How do you know what medication(s) to order?

When we enroll you in the Long Term Prescription Assistance program, we first request a Medication List from your doctor(s). We use the information from that list to determine if any pharmaceutical companies offer your medications through the Long Term programs. If any of your medications qualify, we complete the application(s) for you and send all the necessary information to your doctor to sign and submit to the pharmaceutical company.

^

How do I know if my medication qualifies for the Long Term program?

We research your medications both by the brand and generic names. We use the NeedyMeds website, which you can access here to determine if your medication would qualify. If you need help navigating the website, call or visit our office.

^

How long does this process take?

Generally the process for an initial application for enrollment takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks from the time we begin researching until you receive your medication(s) in the mail. A reorder typically takes 1-3 weeks depending on the medication. We suggest you contact our office for a reorder when you begin your last 30-day supply of medication to ensure you do not run out of medication before your next supply is delivered.

^

How much medication do I receive?

Once your enrollment begins, you qualify for one (1) years' worth of medication for free, as long as you do not obtain prescription insurance during that time. Typically in one (1) order you will receive a 90-day supply of your medication and you will be responsible for contacting our office when you need a refill for your next 90-day supply.
