- Rural Health’s Chronic Care Management program is a Medicare sponsored program that allows Rural Health providers to more closely monitor qualifying patients’ health and wellbeing between office visits. Participants must be on Medicare and have two or more chronic conditions.
- Pharmacy Assistance is a program that helps qualifying Rural Health patients get medications they can’t afford on their own.
- The Outreach department links Rural Health patients to non-health care assistance to include things like enrolling in health insurance or getting transportation to Rural Health centers.
The Rural Health pharmacy team is led by Director of Pharmacy Chris Deitch, formerly of H&H Pharmacy Oak Hall. Deitch, a 2004 Virginia Commonwealth School of Pharmacy graduate, has been serving the community since 2007. Deitch is an Eastern Shore of Virginia native.
