New Hampshire Rx Drug Card
New Hampshire residents have seen a dramatic increase in health care spending in the last 10 years. The New America Foundation released a report in 2009 that indicates that more than half of the people will be spending 35 percent of their income for health insurance by the year 2016. This is absolutely crazy says Michael, Regional Outreach Coordinator.
We are in a time that people are not taking their medications because they are lacking prescription coverage. The cost of prescription drugs is on the rise which makes it almost impossible for someone to be able to afford their meds.
Michael says that he wishes that more people knew about the assistance programs that are available out there. The
Community Assistance Program has two relief programs. The first program offers a free discount drug card that provides savings between 15 and 85 percent for anyone without prescription coverage.
The second program offers assistance for New Hampshire residents as well as others throughout the US who still can?t afford their medications even when using the drug card. The CAP program can help someone receive their meds for free as long as they meet the income qualifications which are over 200 percent of the poverty level. There is a small processing fee of $20.00 dollars per script but this is miniscule in comparison to the high cost of the medications.
The discount drug cards are offered through our Community Assistance Program and can be sent directly to you. These cards can?be printed out at our website by clicking on the “Print Now” button.
