Medication Programs

We have two medication programs that provide medications at no cost.

Medication Assist Program (M.A.P. )

This program will now be managed by Elizabeth Over who is able to assist patients in obtaining numerous prescription drugs at no charge, this is mostly specific to Medicare patients who find themselves in the "donut" hole. 

Because of the time, paper and postage involved in processing the application there is a $10.00 fee for each application. Example: you may take six prescription medications but three are manufactured by Astra Zeneca and three are manufactured by Pfizer, there would be a $20.00 charge. Each application is good for one full year. 

Blount Rural Health Center also assists patients that have Medicare Part D plans. The process for this assistance changes depending on the pharmaceutical company and when you reach the “donut hole”.

Call Elizabeth Over at 270-265-5600 ext. 219 to see how she can help you with obtaining your medications free.


Indigent Drug Progam (IDP)

Since all KY residents are expected to be covered with some type of insurance Pharmaceutical Companies have basically removed themselves from providing free medications to low income patients. It will be rare that we will be able to obtain free medications. It is VITAL that you seek enrollment in the KY Health Care Exchange program and obtain insurance coverage. If you were enrolled in our medication assist programs previously, you are likely eligible for Medicaid insurance coverage.
