MORE ABOUT KPAP:
The Kentucky Prescription Assistance Program began in the fall of 2008 to help citizens in need obtain free and reduced cost prescription medications through a variety of support programs, including those offered by prescription drug manufacturers. The goal of the program is to enable access to free prescription drugs for low income patents, improve medication compliance, decrease emergency room visits and hospitalizations and help patients be well. Saint Joseph London became a KPAP partner in 2010.
