Medication Assistance

Need a prescription filled?

The Outpatient Pharmacy can fill your prescriptions while you wait to go home. For questions, call 910.667.5181.

Keeping up with your medications is an important part of staying healthy. But for some patients, the costs of medications can make it difficult to stay on track. NHRMC has programs in place to help patients who may be unable to pay for needed medications.

Sliding Scale Payment System

NHRMC has a number of ways to help you keep up with your medications. Through our sliding scale payment program, you may qualify for reduced pricing on your medications if you meet certain household and financial criteria. For more information on this program, please speak with an Outpatient Pharmacy team member for assistance.

In addition we offer the following medication assistance programs.
