The NAFC and Rx Outreach Partner to Reduce Medication Prices and Increase Access for the Underserved
Printable Version Alexandria, VA – The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) is partnering with Rx Outreach to help reduce the cost of medications for low-income individuals and households. Access to affordable medications continues to be a major issue facing the medically underserved throughout the nation. Despite the generous efforts of those who care and numerous healthcare programs, too many people in this country still struggle with having to choose between medication and life’s other essentials like food, shelter and transportation. Rx Outreach has agreed to expand its Preferred Clinic Program to include more NAFC members. As a Preferred Clinic, NAFC members can benefit from reduced pricing on a new NAFC / Rx Outreach formulary, monthly prescription billing, access to the Rx Outreach “Clinic Portal”, and more at no extra cost to the clinic or patient. “As a non-profit, mail-order pharmacy, our prices on these medications are already low and our mission will keep them that way,” says Darryl Munden, President of Rx Outreach. “It’s why we were founded. It’s what we strive to insure every day. Partnering with NAFC to reduce our prices even further is another example of our mission at work. We provide access to affordable medication for people in need and look forward to helping to change more lives.” NAFC Chief Executive Officer Nicole Lamoureux said, “Rx Outreach’s continued and proactive commitment to the NAFC, our clinics and those we serve is truly appreciated. Saving money on medications is important to our members and is critical to the health of our patients. We’re excited to have helped create this opportunity and encourage our members to take advantage of it.” For more information on the NAFC / Rx Outreach “Preferred Clinic” Program and how clinics and patients can start saving even more, please visit www.rxoutreach.org/rx-outreach-for-clinics or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
