Caring for Our Neighbors

  • PHNCF believes in caring for our own – those who live in the communities we serve. Donations to Caring for Our Neighbors ensure that PHN patients are able to receive the prescription medications needed for their chronic conditions, as well as helping youth receive skills training in preparation for life after high school.

    PRESCRIPTION ASSISTANCE

    Many maintenance medications cost consumers several hundred dollars a month, and we are able to provide prescription assistance to PHN patients in need.

    Assistance is provided for life-sustaining medications, such as high blood pressure, behavioral health, cancer, diabetes, and heart medications. Without taking their prescribed medications, patients may develop worsening symptoms or complications, leading to further healthcare and emergency room costs.

    Since its inception in 2013, more than $14,000 has been distributed to help patients adhere to their maintenance medications.

     

    Primary Health Network Patient Transportation

    A lack of transportation is consistently ranked among the top barriers that prevent access to healthcare. We support Primary Health Network's "Provide the Ride" program. Provide the Ride is a free service for Primary Health Network patients who have no way to get to their appointments. Today, this program averages over 16,000 rides a year throughout Mercer, Lawrence, Beaver, Clarion, Erie, Blair, and Mifflin counties. For more information or to request a ride, please visit PHN's Patient Transportation page.
