MY Meds can help you
  • obtain prescribed medications that are too costly for you to afford
  • get referrals to other community resources in the area to meet food, utility, medical equipment, and healthcare needs   
  • apply for Medicare Part-D or choose a new plan
With MY Meds’ help, qualified clients secure all their medications for free. Medications can be picked up at your pharmacy or physician's office, or they can be mailed to your home. MY Meds does not secure any pain medications.
