Rx Partnership Grant
Rx Partnership Provides Life-Saving Medications to Those in Need
There’s a new program being introduced by Rx Partnership in Virginia that will provide critically needed generic medications at no charge to patients served by free clinics and community health centers. Dominion Energy is proud to support the initiative.
Rx Partnership provided more than 50,000 free prescriptions for 10,614 low-income, uninsured patients in 2016, representing a retail value of about $11.5 million. With the new Access to Medication Program covering the cost of generic drugs, these numbers are expected to increase significantly in 2017.
“We are so pleased to help Rx Partnership do more of what it does best: provide life-saving medicines to improve the lives of people across Virginia,” said Hunter A. Applewhite, president of the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation.
The program will be phased in across Virginia, with Olde Towne Medical & Dental Center in Williamsburg and Lloyd F. Moss Free Clinic in Fredericksburg the first sites to offer the program. Additional sites will be added beginning July 1.
