COLUMBUS, Ohio A new prescription assistance service is seeking to provide low-income families and the uninsured with an opportunity to get their prescriptions for $7.
Prescription Hope is providing people with access to over 1,300 brand-name medications for only $7 per prescription per month with delivery to their home or doctor’s office. “This program offers a convenience no other program can match,” said Doug Pierce, founder of Prescription Hope.
Patients receive their medications in a three-month supply directly from the pharmaceutical companies, approximately six to eight weeks from the application date. For added convenience, the program ensures the patient’s next three-month supply arrives on time. Included are commonly prescribed medications for arthritis, allergies, asthma, cancer, hypertension and depression.
“Prescription Hope’s program has reduced that process to a one-page enrollment application that is good for one year,” Pierce said. “Once enrolled, Prescription Hope’s staff stays in contact with each patient and manages the whole process for them, tracking refills and communicating with doctors to ensure medication accuracy.”
The new prescription assistance service excludes those with Medicaid or those that have prescription coverage, Pierce said.
