Prescription Assistance
Are your prescriptions costing too much?
How do I get started?
The 340B discounted prescription program is designed to help cash-paying patients get their needed medication at an affordable price. .
Do I get a discount if I have health insurance?
The 340B program is not designed to help patients with health insurance because the cost of the medication is paid by the health insurance company. The patient, if applicable, will pay the co-payment for the medication to the pharmacy.
Can I get a discount if I don't have health insurance?
How do I get cheaper prescriptions?
As a patient, you are already eligible to begin purchasing your medications at a deeply discounted price. Foothill Community Health Center has contracted with a national pharmacy chain and a local independent pharmacy to offer convenient locations for your prescriptions to be filled and picked-up.
Are the prescribed drugs less effective?
No, the prescribed drugs are effective. The drug manufacturer provides the drugs to patients of Foothill Community Health Center at a discounted price
Your Foothill Community Health Center Primary Care Physician can send an electronic prescription request to its contracted pharmacies or give you a hand-written prescription for you to take to the contracted pharmacy. 
As a patient of Foothill Community Health Center, you are eligible for a discount on prescribed medications that can save you 20% to 50% on the cost of your medication.  .
