HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

  • We will fill out the application forms for your medicines that are listed on the program.
  • Forms will be sent to your doctor for signature and prescriptions.
  • When we get the forms back, we will finish the application and send to a pharmaceutical company.
  • It is at that time that the decision is made as to whether you are eligible. We have nothing to do with these decisions.
  • If you do not qualify for a particular medication, you or your doctor will be notified and you need to let us know.
  • If you are eligible, your medicine will be sent to your home or doctor’s office.
  • When you receive your medicine you are to notify this office as soon as possible.
  • We need to know what medicines you received, the amount you received and the dosage.
  • You also need to bring to this office the PACKING SLIPS you received with your medicines. THIS IS A MUST. Be sure to ask the person at the doctor’s office for the packing slips, telling them PAP needs them.
