Tri-Area Community Health strives to provide affordable, accessible primary care and behavioral health services to the communities we serve.
That’s why we proudly offer medical assistance programs, case management services, and insurance enrollment assistance to our clinic patients, pharmacy customers, and others who need help.
By providing access to these services and programs, we’re able to give our patients, customers, and neighbors the high-quality, comprehensive care they deserve. We invite you to choose Tri-Area Community Health and contact our team to learn more about the assistance we offer.
Medication Assistance Program
Tri-Area Community Health’s Medication Assistance Program (MAP) helps uninsured patients and other customers of our pharmacies gain access to low-cost medications. Eligibility is based on income, lack of prescription coverage, and the availability of medications through pharmaceutical assistance programs. Medications are dispensed through Tri-Area Community Pharmacies at Ferrum or Laurel Fork (or by delivery to Floyd or Grayson Highlands) for a minimal fee. Discounts on medications are also available through the Sliding Scale Fee program (see below).
A limited number of medications are available for those enrolled in Medicare D Plans and who qualify based on income requirements. Some of these medications are available during the coverage gap or “donut hole.”
Contact the Medication Assistance Coordinators at Tri-Area Community Health Pharmacy at Laurel Fork or Tri-Area Community Health Pharmacy at Ferrum for more information and eligibility requirements.
These programs are sponsored by the Virginia Health Care Foundation.
Sliding Fee Program
The Sliding Fee Program allows Tri-Area Community Health patients who are uninsured or under-insured to receive healthcare services at a lower cost. We understand it’s not always possible for patients to be covered by health insurance, or that your insurance may have high deductibles. The Sliding Fee Program helps patients who may not qualify for public benefits and/or who are not able to afford the full cost of healthcare.
An online application for the Sliding Fee Program is available here.
If you’re currently uninsured and looking for coverage through the Affordable Care Act or Virginia Medicaid, Tri-Area Community Health wants to help you through the enrollment process. Our trained and certified application counselors will answer your questions and get you enrolled in a Marketplace insurance plan that best suits your medical needs. Contact us today to get started!
Do you need additional ACA information as you navigate the process? Our staff also plans community outreach events during open enrollment to provide our neighbors with certified assistance, so look for one in your area.
