Roane Medical Center Provides Assistance with Patient Medication Costs

Posted on October 14, 2016

Roane Medical Center is pleased to announce the Patient Drug Assistance Program is accepting new patients. With or without prescription medication insurance, costs associated with monthly maintenance medication can be crippling. This free and confidential program helps to connect qualifying patients with their medications directly from the manufacturer at little to no cost.

 “By providing assistance with medications to our patients, we are able to help promote wellness and wellbeing throughout our community. We understand that medications are sometimes difficult to afford,” says Ryan Reddick, Director of Pharmacy at Roane Medical Center. “This program is unique to our county and we hope to get the word out that we are here to help,” says Reddick.

The Patient Drug Assistance Program was started in nearly a decade ago, and is now funded through the Covenant Health Foundation. Pharmacy Advocate, Anash Parmar, meets with patients at Roane Medical Center to connect with assistance directly from pharmaceutical companies at little or no cost. Anash will help co-ordinate paperwork to qualify for the programs and assist in medication refills. A photo ID, Social Security card, prescription insurance information, physician prescriptions, and proof of income (Tax Return, Social Security, Disability, etc.) are all that is needed to help get you started. The program does not dispense, prescribe, or provide money to pay for medications. No pain medications are covered by this program.

Roane Medical Center is equipped with modern technologies and expert staff to provide you the best possible patient care. You can depend on Roane Medical Center to be a partner in caring for you and your family. We continue to grow our services, attract new physicians, and add advanced technology, all while sharing our best practices within the Covenant Health system.
