Prescription Assistance Programs
Making medications more affordable and better managed for NC citizens.
The average senior citizen spends more than $1,700 per year on
prescription drugs. And despite this group's typical dependence on
limited and/or fixed incomes, a great deal of that medication is paid
for out of their own pockets. Adding to this burden, the cost and
number of prescriptions have increased dramatically in recent years. Seniors taking
multiple medications are at risk for adverse reactions from mixing
drugs because their care is not coordinated.
HWTF recognizes the acute need for prescription assistance and medication therapy management for North Carolina citizens. Learn more about the progress that HWTF programs are making today:
