Local clinics remind Virginians about availability of low- and no-cost prescriptions
Concerns about cost cause many to not refill prescriptions
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - With recent news that drug manufacturer Eli Lilly & Co. will reduce the cost of insulin for patients, leaders with the Virginia Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (VAFCC) are reminding Virginians about the availability of low and no-cost prescriptions available at local clinics.
One in four Virginians reports not filling prescriptions or cutting pills in half due to concerns about cost, according to a survey by Altarum’s Healthcare Value Hub, an initiative focused on addressing high healthcare prices.
Here @ Home welcomes James Black the Pharmacist-in-Charge at the Bradley Free Clinic to talk about how Virginia’s Free and Charitable Clinics, including Bradley Free Clinic, are offering prescription medications through a variety of programs and partnerships to help patients in Virginia with low incomes access the medication they need to stay healthy.
