Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

MedAssist of Mecklenburg's programs include educational workshops for our clients and couseling on medications. Most of our efforts revolve around accessing free prescription medications from Patients Assistance Programs run by major pharmaceutical companies to give to our clients who cannot afford to pay for them out of pocket.

Population(s) Served

NC MedAssist operates a licensed pharmacy that provides free prescription medication to low-income, uninsured residents across North Carolina.  This is accomplished by partnering with free clinics and other service organizations so they can refer their clients to us.  We also serve clients referred from DSS, health departments, physician's offices, emergency rooms and self-referals who may have heard about us through word of mouth.  Providing access to life-saving medications lowers dependency on the emergency room as a medical home and increases health outcomes to remain working and paying bills.
