CEO, Perry County Medical Center
Since 1979, the Perry County Medical Center, Inc. (PCMC) has been dedicated to serving our neighbors with compassion and providing access to quality healthcare.
One of the ways in which PCMC serves our community is through its participation in the 340B Program.
This federal program, established in 1992, allows eligible healthcare organizations like PCMC to access discounted medications, providing substantial benefits to both patients and the larger community.
Patients at the PCMC are the primary beneficiaries of the 340B Program:
–Medication Discounts and Financial Relief: The most significant advantage is that eligible patients can access medications at significantly reduced prices. This can ease the financial burden of managing chronic conditions or covering the costs of essential medications.
For patients who struggle with high out-of-pocket costs for medications, being a part of the 340B Program can provide much-needed financial relief. This program can help individuals and families better manage their healthcare expenses.
A recent patient reported, “Because of the 340B Program, I was able to afford my diabetic medications! This program has saved my life!”
–Comprehensive Care: The 340B Program often allows health centers to expand their services and offer a more comprehensive range of care. This means that patients can receive not only affordable medications but also a broader spectrum of healthcare services all under one roof.
With the 340B Program, PCMC can offer its patients services like behavioral health and dental care along with primary care services including vaccines, IV hydration and on-site lab and x-ray services.
–Community Support: By participating in the 340B Program, PCMC contributes to the well-being of the community. It ensures that even those without insurance or with limited resources can access necessary medications, promoting overall public health.
If you are a patient at the PCMC talk to your healthcare provider about the 340B Program and inquire if your prescribed medications qualify for discounts through the program.
If you aren’t a patient, please reach out to us to learn more about our 340B Program and if you qualify for this service.
PCMC is not just a healthcare provider; our team is a part of the community. Our dedication to affordable healthcare and participation in the 340B Program make quality healthcare accessible to all.
Whether you’re a patient already benefiting from these services or a potential future patient considering your healthcare options, remember that Perry County Medical Center, Inc. is here to serve you and our community.
