“Rx Partnership is so appreciative of the long-term support from donors, foundations, and the clinic volunteers and staff that has made this achievement possible,” – Amy Yarcich, Rx Partnership Executive Director.
On May 10, 2023, Sinclair Health Clinic and Rx Partnership celebrated the 1 millionth prescription offered to low-income, uninsured patients with events at 30 clinics statewide. “Access to medication is critical to maintaining good health, and we are proud to be able to provide this service to those who otherwise might not be able to afford it. We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, deserves access to quality healthcare, and we will continue to work tirelessly towards that goal,” said Sinclair Health Clinic Executive Director Katrina McClure.
“Rx Partnership is so appreciative of the long-term support from donors, foundations, and the clinic volunteers and staff that has made this achievement possible,” according to Amy Yarcich, Rx Partnership Executive Director. “This important milestone is being celebrated on May 10 by Rx Partnership and the thirty clinic partners around the Commonwealth who connect healthcare and medication with patients in need. Making it possible for individuals with chronic conditions to live, work and enjoy a healthier life with their families – without worrying about the cost of medication!”
Rx Partnership (RxP) is dedicated to increasing access to medication for vulnerable patients in Virginia. Working via a network of thirty health clinics throughout the state, RxP coordinates the distribution of low-cost or free brand and generic medication to adult, low-income patients without insurance, regardless of ability to pay. RxP is a critical part of the health safety net—providing medication to clinic partners of all sizes, including clinics with and without licensed pharmacies.
Since its founding in 2004, when the organization pioneered an entirely new approach to medication assistance in Virginia, Rx Partnership has provided more than $270 million in free medication and reached over 82,642 low-income, uninsured people throughout Virginia. In total, Rx Partnership has helped fill more than one million prescriptions and will continue to strategically address the ongoing challenge of affordable medication access for as long as needed. While access to care has improved since Rx Partnership’s founding, with fewer people uninsured in Virginia, the rising costs of medications mean that Rx Partnership’s services are needed now more than ever.
The Rx Partnership Profile and 2022 Impact Report found on the organization’s website provides more information on critical services and success stories, along with a map showing the entire group of clinic partners and the regions they serve.
