GHCCM’S PHARMACY SERVICES.
“GHCCM’s Medical Ministries Pharmacy offers qualified patients access to low and no-cost medications through patient assistance programs and partnerships with area businesses and wholesalers.”
To be eligible for pharmacy services including prescription assistance, individuals must be adults, age 18 or older, living in Catawba or Alexander counties, with an income within 200% of the Federal Poverty guidelines, be uninsured and ineligible for Medicaid. In order to determine whether a client is eligible for pharmacy services he/she is asked to complete an application for a health care card with a staff person from Client Services. The following information must be presented before a card can be issued: photo id, social security card or immigration card, proof of address, proof of income, income taxes for the previous year, and a Medicaid denial letter. Note: If a client did not file taxes or has not income he/she will be asked to sign a form stating such. A Medicaid denial letter can be printed on site by our Case Manager from the Department of Social Services.
Some services are available to patients who do not meet the criteria listed. Please contact a member of the pharmacy staff to discuss any questions you may have.
The pharmacy fills prescription medications for eligible patients seen at GHCCM’s Medical Ministry clinic, Catawba Family Care, Catawba Valley Behavioral Health, Cognitive Connections, and Catawba Valley Medical Group practices. In addition, patients seen in the emergency departments, urgent care, or other physician practices can have prescriptions filled at the GHCCM pharmacy if they are eligible. In general, patients are asked to pay $3.00 for prescriptions not available through free programs. No patient is turned away because of their inability to pay for their prescriptions. Anyone not able to pay is referred to the WRAPP program to meet with a program navigator for additional services and assistance.
