Does Summit Health Pharmacy take my insurance and will insurance cover my compounded medication?
We do take most insurance plans here at Summit Health Pharmacy. Some insurances pay for compounds. There are always exceptions. Just as some insurance companies don't cover regular prescriptions, some insurance companies don't cover compounds either. Sometimes it takes extra work to get a medication covered. We will work with your insurance company to get your medication covered, if possible. If it can be covered, we will get it done. We do the work. We strive to keep the burden off of our patients and providers.

State and Federal laws prevent the return of any prescription medication, and that includes compounded medication.

How safe are Compounds? Are they FDA approved?
When compounds are made at Compounding Pharmacies that have been accredited by agencies that have high standards and on-going inspections, and are clean and up-dated facilities, they are very safe. We are accredited by the highest accreditation agency the industry offers. We invite you to come and see our pharmacy at any time to see where and how we work. We are proud of our facility.
