Participating health centers, such as free and charitable clinics, rural and community health centers, provide Medication Assistance Programs (MAP) for low income, uninsured patients who need access to prescription drugs and who cannot afford them. The Office of Rural Health does not provide patient care and can only refer you to a clinic for assistance. If you need help obtaining your prescription medication, please contact a clinic near you to see if you qualify for assistance: Medication Assistance Program Sites.
In addition, NC MedAssist, a statewide free pharmacy program, provides prescription medications to uninsured, low-income patients. Patients must live in North Carolina, have no access to insurance, and meet certain income requirements. If you cannot afford prescription medications, please contact NC MedAssist to see if you qualify for assistance by clicking this link or by calling 1-866-331-1348
