Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. today announced that all in-store pharmacies now offer “Refill Sync,” a free service that synchronizes customers’ maintenance medication prescriptions so that all scripts – regardless of refill dates – can be filled at the same time.
“We know our customers don’t have time to make multiple trips to the pharmacy each month to pick up their prescriptions,” said John Fegan, Winn-Dixie’s vice president of pharmacy. “With Refill Sync, it makes no difference when scripts were originally prescribed, we can synchronize them all.”
Customers must opt into the Refill Sync program. Once enrolled, customers choose the most convenient date for prescriptions to be filled and receive a courtesy call a week before to verify any changes. After the prescriptions have been filled, Winn-Dixie pharmacists will call customers to confirm they are ready for pickup. Pharmacists also will provide consultations to customers to discuss any questions, problems or concerns about their health or medication.
Customers are encouraged to call or visit a Winn-Dixie pharmacy to talk to a pharmacist for more information. Customers may find a location at www.winndixie.com.
This service is also available in all BI-LO pharmacies, which are located in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Winn-Dixie and BI-LO pharmacies use the same operating system, which allows pharmacists to access a customer’s information at any location.
