NC MedAssist is a nonprofit pharmacy program providing access to lifesaving prescription medications, patient support, advocacy and related services to poor, vulnerable, and uninsured North Carolina residents.
NC MedAssist seeks to ensure that no eligible person in North Carolina has to choose between purchasing food or their needed medication; improving the patient’s health and lowering uncompensated health care costs for all stakeholders.
NC MedAssist has made great strides since last year's Pancakes & Beer 5K, and the funds raised from this year's race will help us to
keep going! We are counting on the Pancakes & Beer 5K this
year more than ever. Our prescription medicine costs continue to rise and we need the
community’s support to keep our pharmacy stocked with the lifesaving medication
our patients need.
YOUR Investment Counts!
Through every 5K registration, money donated towards teams or individuals, t-shirts purchased, etc. Your dollars are directly helping YOUR neighbors in need.
For every $1 donated $20 in medications are dispensed back to the community. 90% of your investment goes directly to client services, and ten percent goes to administration and development. In fiscal year 17-18, with the help of the community, NC MedAssist dispensed over $63 million in free prescription medicines back to the community.
