What Prescription Assistance is Available in North Dakota?
You might be surprised at how many North Dakota residents are living with chronic diseases such as heart disease, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, COPD, multiple sclerosis, and HIV/AIDS. And many of those people are severely challenged to meet high U.S. prescription costs and maintain a steady supply of the medications they depend on to manage their disease and, if possible, slow or prevent its progression.
Fortunately, they may be eligible for prescription assistance from the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the drugs they need or qualify for government-funded health insurance that provides prescription coverage.
All North Dakota residents can gain access to prescription discounts of up to 80% through the North Dakota Rx Card. The card is widely distributed at no cost, and can even be downloaded and printed for immediate use at the many participating pharmacies statewide.
Low-income parents, children, seniors, and disabled North Dakota residents may qualify for the state’s Medicaid program, which provides prescription coverage. However, those who are also enrolled in Medicare Part D are not eligible for prescription coverage under Medicaid.
Some low-income families have an income too high to qualify for Medicaid but not high enough to pay for private or employer-provided health insurance. They may be able to enroll their children in North Dakota’s Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which is called “Healthy Steps.” There is a small monthly premium, and the children receive their prescription medications free of charge.
The North Dakota Aids Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides prescription assistance for HIV/AIDS-related medications to low-income North Dakotans living with HIV/AIDS who meet all eligibility requirements.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
At Simplefill, our mission is to bridge the gap between those in need of prescription assistance and the programs and organizations that can provide it. It’s a mission that enables us to provide some peace of mind to patients and entire families burdened physically, emotionally, and financially by the weight of serious medical problems.
How Does North Dakota Prescription Assistance Work?
Prescription assistance is available to North Dakota residents through two primary channels:
- Pharmaceutical companies that provide the medications they manufacture at very low or no-cost to qualifying individuals, usually through a nonprofit foundation they have established for that specific purpose, or
- The prescription coverage provided by government-funded health insurance programs for low-income residents of the state.
Charitable programs associated with pharmaceutical companies typically provide patients their medications free of charge for up to 12 months; at the end of that time, patients must reapply for further assistance. Government-funded insurance usually covers prescriptions with only a small co-pay, or no co-pay at all.
How to Get Prescription Assistance
For us to begin the process of getting you some prescription assistance, you’ll need to apply for Simplefill membership online or calling us at (877)386-0206. The only other step requiring your active participation is an initial telephone interview with one of our patient advocates. From that point on, all you need to do is sit back and let us do the heavy lifting.
We will use your responses to the patient advocate’s questions to build your Simplefill member profile, which will give us the basis for identifying the best prescription assistance programs for you. We’ll prepare and submit applications to those programs on your behalf, and when you’re accepted, we’ll handle your enrollment as well.
Once you’re receiving prescription assistance, we’ll monitor your situation to make sure you are never without the medication you need. And we’ll update your profile if there are any changes to your treatment plan and find you some prescription assistance for any new medications that may have been added.
