Prescription Assistance Program

The Prescription Assistance Program assists our neighbors in need obtain medication they are unable to afford. The cost of medication, particularly medication for long term or chronic conditions, can be very expensive. Without health insurance many are unable to get their prescription medication. No one should have to choose between much needed medication and other important necessities of life.

The Prescription Assistance Program knows that many pharmaceutical companies provide medications free of charge to those who meet certain qualifications. Each pharmaceutical company has its own set of criteria that applicants must meet to qualify for their programs.

Since 2001, the Prescription Assistance Program has been here to help navigate through each pharmaceutical company's process for acceptance. We collect the required information from each client and work directly with the Pharmaceutical Companies. Our staff and volunteers work with each client individually always mindful of the privacy each client is entitled to.

Application materials and enrollment in the Prescription Assistance Program are free. We do not charge any fees associated with obtaining, completing or submitting an enrollment application.

Some of the criteria required for this program are:

  • Must not have private health insurance or Medicaid;
  • Must meet specific financial criteria;
  • Must be under the care of a licensed prescriber, such as a physician, nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist.

We had an amazing crew of 40 volunteers from Bronco Catholic Association help out at our dining hall tonight! The event included mass, an hour of fast paced service, dinner, and education on what we do as an organization! Thank you!
