Rite Aid Readies Customers for 2016 Medicare Part D Enrollment

Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor Assists Medicare Beneficiaries and
Caregivers in Selecting Best Prescription Drug Plan for 2017

CAMP HILL, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Now through Dec. 7, 2016, Rite Aid pharmacies nationwide are providing
senior customers with free resources to help select the right
prescription drug plan (PDP) or update their existing coverage during
the annual Medicare Part D enrollment period. Customers can use Rite
Aid’s dedicated Medicare Advisor comparison tool to request the three
lowest-cost prescription drug plans based on current prescriptions
filled at Rite Aid*. Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor is available at any
Rite Aid pharmacy and can also be accessed online at www.riteaid.com/medicareadvisor.

“Choosing the best prescription drug plan to fit a customer’s
personalized needs is an important healthcare decision and can be
overwhelming,” said Jocelyn Konrad, executive vice president of pharmacy
for Rite Aid. “Rite Aid pharmacists stand ready to answer questions and
encourage patients to take advantage of the free resources we offer,
including Medicare Advisor, as they work towards selecting the drug plan
that best fits their prescription needs.”

With Rite Aid’s Medicare Advisor, customers can compare the estimated
annual costs of various plans, including monthly premiums, brand and
generic co-pays and drugs covered. Customers can then discuss their
Medicare Advisor report with their Rite Aid pharmacists, who are
