It has been announced that Tillamook Pharmacy in Tillamook will close their doors and stop filling prescriptions on September 6, 2023. All prescriptions will be transferred in bulk to a local Fred Meyer Pharmacy, which is in-network. We estimate around 1,000 members may be disrupted by this change.
Tillamook Pharmacy made the announcement on August 22, 2023. Their last day of business will be September 6, 2023, until 5 p.m.
No, it affects both Columbia Pacific CCO (Medicaid) and CareOregon Advantage (Medicare) members. All patients (including those outside of Columbia Pacific CCO or COA) are also impacted as this is a pharmacy closure (not a CareOregon network contracting issue).
Yes. We understand, by default, all prescriptions will be transferred to the local Fred Meyer Pharmacy on September 7, 2023. New and transferred prescriptions should pay as they were previously paying at Tillamook Pharmacy. As a result of this sudden new prescription volume, Fred Meyer is likely to be very busy. Please allow extra time to transfer and fill your prescriptions.

Yes, Optum mail order pharmacy is available. Members can call them at 800-356-3477. For a local home delivery option, consider OHSU Creekside pharmacy. Members can call them at 503-346-3370. You may also contact your local pharmacy and ask if they offer home delivery.
A mailing from Columbia Pacific CCO and/or CareOregon Advantage will be sent to all members with a fill at Tillamook Pharmacy in the previous 90 days. Due to the size of the mailing and limited notice, we do not expect this mailing to be delivered much before the September 6, 2023 closure date. Certain high-risk members may be targeted for more direct care coordination.
