Mission Statement:

The Rockingham County Division of Public Health Pharmacy “team” will strive to provide quality care and compassion for all patients receiving prescription drug assistance, dispensing and counseling services, and/or educational needs.

 

Pharmacy Services Overview:

 

The pharmacy provides prescription medications on-site for patients seen in the following clinics at the Health Department:

  • Patients seen in Family Planning receive medications such as birth control or STD prescriptions.  Birth control cost is determined on a sliding scale based on each individual patient's income.  Prescriptions for prenatal vitamins are filled for expecting mothers during their first visit with our clinic at no cost.
  • Patients seen in our Adult Health Clinic may have their medications filled at our pharmacy fir $4.00.  If samples are available, then there is no cost. Medications at the pharmacy include chronic care medications for blood pressure, diabetes, heart conditions, nerve pain, cholesterol, etc.  Medications that the pharmacy does not carry may be available through our prescription assistance program, if the client qualifies.
  • Children or teens seen in our Child Health Clinic may receive their prescriptions at our pharmacy at no charge. We provide this service to children that do not have Medicaid, are 22 years of age or younger, and have no other form of prescription insurance.
  • The pharmacy also has low cost diabetes supplies including free glucose meters, test strips (50 strips for $7.00), and lancets (100 lancets for $4.00).  These can be picked up without prescription.
  • The pharmacy has recently started filling prescriptions for Rockingham County Employees.  The formulary is limited, however for the medications available it is $4.00 for a 1 month supply, and $10.00 for a 3 month supply.  This is cash only and is not run under insurance.  Rockingham County Employees must show their badge when picking up the medication.
  • The pharmacy accepts cash or check only.  Checks can be made out to RCDPH.

Pharmacists are available to provide health talks to community nutrition sites, conduct community medication reviews, or perform chronic disease medication counseling to congregational members of churches, civic groups, etc. For more information contact us at 342-8193.

 

Prescription Assistance Program (PAP):

  • The PAP program was initiated in October 2002 through a grant funded by Annie Penn Community Trust. Currently, approximately 300 patients are enrolled. The average patient is on 4-5 medications.

  • The medications are received free of charge from various drug manufacturer programs. Medications are ordered per individual, normally every three months. However, there is a $2.00 administrative fee fore each medication received.

  • Our pharmacists work according to the Chronic Disease Implementation Plan for Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and Cholesterol to monitor patients from this program.

  • Eligibility into this program is dependent upon the manufacturer’s income criteria for a specific medication. A person must also be referred by our clinic providers before initial appointments are scheduled.

  • Persons interested in the PAP program must be seen by a Health Department provider.

Community Prescription Assistance Program (CPAP):

  • The CPAP program, funded by the NC Health and Wellness Trust Fund Commission, was developed for patients in the community who have private physicians but are having difficulty affording their medications.

  • The medications are ordered free or charge from various drug manufacturer’s prescription assistance programs for people meeting their eligibility criteria. Medications are ordered per individual, normally every three months.

  • A person must be referred by his/her provider and have no forms of prescription insurance. There is no age limit.

  • A registered pharmacist will provide a complete medication management review.

  • The CPAP program now has approximately 290 patients enrolled. The goal is to help displaced workers and the Senior population in Rockingham County.

  • CPAP is now assisting the Medicare population with the new Part D Prescription Drug Plan as long as the patients are not in the "donut hole".

  • Persons interested in this program many call 342-8275 for more information.
