Where We Provide Service

"A&E has been such a reliable partner in serving our population of residents. A&E is dedicated to prompt delivery of medications and is always just a phone call or email away for any questions regarding our pharmaceutical needs. We are forever thankful for the endless support throughout the Covid-19 pandemic; their work was outstanding. We were provided hundreds of vaccines for our staff and residents during the darkest times of the pandemic. Their hard work and dedication have protected our population without a doubt. I would recommend A&E to any facility looking for a pharmaceutical team; they are the best partner a facility could ask for."

A&E partners with all physicians and specialists and A&E will follow up with physicians regarding prescriptions and work collaboratively to ensure safety.

Are costs the same? What can I expect to pay?

We accept all insurances including Tricare. There are some plans that have “preferred networks” which may limit your pharmacy choices to receive medications at the lowest copay. We are not able to provide medications for those insured through Veterans Affairs. Nearly all OTC products are available and competitively priced. Statements will be sent monthly for co-pays to each resident, POA or designated representative. A&E accepts credit cards or a check for payment.

Why do the costs I pay for my drugs change throughout the year?

There are various reasons why your costs may change:

If your dosage and/or quantity changes for a prescription, the cost may change. For example, if your doctor or other prescriber increases the quantity from one pill a day to three, you may pay more.

There are times when the manufacturer increases the cost of a drug. If you are paying a percentage of that cost, then when the cost increases, both you and your plan will be paying more for the drug.

The most common reason your costs will change depends on which coverage stage you are in. There are four different coverage stages for most Medicare prescription drug coverage plans. How much you pay for a drug depends on which coverage stage you are in.

What are the stages of Medicare prescription drug coverage?

Deductible stage: If your plan has a deductible (you’ll have to pay the full cost of your drugs until you meet your deductible).

Initial Coverage stage: Once you meet your deductible, you’ll pay a portion of the cost of your drugs and your plan will pay the rest. Once your total drug spend (what you pay and what the plan pays) reach $3,750 (in 2018) and $3,820 (in 2019) for the year, you move into the next stage.

Coverage Gap stage: During this stage, your plan generally covers a lower percentage of the cost of your drugs than in the Initial Coverage stage. You pay 44% of the cost of generic drugs, and 35% of the cost of brand name drugs in 2018 or 37% of the cost of generic drugs and 25% of the cost of brand name drugs in 2019.

Catastrophic Coverage stage: Once your out-of-pocket costs for covered drugs reach $5,000 (in 2018) and $5,100 (in 2019), you will be in the Catastrophic Coverage stage. Then you will pay either a 5% coinsurance on the cost of covered drugs or a copay of $3.35 (in 2018) or $3.40 (in 2019) for covered generic drugs and $8.35 (in 2018) or $8.50 (in 2019) for covered brand name drugs, whichever is greater.

Who should I contact with questions on pricing?

First, contact your Medicare Part D insurance provider to understand your policy. If you have further questions, please call A&E pharmacy.
