Does Premier Drugstore perform COVID testing?
Does Premier Drugstore give COVID shots in the store?
Yes, Premier Drugstore currently gives COVID vaccines in the store on Mondays through Fridays from 9am-5pm and on Saturdays from 9am-1pm. Walk-ins are welcome. We currently do not make appointments.
How much does a COVID shot cost?
COVID shots are no longer covered by the US Government. HRSA had stated that April 5, 2022 would be the deadline to bill free COVID shots but our ability to bill them was shut off with no warning by HRSA’s claim processor on March 30, 2022. We are awaiting guidance on how to get paid for the work we already performed and where uninsured persons can get free COVID shots in the future. We still give COVID shots for no charge even if uninsured. To find out how you can help, click here.
What do I need to bring and do I need an appointment for a COVID vaccine?
Please bring your state issued ID, your insurance card if you have one, and your CDC Vaccination Card if you have previously had a COVID vaccine. We are required to ask for those items.

Does Premier Drugstore offer custom compounding of medications?
Yes, Premier Drugstore offers non-sterile compounding of capsules, creams, ointments, gels, troches, liquids, and suppositories. Premier Drugstore does not offer sterile compounding of injectable drugs.
Does Premier Drugstore accept my insurance?
Premier Drugstore accepts a large number of insurances including all Medicaid and many Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D plans. However, due to increased fees and decreased reimbursement from some Medicare plans, we have had to stop accepting a small number of Medicare. We only ever decline to be contracted with an insurance company if the insurance company is wanting to pay us less than the cost of the drugs we dispense. So, if we do not accept your insurance, that is because your insurance company refuses to reimburse the pharmacy at least the cost of the drugs.
We currently accept almost all commercial plans, which means if you are insured through your work, we probably accept your insurance. To find out if we accept your prescription insurance, call us at 770-635-8509.
Does Premier Drugstore offer bubble-packaging of prescription medicine filled at other pharmacies such as a mail order pharmacy?
Premier Drugstore does not offer bubble-packaging for medications filled at other pharmacies. Current regulations require so much paperwork for repackaging of medications from another pharmacy that it is not possible for Premier Drugstore to repackage medications in bubble-packaging for customers.
Does Premier Drugstore offer bubble-packaging of prescription medicine filled at Premier Drugstore?
Due to rising costs of goods but decreasing reimbursement rates from PBMs and insurance companies, we have been unable to find a way to continue to profitably offer this service without passing on a prohibitively large cost to the consumer. Therefore, we no longer offer this service to new customers.
