In the Charlottesville region, over 16,000 people are estimated to be uninsured. Prescription Assistance Programs (PAPs), provided nationally by most drug companies, offer free medications to low income, uninsured persons with long term, chronic conditions requiring medications. However, applying for these programs is often very confusing. Through support from the Virginia Health Care Foundation (VHCF) and Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital the United Way has established the RxRelief Program.
Eligibility Requirements include low to moderate income and no prescription drug coverage. Some exclusions apply for insured persons with very high deductibles.
Single or lined bifocal glasses are available for adults and children. Patients must meet income guidelines.
