Faith Community Health is able to provide most prescription needs for a simple $10 monthly administrative fee for our patients who meet eligibility requirements. We work with the Dispensary of Hope and Patient Assistance Programs available through drug manufacturers to supply non-narcotic prescription needs for our patients.
For the convenience of our patients, the FAiTH Medication Office is open Monday through Friday during regular business hours. Prescriptions may be filled at area pharmacies if patients prefer or if we are unable to supply a particular need. We do not dispense narcotics and we encourage patients to consider alternative therapies when they are available. FAiTH offers patient education to promote wellness of spirit, mind, and body.
For patients with chronic illnesses requiring expensive long term medications, our medication office can be a lifesaver, allowing patients to continue providing for their families.
We are now able to provide treatment for Hepatitis C, leading to high rates of cure for many people. The cost for these meds typically exceeds $80,000, but our patients get what they need for our $10 monthly fee.
We are able to make this possible because of our status as a nonprofit charitable clinic. We benefit from hundreds of hours donated every year by pharmacists and pharmacy students who provide exceptional care in our dispensary. Our patients are able to receive intensive pharmaceutical counseling and follow up to ensure that their medications are appropriate, effective, and are being taken as prescribed.
FAiTH patients save about $3,000 per year on prescriptions, on average, far more than they could afford to pay on their own. Patients with Diabetes, COPD, heart conditions and mental health disorders like anxiety and depression benefit tremendously from access to the prescriptions they need to maintain quality of life, thanks to our donors who care and know that a healthy community is better for everyone.
