ACCESS TO MEDICATION PROGRAM
Access to the Medication Program (AMP) provides critically needed generic and brand medications to vulnerable Virginians at a wide range of health care facilities across the Commonwealth.
By providing access to 42 of the most needed generics, RxP can help reduce facilities’ overall spend on medication, increase prescription pick-up rate for patients, and ultimately improve health outcomes for a population that cannot afford the rising cost for generics.
The AMP Program serves patients up to 300% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)
