Generic medications are on the rise, and to make them more affordable, especially for the uninsured, the Williamsburg Health Foundation has stepped in with a pilot program at Olde Towne Medical Center to make it easier for people to acquire them, according to a recent press release from the Foundation.

“It was always assumed that generic medications would be affordable, but that’s not necessarily proving to be true,” said Allison Brody, the Director of Community Resource Development and Engagement at the Williamsburg Health Foundation. “This is a pilot to look at providing truly available, accessible generic medication.”

The program is one of several initiatives that are part of a $3.5 million grant from the Foundation to fund health programs in the area, including those providing behavioral health services and access to medications.
