FARMINGTON —  Anyone who needs help saving money on prescription medications is eligible for MaineHealth’s recently expanded MedAccess program for Greater Franklin County residents.

MedAccess is funded by MaineHealth and is administered at eight Maine hospitals, including Franklin Memorial Hospital.

MedAccess works with individuals and health care providers to identify ways patients can save money on prescription medications. This free program helps patients and health care providers evaluate options such as pharmaceutical companies’ patient assistance programs, low-cost generic programs and Medicare Part D, and state and local prescription programs that can help save on prescription medication costs.

Dianna White, who has been appointed the MedAccess prescription assistance case manager based in Farmington, has can be seen at Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County, 105 Mt. Blue Circle. 

Anyone contacting the office should be prepared to give his or her demographic information, a current medication list and income and insurance information. White will then determine the programs for which that person qualifies and will help individuals through the enrollment process. Clients will also be referred to other local social service agencies as needed for additional resources.
