Most Americans are not aware of the help that is available to reduce, or in some cases eliminate their costs for brand name and generic medications. Our staff at HCCUA is well equipped and educated in researching and identifying programs to assist in these types of situations. We will not only help you find the appropriate options, but will assist with the application process and paperwork. Best of all, this comes at no additional charge to you!
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Our staff will work with you to identify which medications you are currently taking and programs that are available to help you reduce your costs. Here are some of the ways that we can typically help (where and when available):
- Free Medications
- Discount Medications
- Small Co-Pays
- Mail Order Options
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you currently need prescription assistance, please complete the following documents in which you receive in your Welcome Kit and return them in the enclosed prepaid envelope:
- Prescription Assistance Form
- Authorization for Use and Disclosure of Protected Health Information
- Membership Billing Confirmation Letter
When we receive the completed forms from you, we will then contact you to set up an initial appointment to speak with one of our Prescription Specialist. The specialist will then verify all your information, explain how the process works, and answer various questions you might have. Then all you have to do is sit back and let us go to work for you. It’s that easy!
If you have any additional questions please call us at Member Services 866-227-5400
