HERE FOR ALL STAGES OF LIFE
We understand long term care
We know that health care today is more complex than it has ever been. It's about more than just dispensing and packaging medication — it's about keeping costs low, having regular deliveries, integrating technology to make life easier, and so much more.
Golden Plains Pharmacy Services is the long-term care division of Cooper Drug Store. Started in 2009 to meet the growing needs of our long-term care patients, Golden Plains Pharmacy Services is locally owned and operated in Augusta, Kansas. We want to improve patient outcomes and ease facilities' burdens. We care about our communities, we are here to help you!
Golden Plains is made up of a courteous, professional staff who have extensive experience in long term care. Our staff will see that your needs are our primary concern. We can customize a system that will be simple for your staff to operate while remaining cost effective and accountable.

With Golden Plains Pharmacy Services, you won’t need to wonder — you can trust that you’re getting the best care possible.
At Golden Plains Pharmacy Services, we know our products are only as good as the people who are here to provide them. That is why we have employed a staff of knowledgeable, friendly individuals who make the Golden Plains Pharmacy Services team a strong one. If you ever have questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to call on one of our team members for guidance.
Our pharmacy prices on prescription and non-prescription items are highly competitive and reflect our commitment to provide our patients and their families a great value. We participate in many insurance programs and provide third-party billing services whenever possible. In addition, we offer free Medicare Part D Guidance and assistance in the enrollment process.
Multiple Dispensing Options
We want to make it as easy as possible to take medications at the right dose and the right time, which is why we offer multiple compliance packaging options based on the patient's specific needs: traditional packaging, blister packs, and multi-dose strip packaging. They are designed to help keep residents safe, reduce medication errors, aid nursing staff in administration, and maintain regulatory compliance. Each order is packaged for individualized dosage and cross-checked for interactions and allergies.
We know the importance of having the medications you need for your residents available when you need them. We offer delivery so that you can count on consistent service with minimal hassle for your staff. Depending on certain factors, we may deliver daily Monday through Saturday for FREE.

For facility staff, families, and residents, we take the burden of insurance questions off your shoulders. We have dedicated staff available to directly answer questions daily.
Because of our experience, we increase satisfaction, decrease costs, bill insurance plans directly, coordinate with prescribers to ensure residents’ medications are covered, obtain pre-authorizations, and initiate refills.
As your residents' needs change, it's important that the insurance they have evolves to match it. Let us help with our free Medicare Part D open enrollment assistance.
We know the medications, we know the industry, and we prioritize your residents' health. Reach out for a free review any time during open enrollment (Oct. 15 to Dec. 7).
An important part of helping residents stay adherent to their medication regimen is making sure they understand what they are taking. We will work with you, your residents, and their families to ensure everyone has a thorough understanding of how, when, and why to take each medication.
We also will check for drug interactions, work to decrease side effects, find less expensive alternatives.
