The Prescription Assistance Fund provides direct aid to individuals and families to help them cover prescription costs, premiums for prescription drug insurance, and/or prescription drug co-pays.

Funding Salisbury’s Prescription Assistance Fund is provided by the Harrison Memorial Fund, a donor restricted fund of FCH. Since 2004, thousands of individuals have been supported through the Prescription Assistance Fund, a fund that operates throughout FCH’s 17-town rural region. The program benefits people that are not eligible for Medicaid, but still have difficulty paying for prescription insurance premiums or have significant co-pays for medications they take regularly.
