    CareSouth Pharmacy offering free prescription delivery service

    CareSouth Pharmacy offers free prescription delivery for all CareSouth Medical and Dental patients, which is especially important during COVID-19.

    “This is a service that we’ve been providing since we opened the pharmacy in July 2019, but now with COVID-19 it’s getting even more popular,” said CEO Matthew Valliere. “We deliver to Houma, LaPlace and all over the area. We’re happy to provide this service which is not only convenient for our patients, but also helps protect our patients and staff.”

    “Everybody wants delivery these days,” said CareSouth pharmacist Dwight Thibodeaux. “Our patients just love being home and getting their meds.”

    Patients can get their medications delivered to their homes within a 40-mile radius of CareSouth locations in Baton Rouge, Zachary, Plaquemine, and Donaldsonville. The CareSouth Pharmacy is located in Zachary at 4852 Highway 19 and also offers curbside service.

    The pharmacy provides prescriptions at nominal prices as part of the 340B Drug Discount program. The federal program allows Federally Qualified Health Centers like CareSouth and other eligible providers that serve low-income and Medicaid populations to purchase outpatient drugs from manufacturers at a significant discount which is passed on to patients.

    CareSouth offering curbside WIC services during COVID-19

    CareSouth Medical and Dental  is offering curbside service for its WIC program to ensure that families still receive nutritious food during the quarantine.

    Due to COVID-19, the USDA recently waived certain requirements for participants to receive WIC benefits. Appointments can be made over the phone and curbside services are offered at various CareSouth locations. Curbside services include providing required information to staff over the phone. Staff will then load benefits to your card from the clinic. Please remember to bring your ID and current WIC EBT card if you already have one.

    “We’re happy to be able to continue to provide healthy food for our families, while practicing social distancing,” said CareSouth CEO Matthew Valliere. “We’ve been offering curbside service since March 23 and it’s going really good.”

    Valliere said the clinic has been receiving more inquiries lately due to residents losing their jobs or being furloughed.

    The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children also known as the WIC program provides healthy food for women and infants and children up to five years old.   Participants receive eggs, juice, cheese, fruits and vegetables, beans, and infant formula among other things. The program also offers breastfeeding support, nutrition education and referrals to other social services.

    Women who are pregnant, just had a baby or breastfeeding as well as those who have infants and children up to five years old are eligible for the program. To apply, you must have a picture ID, show proof of Louisiana residency and income or currently receive Medicaid, SNAP, or TANF.
