In addition to basic food and household supplies, it is important to have an emergency supply of prescription medications. We recommend that there is at least 2 to 3 weeks worth of medications on hand in an emergency preparedness kit. A great way to store these are with pill bags or resealable plastic bags. The prescription name, dosage, frequency, and expiration date can be written on the front of the bag for ease of identification. Please contact your pharmacy for timely refills of your medications.
For those who may want or need to evacuate or do not feel comfortable traveling to our office, we will be continuing to offer virtual visits. Virtual visit coverage for Medicare patients has been extended to December 31, 2024. For commercial insurance, please contact your insurance carrier to inquire about virtual visit coverage under your plan’s contract. This is subject to change as more information is released.
As always, stay safe and healthy!
