Prescription Program

In some situations where a patient has been discharged from hospital that patient may not have the funds available to cover the costs of prescribed medication. Northern Health is able to cover 3 days of a prescription how ever in some circumstances getting the patient the necessary supports can take longer. Usually funding is coming but is not set up yet. In some cases we will cover up to a week of the cost of the prescriptions. Eligibility for this is determined by both Networks Director and the DCDH Social Worker. Referrals for this program are generated only through the DCDH Social worker and only in situations that meet the criteria.
