NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iMedicare, the leading Medicare platform for community pharmacies, and Lewis Drug, the 45 store neighborhood pharmacy spanning across South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota, announced their partnership today to integrate the iMedicare platform into its pharmacy locations.
The affiliation between the two companies will provide Lewis Drug customers with the top software service for finding and switching Medicare plans during the Open Enrollment Period, and continue to offer the resource throughout the year.
