The Medication Assistance Program (MAP) offers prescription medications free of charge to any uninsured Rice County resident. This program works in close collaboration with our local partner Sterling Drug to offer prescriptions not only to HFC patients, but also patients in local Emergency Rooms and clinics without coverage for medications. Sterling Pharmacies provides prescription delivery in both Northfield and Faribault, automatic refills, and other prescription services. Our unique community collaboration with Sterling Pharmacy allows us to better meet the needs of HFC patients, adding a community pharmacist to HFC’s care team.
We have MNsure approved navigators who can assist with enrollment and other MNsure Healthcare enrollment issues. Our efforts include helping patients apply for healthcare insurance, assisting patients through bill-pay or patient-assistance programs, and connecting patients to other community organizations and social service programs throughout Rice County. We gear our assistance to the specific needs of each patient, and help contact the appropriate agencies to ensure that applications and enrollment are completed.
