HealthLinc Rx opened for business at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 26 inside the HealthLinc clinic located at 1001 N. Sturdy Rd., in Valparaiso. This location was previously leased to Fagen Pharmacy. HealthLinc recognized the need for patients and the community to have greater access to pharmacy services and responded by opening HealthLinc Rx.

HealthLinc Rx is a full-service pharmacy providing access to quality medications, over-the-counter products, medication education and counseling, and cost savings programs including 340B pricing for HealthLinc patients.

HealthLinc Rx partners with HealthLinc providers to offer comprehensive, patient-centered continuity of care including exceptional pharmaceutical care at the lowest possible price. All HealthLinc pharmacists have extensive experience working in a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and a deep knowledge of 340B pricing options. While most HealthLinc clinics have pharmacists on site that consult with patients and providers about medications, only HealthLinc Rx in Valparaiso is able to dispense medications.

“We are thrilled to once again have pharmacy services in the same location as our clinic,” says Beth Wrobel, HealthLinc CEO. “The pharmacy is open to the public, not just HealthLinc patients which allows everyone to have access to our experienced and knowledgeable pharmacists.”

The HealthLinc Pharmacy is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

HealthLinc Pharmacy accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) and most commercial insurance. HealthLinc Patients may be eligible for discounts through the 340B Drug Pricing Program.
