Prescriptions and MedsHelp

If you are unable to afford important prescription medications, the Free Clinic may be able to help. To receive prescription assistance from the Free Clinic, you must first be enrolled as a Free Clinic patient with current income verification on file, as explained here: Become a Patient

 

Prescriptions

If your Free Clinic healthcare provider determines that you need prescription medication to manage a health condition, he/she will write you a prescription which can be filled at our recommended pharmacy:

 

Hill City Pharmacy at the Community Access Network

800 5th Street, Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd

Lynchburg, VA 24504

 

Hill City Pharmacy and the Free Clinic are often able to get prescriptions for Free Clinic Patients at low or no cost to the patient. Also, thanks to the support of our donors, the Free Clinic spends $55,000 annually to purchase prescriptions for our patients. Donate to help us access prescriptions for patients

 

Donors: Please note that state regulations prohibit the Free Clinic from accepting donated medications from the community. Contact your pharmacy for safe disposal guidelines.

 

MedsHelp  

Our innovative MedsHelp program helps low-income Free Clinic and Community Access Network patients to obtain their prescription medication. We help patients with the application process for pharmaceutical companies’ Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs). These programs provide medications at no cost. Because applications for PAPs are submitted to pharmaceutical companies for approval, it can take 4 to 6 weeks to receive prescription medications.

 

Eligibility for MedsHelp and Patient Assistance Programs is different from eligibility for other Free Clinic services. Call 434-847-5866 x25 for information about specific PAP eligibility criteria.
