Pharmacist discusses prescription with patient

Through additional oversight, monitoring, financial assistance and care, Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center offers unparalleled pharmaceutical support to Torrance and the surrounding community.

Our Advanced Practice Pharmacists (APPs) are licensed by the California State Board and are dedicated to helping patients understand and manage their varying medications.

They provide both in-person visits for patients with chronic conditions and medication therapy. They work together with your primary care physician to ensure their pharmaceutical aid fits your unique medical needs.

We understand that adhering to medication therapy can be difficult due to high out-of-pocket drug costs. Because of this, our team provides financial assistance to patients with high deductibles and co-pays. Last year (2018), our clinic helped patients with $530,000 in assistance through:

  • Insurance navigation
  • Facilitating prior authorizations
  • Tier exceptions
  • Manufacturer assistance
  • Free drug programs
  • Reduced cost pricing
