Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) is one of the nation's leading drugstore chains with fiscal 2018 annual revenues of $21.5 billion. Information about Rite Aid, including corporate background and press releases, is available through the company's website at
