HIV Drug Assistance PROGRAMS

We have the expertise to help you signup for financial assistance.

Are you uninsured? If you do not have health coverage, are your prescription co-pays or other co-insurance costs prohibitively expensive? Or does your health plan come with high medication deductibles that you can’t afford?

The pharmacists at Drug Mart are experts in HIV therapy management and finding immediate coverage. Call us at (800) 877-0337.

Help Maybe Available From The Following:

Different assistance programs have different eligibility criteria based on the federal poverty level (FPL). Eligibility for this year is based on last year’s income. The figure is adjusted based on family or household size. A complete table is available here. Unless otherwise stated, companies ask for verification of income, usually in the form of a federal income tax return. Companies also generally consider household income, meaning that a married couple that files joint tax returns will be judged on their combined income. People who file individual income taxes will only have their individual income considered. In many cases, if you are told you are ineligible for assistance, you can appeal to have the decision reversed.

Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs)

Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) offer free or low-cost HIV medications to people who do not qualify for any other insurance or assistance programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, or AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs).

In 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), along with seven pharmaceutical companies, the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD), and community stakeholders developed a common patient assistance program application that can be used by both providers and patients. Before, patients and advocates had to fill out different sets of paperwork for each company; the new application should help simplify this process, however the form still has to be sent to each company program you are applying to for assistance.

I have known Vik and his family since they opened. They have bright back what it means to have a home town family... operated pharmacy. He remembers you, that you have had a baby etc. He is compassionate and always goes above and beyond. He trains his staff to pursue their own dreams. Some have gone on to school. My prayer is that God gives him a long healthy life and that his business continues to prosper. Oh and BTW if you move he does mail order so he can continue to be your pharmacist no need to switch!read more
