Avita Drugs at Trinity Health and Wellness Clinic in Oak Cliff held its grand opening this week. Last year, the company merged with RX Partners, which has a store now also under the Avita name on Oak Lawn Avenue.
The company was founded in 2003 to specialize in HIV medications, according to Mike McBride, vice president of business development. He said that the company’s oldest pharmacy is attached to the NOAIDS Task Force clinic in New Orleans.
Avita also specializes in mental health, transplant and hepatitis medications, but is open to the public to fill any prescription.
McBride said that the company’s partnership with AIDS Arms helps them maximize their funding and stretch their services. In addition to traditional insurance, they are in-network with ADAP and Medicaid, as well as Resource Center Dallas’ co-pay assistance program.
COO Tim Jacobs said, “We accept multiple funding sources many pharmacies don’t want to deal with.”
Avita offers free delivery at no charge.
McBride said the company is putting together a financial assistance program to help patients in need with their co-pays and deductibles.
“We’ll roll that out in the next 30 to 60 days,” McBride said.
