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.

Things look a little different at St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantries these days due to COVID-19. With double the clients we are used to, and a drive through system, the Idaho National Guard and Team Rubicon are now staffing our food pantry. We are immensely thankful for their hard work during this crisis.

We are still in desperate need of financial donations to keep food on the shelves and the lights on so that we can provide for the thousands of Idahoans who are relying on our services. Can we count on you to help us help others?

St. Vincent de Paul is responding to the COVID-19 Pandemic with more than food, rent, and utility assistance! We combed our thrift stores for all the bolts of fabric that we had. That fabric is now in the hands of The Treasure Valley Medical Masks Sewing Angels a group that has sprung up to sew masks for medical professionals and other individuals!

Visit www.svdpid.org to see the other ways we are responding to the crisis.
