Why should i use the cmmf pharmacy instead of another

Why should I use the CMMF Pharmacy instead of another?

  • You will save money on your co-pays (EVERY co-pay is less expensive when using our Pharmacy)

  • The CMH Medical Plan will save money - the premiums established by our medical plan reflect nearly $600,000 in savings due to employees using the in-house pharmacy

  • We are a 340B Pharmacy which, under federal guidelines, our purchase rates are typically lower than retail pharmacies

  • Maintenance Drug refills are required to be purchased through the CMH Pharmacy


What are the level of drugs

What are the level of drugs?

Drugs fall into four categories:

  • Certain over-the-counter drugs (i.e. prilosec)

  • Generic drugs

  • Preferred Brand name drugs

  • Non-preferred Brand name drugs


May i purchase a 90 day supply

May I purchase a 90 day supply?

  • You may purchase your Rx in various increments. Your doctor may prescribe dosages of any number of days (typically a 30 day, 60 day or 90 supply)

  • For “maintenance drugs”, those taken continuously and for long periods of time, purchasing in 90 day increments seems the most practical
