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.

I am a consultant pharmacist setting up a pharmacy at Western Tidewater Free Clinic. The pharmacy's goal is to improve service to patients by providing medications at the time of their appointment. RxPartnership has been very helpful in this process by providing me with sample policies, names of other pharmacists to contact and education on how the process works. They have quickly reviewed our proposed policies and made excellent suggestions for improvement. Amy Yarchch made a special visit to the clinic to offer her help. They have also included us in their emails and conference calls as if we were members so that we would feel comfortable with the process.

Rx Partnership is a critical part of the health care safety net for uninsured and low income Virginians. Since 2004, the Partnership has provided over $50 million in free medications from pharmaceutical company partners to 20 Free Clinics in Virginia. The Rx Partnership is the only way these patients can obtain their necessary medications, remain heathy, and stay out of the hospital. As a Board Member, I am so proud of the work of the Partnership....it is making a monumental difference in the lives of tens of thousands of disadvantaged Virginians.

I am the Volunteer manager at the Charlottesville Free Clinic. The Charlottesville Free Clinic is a nonprofit, medical clinic providing quality health care to individuals who do not have health insurance and do not qualify for free care at local hospitals. On each clinic evening, four to six doctors see roughly 20-34 patients. The clinic functions each night due to the effort of 25 to 30 volunteers, both from medical and non-medical backgrounds.
We could not provide drugs to all of our patients without all the support we get from the RXpartnership. Not only can we provide free drugs for those of our patients in need, we also provide great volunteer and learning opportunities.

I serve as a Development Director of a Free Clinic. I recently worked with a patient to access medications through RxPartnership. Without the cooperation from RxP, we would not be able to provide this patient with access to medication critical to his health.
