COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO (October 12, 2009) – Working to optimize health and promoting solutions designed to achieve high quality, cost-effective health care, North Idaho Health Network is partnering with MEDPro to add a Prescription Assistance Program to the services they offer their 270 member physicians and five member hospitals in the five Northern Counties of Idaho. Headquartered in Coeur d Alene, this program and service will be offered at no cost to their membership and is designed to offer free or low cost prescriptions to people who are uninsured or underinsured and meet certain income guidelines.
“The Prescription Assistance Program offered through North Idaho Health Network and MEDPro LLC was created to help patients throughout our communities through physicians and clinics.”
Uninsured or underinsured patients often find themselves having to choose between medications and other necessities of life. But no one should have to choose. To help prevent this from happening physicians and medical clinics spend an average of 191 hours per-month assisting patients in finding free or low cost prescriptions, a service that is not reimbursable to the provider.
The Prescription Assistance Program offered through North Idaho Health Network and MEDPro LLC was created to help patients throughout our communities through physicians and clinics.
MEDPro will provide NIHN members a select and dedicated team of advocates, giving your patients access to one of the broadest selections of prescription assistance program services available. This will allow each healthcare provider to maintain the therapeutic relationship with their patients and relieves them from the time consuming task of applying for medications that stabilize patient’s health condition.
As a nationally recognized company, the MedPro LLC professionals have a comprehensive understanding and database of Pharmaceutical Company Prescription Assistance Programs. This allows them to provide efficient service and a streamlined application process.
