Sobeys pharmacies join Coughlin PPN

Membership in Coughlin & Associates Ltd.’s Preferred Provider Network (PPN) of pharmacies has grown by more than 10 per cent with the addition of almost 50 Sobeys, FreshCo and Foodland pharmacies to the network.

The new pharmacies, which are operated by the Sobeys grocery chain, are located throughout southern Ontario, from Windsor through to the Ottawa area.

With the addition of the Sobeys-operated pharmacies, PPN membership totals almost 570 pharmacies, making Coughlin’s PPN one of the largest preferred provider pharmacy networks in Ontario.

PPN member pharmacies agree to limit dispensing fees to the Ontario Drug Benefit plan maximum (currently $8.40 per prescription in most areas) and cap the mark-up on the ingredient costs of dispensed drugs.  To enjoy the savings available through the Coughlin PPN, employees just have to present their PPN or pay direct drug cards at the participating pharmacy when filling their prescriptions.  

Now in its 17th year of operation, Coughlin’s PPN has grown from fewer than 30 pharmacies located almost exclusively in the Ottawa-Carleton region.  It includes both independent family-owned pharmacies as well as medium and large pharmacy chains located in popular grocery outlets.

The Sobeys pharmacy outlets can be found in the following locations: http://www.coughlin.ca/en/locator.aspx
