Local business women, team up at Pharmacy.com, to offer help in multiple languages

 

Yes, it's a compounding pharmacy, but for Portland residents, it's a help center, a community center and now, a solution to the tangle of confusion surrounding the health care system, especially Medicare.

 

Owner Jasmin Nyung, Ph.D. believes in putting her customers first and that education is a powerful tool. "It's so important to provide an accurate, ethical resource especially during health plan enrollment season. My customers are flooded with advertisements in the mail and on television - - combined with mailings from the state, it leads to a lot of confusion," says Dr.

Nyung.

 

As a scientist and compounding pharmacist her local  business, Pharmacy .com  is a  unique  model in the prescription industry. In order to assist the multicultural Portland residents who represent a significant customer base, Dr. Nyung, employs pharmaceutical staff who speak Spanish, English, Chinese, Russian and Vietnamese.

 

Beginning Thurs. Nov. 8 from 11 in the morning until 1 p.m. every (Thursday), Dr. Nuing's colleague, health care advocate Mara Woloshin will be on site to explain and assist customers, family members and friends about benefits or changes in individual health plans. This walk-in educational and advocacy resource is free. Woloshin, has been a Medicare and Medicaid specialist since 2006 when she was engaged by the nonprofit National Pharmaceutical Association as an Oregon and Washington spokesperson for the rollout of Medicare Part D (the prescription drug benefit).

 

Woloshin, a licensed health agent in Oregon and Washington state believes that education empowers individuals about their health care choices. She consults with individuals, health plans  and hospitals on organizational issues, is a specialist in federal  marketing  compliance  and speaks on nutrition and health issues at nonprofit meal centers and at senior program centers.

 

"As an independent agent, yes, I can enroll folks in a health plan. However, through outreach, I  am able to provide unbiased Medicare/Medicaid education and help beneficiaries understand benefits they may be entitled to," says Woloshin.

 

In 2016 Woloshin published a book on federal Medicare marketing compliance for sales organizations. In addition to consulting, she speaks nationally on Medicare and Medicaid diversity, marketing, education and grassroots outreach.

 

Pharmacy.com, 7901 SE Powell Blvd Portland, OR 97206 is open weekdays from 9:00am  - 6:00pm, and weekends from 10:00am - 4:00pm (503) 384-2475. Free home delivery is available.
