NC MedAssist

NC MedAssist is a nonprofit pharmacy program providing access to lifesaving prescription medications, patient support, advocacy and related services to poor, vulnerable, and uninsured North Carolina residents. NC MedAssist seeks to ensure that no eligible person in North Carolina has to choose between purchasing food or their needed medication; improving the patient’s health and lowering uncompensated health care costs for all stakeholders.

Since 1997, MedAssist has dispensed over $30 million in free prescription medicines (average wholesale price or “AWP”) for our clients. Most of the drugs are secured from the Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) available through participating pharmaceutical companies. Our programs include:

In 2017, NC MedAssist filled 134,827 prescriptions (up 7.3% since 2016); served 15,565 free pharmacy patients (up 9.4%); served 21,819 people served by Mobile Free Pharmacy (up 10.5%); and served 603 seniors (up 26.7%).
