Dispensary of Hope provides medications to needy

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Dispensary of Hope, in partnership with Genesys Health System and Genesee Health Plan, offers medications to Genesee County residents without prescription drug coverage who otherwise would not be able to afford needed medications.
Those who qualify for assistance through Dispensary of Hope must meet the following criteria:
  • Patient's total gross household income is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.
  • Patients are between the age of 18 and 64.
  • Patients are not enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid.
  • Patients do no have any third party prescription insurance.

The Dispensary of Hope dispensing site is stocked with unused, brand-name-only sample medications. Some safety net drugs - high demand generic drugs - also are available. A complete list of medications can be found by going to the Genesys Health System website: http://www.genesys.org/dispensaryofhope.

If the medicine is not available through the dispensary, a Dispensary of Hope representative will investigate other prescription assistance programs to help individuals obtain needed medications.

Dispensary of Hope medications are dispensed at no charge. Once qualification for the program is confirmed, individuals can obtain their medication at the Genesys Pharmacy (located inside the hospital on the Genesys Regional Medical Center - Health Park campus.)

Dispensary of Hope, a not-for-profit network of dispensing sites, sourcing partners and financial partners, is administered through Genesee Health Plan in partnership with Genesys. Genesee County Community Mental Health also has helped to support this service for area residents. To find out if you qualify for this service, call the Dispensary of Hope coordinator at Genesee Health Plan at 810-232-7740, ext. 207.
