GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Partners in Primary Care is making it more convenient for patients at its Orchard Park and Anderson medical centers to fill their prescriptions with an on-site pharmacy.

The integrated retail Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) pharmacy aims to provide Medicare patients of Partners in Primary Care with clinical support and a full-service pharmacy in the same building as their physician’s office. The pharmacies accept Humana Medicare Advantage plans as well as those of other insurance carriers.

On-site pharmacies are now open at the Partners in Primary Care Anderson location at 2001 E. Greenville St. and at the Orchard Park center at 105 Orchard Park Dr. Both pharmacy locations have the same operating hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed for lunch from 12:30-1 p.m.

In addition to performing standard retail pharmacy duties, pharmacists will provide medication consultation and fill prescriptions in the same location as the patient’s physician. In this setting, the pharmacist will be able to alert physicians to potential adverse reactions on the spot, and resolve any prescription issues before the member leaves the medical center.

The on-site pharmacy is an extension of Humana’s mail order prescription drug service. Humana Pharmacy staff is on site to answer questions about mail-order pharmacy services, and assist patients who visit the pharmacy.

These new pharmacy locations join nine Humana Pharmacy integrated retail pharmacies that have opened since November, 2015 and 22 other Humana-owned retail pharmacies already operating throughout South Florida, Louisville and San Antonio.
