What is the prescription assistance program?
We know that getting the medications you need can sometimes be difficult and costly. Having to choose between buying your medications or putting food on the table is something that nobody should be put through. That’s why Health Services of North Texas (HSNT) in Denton, Wylie, and Plano, TX offers a patient prescription assistance program (PAP), which gives our patients access to the medications they need to achieve their very best health. The Prescription Assistance Program provides access to the medications our uninsured and underinsured patients need to adhere to their treatment plans and control chronic illness. With this program, that choice between food, bills, and/or medicine is no longer a problem.

"I've just gotten off the phone with an operator. I was directed from their automated service to press "6" for an urgent matter, so I did and the women was unable to assist. She stated she could not take any messages. Odd. So why have the option for an urgent matter if we can't leave a message or be assisted? I explained my urgent matter and didn't receive any help other than they were on lunch and to call back then. SO AM I. I work during operating hours. Now, it is their lunch hour, I too work and am on my lunch break and have left messages, sent an appointment request and haven't heard back. Please make it make sense."- V.M. / Google / Jul 14, 2022

Do I qualify for the Prescription Assistance Program?
You could qualify for the patient prescription assistance program if you have a lower income, lack insurance, or are underinsured. To find out if you meet our guidelines for this helpful service, reach out to our team in Plano, Denton, or Wylie, TX. This program is not a government program or an insurance plan but rather a service our agency provides to help our patients with their medical needs.
How PAP helps our patients
Most medications are provided by the pharmaceutical companies who manufacture the medicine. Since this plan is an in-office program rather than a government-controlled or insurance-based initiative, we have a more hands-on way to help our patients obtain the prescriptions they need.
When asked about the PAP, one of our patients, Michelle Brown, had this to say: “As far as my insulin goes, [HSNT has] done a great job. Lyrica is so expensive, I just couldn’t believe it. So, I really do owe a lot to HSNT. There have been times when I came up here and I couldn’t afford it, and they said, 'Don’t worry about it.' So, I definitely believe in Health Services – because they’re saving my life.”
