What are the benefits of the Program?
The Mission Hospital Medication Assistance Program is designed to help low-income, uninsured patients access the medications they need. The program provides financial assistance to eligible patients who are enrolled in Medicaid or who are otherwise unable to afford their medications.
Patients who are enrolled in the program will receive a discount on their medications. The program also offers other benefits, such as free transportation to and from appointments, and access to care coordinators who can help patients navigate the often complex world of health care
What are the drawbacks of the Program?
The Mission Hospital Medication Assistance Program has helped many people in our community afford their medications. However, the program has some drawbacks.
The first drawback is that the program is only available to residents of Mission Hospital. This means that people who live outside of our hospital’s service area cannot participate in the program.
Another drawback is that the program only covers medications that are prescribed by a Mission Hospital doctor. This means that people who get their care from another hospital or Health Care provider will not be able to participate in the program.
Lastly, the program only covers medications that are FDA-approved. This means that there are some medications that people might need that they will not be able to get through the program.
Despite these drawbacks, the Mission Hospital Medication Assistance Program has helped many people in our community afford their medications. If you or someone you know needs assistance paying for medication, please contact our hospital’s financial assistance office.
