Montgomery County residents in need of help maintaining their prescriptions can find relief at Community Action Partnership. The agency has partnered with Reach Out Montgomery County to provide pharmaceutical assistance to individuals without health insurance. The project began August 1, and will run through September 30, or until all funds have been depleted.
“Our goal is to prevent the gap in access to medication that arises because of an individual’s inability to pay,” said Deborah Ferguson, Community Action Partnership’s Director of Outreach and Social Services.
Through the prescription assistance program, eligible individuals may receive a one-time payment for a 90-day supply of their prescriptions. Individuals with an insulin or inhaler prescription may receive three 30-day refills.
“Partnering with the Reach Out Montgomery County pharmacy allows us to connect directly and quickly with customers whom we know can benefit from the program. It’s a great collaboration,” Ferguson noted.
To receive prescription assistance, applicants must:
- Reside in Montgomery County
- Have a household income that falls at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (for a household of four, this would be $44,100 or less).
- Have a current prescription from Ohio that is less than 30 days old.
Interested persons can walk-in at Community Action Partnership’s Main Street location, located at 719 S. Main Street. Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Applicants must have a photo identification, proof of income for the past three months and Social Security Cards for anyone residing in their household.
