What Prescription Assistance is Available in West Virginia?
Even chronically ill West Virginians who have health insurance can find it difficult, even impossible, to pay for the often costly medications required to manage conditions such as COPD, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, HIV/AIDS, and others. Having health insurance is not enough when co-pays are high. They may find that they are eligible for prescription assistance from the manufacturers of the drugs they must take or from a health insurance program that is funded by the government.
- The West Virginia Rx Card is available at no cost to all residents of the state, regardless of income, age, or health status. It provides a discount averaging 30% that can be as high as 80% for some medications. You can use it for any medication that is not covered by your insurance plan.
- West Virginia’s Medicaid program is health insurance jointly funded by the state and federal governments. It includes prescription coverage for qualified low-income West Virginians.
- The West Virginia Children’s Health Insurance Program, WVCHIP, is a low-cost government-funded insurance plan that provides prescription coverage for children from low-income families that are not eligible for Medicaid.
- West Virginia’s AIDS Drug Assistance Program, ADAP, gives low-income HIV-infected West Virginians who meet all eligibility requirements access to low- or no-cost AIDS-related medications.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill closes the gap between West Virginians who need prescription assistance and sources offering the help they need. For people with chronic illnesses and their family members, finding a way to cover or greatly reduce their prescription costs can make an enormous difference. Financial stress not only takes a toll on the quality of life for the entire household. It also can adversely affect physical health, exacerbate symptoms, and lead to hasten disease progression. We aim to help relieve that stress.
How Does West Virginia Prescription Assistance Work?
Companies like Abbot, Johnson & Johnson, Abbvie, Pfizer, and Bristol Meyers Squib among others usually receive their medications free of charge for 12 months, after which they must requalify. West Virginians who qualify for a government-funded insurance plan such as Medicaid will have prescription coverage with no more than a nominal co-pay.
