How Are We Doing This?

  • We are developing and maintaining a network of patient advocates, doctor’s offices and clinics throughout the state and working through them for patient referrals.
  • The referral goes through our primary point of entry and the patient’s eligibility is determined. Screening for other help the patient needs will also be realized. For example, all families will be screened for SCHIP and if their children aren’t enrolled, WVRx will assist through its network.
  • Armed with the knowledge that the patient is eligible and what medicines can be accessed, the prescriber registers the patient, and eligibility information is sent via fax or mail to WVRx.
  • The pharmacist will fill the prescription and send it to the patient within 24-48 hours of receiving eligibility documents.
