My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Rx Drug Access Partnership, Richmond, VA, USA
Patientswhom we serve are 200% of FPG. They have no insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare and, frequently, barely have resources for survival.
If we could not provide medications to accomodate their treatment, our primary care services would be in vain. You can't tell a diabetic to keep good control of their blood sugar inless they have Insulin or oral glycemic medications and the cabability to check their blood sugar. LIke wise an acute illness becomes complicated unless the appropriate medication is provided.
Providing assessment of the patients' health care needs and the medications to maintain their health status ensures the patient will become a partner in the tratment of their illness and paves the road to wellness.
Having our pharmacy to provide essential medications also attracts volunteer physicians to treaqt our patients. It avois the frustration of evaluatins a patient, developing a treatment plan, and having the plan be void because the patient can't afford the prescribed medication.
