Valued DGD Patients, Family and Friends,
Everyone is welcome to use DGD Clinic Pharmacy for their generic prescriptions.
We don’t use insurance but can still save you money and time.
If you have high deductibles, high copays or high-tier pricing,
compare your costs at DGD Pharmacy.
Medicare Part D Patients, even if you pay $0 to mail-order,
mail-order could be taking more than necessary from your prescription benefit than if you paid our low flat 6-month or 12-month prescription prices.
Call your insurance or look at your statements to find out the dollar amount being deducted from your annual benefit for medications you see below. Your annual benefit might be used more effectively if you use DGD Pharmacy.
For example, if $150 is deducted every 90 days for Rosuvastatin from your insurance benefit, you could be saving $515 a year using DGD Pharmacy,
a big savings that could be used toward other non-generic prescriptions.
DGD Pharmacy can mail your prescriptions to your home for $4.
Mailed prescriptions are usually received within 24 hours from the order date.
Here are some FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about the DGD Clinic
Pharmacy, located in-house at the DGD Clinic.
Currently no, BUT PATIENTS ARE SAVING MONEY AT DGD CLINIC PHARMACY, even without insurance. AND PATIENTS ARE SAVING TIME because of the built-in convenience. Patients keep choosing DGD Clinic Pharmacy because of the convenience of keeping 6-month and 12-month medication supplies on hand. Fill and purchase three prescriptions together and save an additional $2.00 per prescription. ($2-promotional offer valid on in-clinic prescription purchases only. Not applicable to mailed prescriptions.)
Prescriptions are routinely ready within minutes of the end of your office visit. Refills are routinely ready within minutes of your phoned-in or in-person requests. You will likely receive a call as you are checking-out from your appointment that your prescriptions are ready for pick-up. These calls will appear on your phone as the DGD Clinic, 210-614-8612.
We can order items not currently listed. Call 210-614-8615 for more details or come by the pharmacy to inquire while you’re waiting to be seen. We will be happy to quote you a price.
You may fill any time, including the day of your appointment, at DGD Pharmacy, no matter what’s at home. At DGD Pharmacy, you’re free from your insurance’s restrictions, so you may get it when it’s more convenient for you, not more convenient for your insurance. If you need it early for vacation, work travel, because you live outside of San Antonio or any distance from the clinic, or it’s just more convenient, you are welcome to fill your prescriptions. Please call 210-614-8615 from home or from your seat in the lobby to place your order. Often, your refills will be ready-for-pick-up BEFORE you are called back to see your doctor or nurse practitioner!
For a $4 fee*, your prescription refills can be mailed to you. Likewise, you have the option of calling 210-614-8615 to have your script transferred elsewhere. Remember, at DGD Pharmacy, your insurance can’t block an early refill, so if you are in clinic for a follow up, don’t hesitate to pick up an early refill. (*$8 mail fee for larger bulky orders.)
Without insurance, your cost for insulin (like Toujeo® or Humalog®), other injectables (like Trulicity®or Ozempic ®), BRANDED items (like Jardiance®, Farxiga® or Vascepa®), or testing supplies (like FreeStyle Libre®, OneTouch Verio®, or AccuChek®) would be hundreds to thousands of dollars per month. It is more advantageous for you to fill these items elsewhere using your insurance.
BUT FOR ORAL GENERIC MAINTENANCE MEDICATIONS, IT JUST MAKES SENSE TO USE DGD PHARMACY FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF PATIENTS.
If it’s on the list or can be ordered (see above) just present a valid written prescription to DGD Pharmacy. Alternatively, you can call 210-614-8615 and the pharmacist can call your doctor to request a new prescription on your behalf.
You are welcome to fill your prescriptions at DGD Clinic Pharmacy. Anyone interested in our cost-savings plan, with valid prescriptions, whether or not seen by a DGD provider, is welcome. Family and friends are welcome!
Yes, for a $4 fee*, prescriptions can be mailed to your home and are typically delivered within 24 hours. (*$8 fee for larger bulky orders.)
DGD Pharmacy doesn’t fill 30-day prescriptions but can fill 90-day prescriptions. The cost for a 90-day supply is approximately half of the 180-day cost, rounding up to the nearest whole dollar. (Example: 90-days of ROSUVASTATIN would cost $24.)
Medication adherence is a well-studied factor in health outcomes of patients. When patients have a reliable and consistent supply of medication, there is greater adherence to medication regimens, resulting in improved health outcomes. The most important reason the DGD Pharmacy was established was to improve patient medication adherence by removing two common barriers to medication: cost and convenience. Prescriptions for 6 and 12 months remove the burden of frequent trips to the pharmacy to obtain important medications. DGD Clinic passes on substantial discounts for prescriptions, often equal to or less than what patients pay using their insurance.
