Bethel Family Clinic contains a small dispensary. We carry many commonly used medications. Most insurances do not cover medications that are given out by us because we are not a pharmacy. We generally do not supply patients with chronic medications.
We collaborate with commercial pharmacies in Anchorage to deliver medicines to our patients. Prescriptions ordered on an expedited basis usually arrive within 24 hours. Medicines mailed from Anchorage arrive in two or three days.
Patients using the commercial pharmacies are expected to develop an account with the pharmacy, usually via a credit card. The pharmacy then bills the patient and/or the patient’s insurance for the pharmacy services.
