At the University of Vermont Health Network we want to make sure that cost doesn’t prevent you from getting the care you need.
The Health Assistance Program (HAP) is here to help eligible low- and middle-income families get prescription medications at no cost, even if you have insurance.
IF YOU QUALIFY:
- All co-pays and costs are waived for both brand-name and generic prescriptions. For example, a family of four with a household income of $100,000 could save up to $600 per month on out-of-pocket costs at the pharmacy.
- Medications can be picked up at a UVM Health Network pharmacy or conveniently mailed to your home.
HAP ALSO PROVIDES:
- Access to eyeglasses and medical equipment.
- Assistance with enrollment in state and federal programs, including obtaining insurance through the Vermont Health Connect exchange.
- Advocacy and support with obtaining other health care related resources.
Call: (802) 847-6984 or toll-free at (888) 739-5183
Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
