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 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)
