RX for Oklahoma helps those who can’t afford medications


Enid News and Eagle

— Help is available, through RX for Oklahoma, for Oklahomans who cannot afford prescription medications. The program helps the uninsured or underinsured access pharmaceutical company programs that offer reduced-cost or free medications.

RX for Oklahoma staff from across the region will be on hand to help area residents 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at The Non-Profit Center, 114 S. Independence.

Residents are asked to bring a valid form of ID, proof of income, insurance cards and/or proof of insurance.

RX for Oklahoma is funded by the state and offered by three community action offices in Region 1, which services northwest Oklahoma, including the Panhandle. Community Development Support Association and Opportunities Inc. staff three offices and serve a 16-county region, which includes Garfield, Grant, Noble, Kay, Kingfisher, Blaine, Major, Alfalfa, Woods, Dewey, Woodward, Harper, Ellis, Beaver, Texas and Cimarron counties.
