Agape Health Services to open 340B pharmacy in Plymouth

PLYMOUTH, N.C. (WITN) – A new pharmacy is coming to Plymouth that promises to increase access to much-needed medicines.

Agape Health Services announced on Tuesday that it will be opening a 340B pharmacy on Adams Street in Plymouth this month.

Agape Health Services said that the pharmacy will offer discounted prescription medications solely to patients of Agape Health Services.

According to the Health Resources and Services Administration, the 340B Program enables covered entities to stretch federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services. Manufacturers participating in Medicaid agree to provide outpatient drugs to covered entities at significantly reduced prices.

Agape Health Services also has 340B pharmacies in Williamston and Washington.

The Plymouth location is scheduled to open on February 8th.
