Prescription assistance

Every major pharmaceutical company has a patient assistance program that provides free prescription medications to eligible patients. Arbor Health's Prescription Assistance Program helps eligible uninsured patients of all ages apply for these medications.

Eligibility requirements

  • The patient must be a United States citizen.
  • The patient must not have any outside assistance in paying for medications, (e.g., Medicaid, VA or private insurance).
  • Your monthly household income must be less than:
    • Household of 1: $1,805.
    • Household of 2: $2,428.
    • Household of 3: $3,051.

How does it work?

We will complete one application for each medication that you are currently taking. The application needs to be signed by you and your physician. The applications are then sent to the pharmaceutical companies. Once the application has been reviewed and approved, the medication will be shipped out. In most cases, the medication is sent to your physician's office. A few companies send the medications directly to your house, and a few companies allow you to pick up the medications at the pharmacy.

You should plan on four-to-six weeks from the time the application is mailed to when you receive your medications. Make sure you have enough medication to hold you over until then.
