The Dispensary of Hope is a program that helps the uninsured or underinsured get medications they could not otherwise afford. Retail pharmacy supervisor Jason Hammerick explains how CHI Saint Joseph Health participates.

Jason Hamrick, PHARMD with CHI Saint Joseph Health – Pharmacy

We have partnered with this program to be able to obtain donated medications. If someone is uninsured and below 300% of the federal poverty level, so that means that a family of four that makes less than $79,000 a year, we would actually be able to provide them to the patient for no charge.

And some of these medications can be life saving.

The most important list of medications that we have available through this program are the insulins. We can provide this to these people at no charge, which is a huge advantage. We want to serve all patients, regardless of their ability to pay for their medications.
