Here is a list of FAQs about the Rite-Aid closure & Eagle Pharmacy option in Farwell.

What is happening to Rite-Aid?

Rite-Aid is currently going through bankruptcy proceedings and as a result, they are closing ALL of their Michigan locations. It is my understanding this will be completed by the end of August in a roll out fashion. Walgreens has purchased the majority of the prescription files which means your Rite-Aid prescriptions will be transferred to a Walgreens Pharmacy upon closing.

What if I do not want to get my prescriptions at Walgreens?

Rite-Aid patients may transfer their prescriptions to a different pharmacy.

How can I transfer my prescriptions to Eagle Pharmacy?

If you wish to have your prescriptions transferred to Eagle Pharmacy, simply call our store at 989-588-2900 and request to have your prescription file transferred. We will call your Rite-Aid store and request the transfer and place your prescription file in our system to be available for when they are due to be filled. (All prescriptions are simply placed on hold unless you are requesting to have it filled) It is HIGHLY recommended to transfer your prescription file to Eagle Pharmacy BEFORE it is transferred to Walgreens. If you wait until AFTER your file is transferred to Walgreens, we can still call the Walgreens store to transfer your file to Eagle, but there may be a delay in getting the file.

Why should I transfer my file BEFORE the Rite-Aid store closes?

Based on our experience from current Rite-Aid closures, there has been difficulty in obtaining the prescription files in a timely manner from the transferring pharmacy AFTER the closure. We have increased OUR staffing to accommodate the increased volume and we are diligent in requesting patient files, but we are unable to fill a prescription until the transferring pharmacy transfers your prescription to us.

Does Eagle Pharmacy take my insurance?

Eagle Pharmacy takes most insurance plans, including all Michigan Medicaid plans and Medicare Prescription Plans and Advantage Plans.

Why should I choose Eagle Pharmacy?

Eagle Pharmacy is a locally owned, independent pharmacy centered on your health and wellbeing. You will find our staff to be friendly, helpful and looking out for your best interest. Eagle Pharmacy offers a drive thru window service, a pharmacy phone app, text notification and a med sync program. We also offer compounded prescriptions mailed directly to your door. Also, our new health insurance agency can make sure you are on the best health plan to suit your needs.
