VCU Health CMH offers medication assistance program

Published 8:45 am Thursday, August 18, 2016

VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital, in South Hill, has a program that may help residents afford their medications.

VCU Health CMH’s Pharmacy Connection Program helps eligible patients of the VCU Health CMH coverage area obtain free prescription medication. All patients, regardless of age who are uninsured or underinsured, as well as patients with Medicare Part D who have reached the coverage gap, are eligible. Eligibility is based on household income and pharmaceutical manufacturers’ guidelines.

The program has patient advocates who are available to talk with patients to determine if they are eligible for the program. The patient advocate works with the patient’s physician and contacts the drug manufacturer to obtain the medication for qualifying patients. 

There is no charge for this service. 

The Pharmacy Connection Office is located in the CMH Leggett Center at 300 Ferrell St. in South Hill. For more information about this program, call Melissa Morris at (434) 774-2584.
