Pharmacy Assistance Fact Sheet

Where to start:

Your Primary Care Physician or Clinic:

Please speak with your primary care physician and clinic staff about resources available to help you with your prescription medications.

The Pharmacy Counter:

The Pharmacy Counter, a locally owned pharmacy, offers special “We Care Pricing” to CareNet members for prescription medications, medical supplies and home medical equipment.

Warning:

There are legitimate companies that charge for helping you obtain free or lower cost medications. These companies fill out and submit applications, track your prescriptions and provide other valuable services. You will find some of these listed below. However, you do not need to pay for information about these companies or other prescription assistance programs. This information is free from many good sources including your doctor, CareNet and many Internet sites.

Avoid the following:

Companies charging money to find out if you can get free medications.
Companies charging money with a promise they will find you free medications.

If you have any questions about a website or company, ask your health care provider.
