Prescriptions

Northland CARE/MetroCARE patients are responsible for their prescriptions. We encourage our patients to request generic medications from the prescribing physician. Many area pharmacies– including Hen House, Target, Wal-Mart and Price Chopper–offer a $4 formulary program.

Through the Kansas City Medicine Cabinet program, prescription assistance is available on a one-time basis.  In addition, many safety net clinics have their own dispensaries, where prescriptions are filled on a free to low-cost basis. See Clinics page for a list of clinics.

Assistance is available for some prescriptions through the Needy Meds program. For information on the Needy Meds program, CLICK HERE to be directed to their site.
