NC MedAssist Program: mail order central pharmacy: meds 4 free!: 1-866-331-1348

From a new blog with great information: http://www.carolinapartners.com/blog/

"Every Raleigh Psychiatrist, Every Durham Psychiatrist, Every Cary Psychiatrist and Every Chapel Hill Psychiatrist Should Know About the NC MedAssist Program

People in North Carolina who are unable to afford their medicines can now get some of them for free. The NC MedAssist program has created a mail-order central pharmacy to provide medications for free. Both generics and brand name drugs are covered. With a shout-out to Big Pharma for donating the pharmaceuticals in the first place! In 2009, the state rolled out a pilot program to give low-income North Carolinians access to needed prescription drugs. Now that program has been expanded state-wide, so I guess it has been a success thus far. The project was developed as a partnership between the NC Attorney General’s Office, NC Association of Free Clinics, and NC MedAssist. Among other medications available under NC MedAssist, low-income patients will have access to: Antipsychotics: Zyprexa, Haldol, and Seroquel; Antidepressants: Cymbalta, Prozac, Nortioptyline, and Trazadone Others: Lithium, Depakote, Clonidine, and Hydroxyzine. This program is available to North Carolinians, both adults and children, living at or below 200% of the federal poverty line; adults and children who do not qualify for Medicaid, VA, or private insurance; and/or Medicare Part D participants who fall in the infamous “Donut Hole.” One can enroll in NC MedAssist by downloading an enrollment packet at www.medassist.org, or by calling 1-866-331-1348....."
