Family Medicine Health Center now offers pharmacy services for our patients. Located at our Emerald Clinic office in West Boise at 6565 W. Emerald.
Our pharmacy opened April 1, 2013, no fooling! Did you know that filling your prescriptions at the FMHC Pharmacy helps us to continue to train family doctors?
Idaho has the lowest number of primary care doctors per capita of any state, and we are working to change that. FMHC as part of the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho (FMRI) trains family doctors to work in rural areas of Idaho and the surrounding Western states. 157 graduates of FMRI currently practice in Idaho, 41% of which are in rural or underserved areas.
The FMHC Pharmacy is certified to fill prescriptions under the federal 340B program. The purpose of the federal 340B program is to provide low cost medications for uninsured patients. It has the added benefit of helping to financially support clinics that take care of patients without health insurance. So every time an FMHC patient with private health insurance or Medicare fills a script at our pharmacy, part of the profit helps to support FMHC’s non-profit services.
Please note that where you have your prescriptions filled is completely up to you, and patronizing our pharmacy would be completely VOLUNTARY. However, we would appreciate it if you would consider supporting this worthy cause.
FMHC offers a sliding fee discount program to eligible persons based on the patient’s ability to pay. Ability to pay is determined by the household size and annual income relative to a discount schedule based on federal poverty income guidelines.
