The Together Rx Access program, which allows individuals and families without prescription drug insurance coverage to buy discounted medications, will shut down Feb. 28.
Program officials said a review of their Together Rx Access cardholders' needs shows they may be better served through the health insurance marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act, expanded Medicaid programs in some states (Texas is not one of them), or by individual company prescription assistance programs.
Uninsured patients can still enroll in the prescription savings program until Dec. 31, and cardholders can continue using their cards at participating pharmacies until Feb. 28. After that, they may be able to purchase prescription medicines through patient assistance programs offered by pharmaceutical companies. They can call the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) at (800) 981-5851 or visit www.pparx.org.
For additional information about prescription assistance programs and resources, cardholders can go to NeedyMeds and Rx Outreach on the Together Rx Access website.
