The Health Care Center for the Homeless (HCCH) operates an on-site pharmacy in our clinic, the Orange Blossom Family Health Center. Our pharmacy serves our patients seen by a provider within the Health Center and provides low cost medications in a convenient setting. We do ask for low co-pays for the prescription medications provided through our pharmacy, but we do not allow this to become a barrier to service. While many retail pharmacies offer low co- pays for medications, the Health Center recognizes many of our patients lack the regular transportation that would make travelling elsewhere a cost effective choice. HCCH also maintains a Patient Assistance Program (PAP) which helps our patients who qualify obtain free medications through the major pharmaceutical companies. Our PAP coordinator currently works with over 2000 patients and assists them in obtaining an initial three month supply of their medications and helps to manage their refills as needed. This program accessed over $2,000,000 in free prescription medications in 2009. In 2010, the Patient Assistance Program helped our patients receive over $3,000,000 in prescription medications. Without this program, these costs would have been absorbed by either HCCH or the patient with the possibility they may not have received a needed medication.
