Patient Assistance Programs

Our patient assistance programs have been a tremendous blessing from God. We have used them to help the uninsured and the under-insured in our community. Through the various programs that have been instituted here, we have saved our community over a million dollars. Our current programs include financial assistance to those in the Medicare Gap, working with the uninsured from the Sheep Clinic, along with our low cost medication list, and our newest program is our Essential Pharmacy plan.

Helping those in the Medicare Gap

We have a financial aid program set in place by our board of directors designed to specifically help those that fall into the Medicare Gap, regardless of financial income. We believe that the Medicare Gap (aka, Doughnut Hole) is something that is inherently wrong to do to our senior citizens. When one’s prescription costs suddenly skyrocket in a difficult to predict manner it is unjust. This program is intended to help people afford their medications while they are in the Gap.

Our program offers up to $100 of financial assistance on each prescription filled while someone is in the Medicare Gap, but not taking them below their original copay. There are some caveats on that, such as we do not subsidize narcotics (oxycodone, morphine, etc.), and we do not subsidize benzodiazepines (alprazolam, diazepam, etc). Also, to be good stewards of the funds we raise to help people afford their medications, our board of directors requires that people wanting assistance would continue to use us all the time, even when they are not in the Medicare Gap.

Being good shepherds

Our programs to help the uninsured involves a combination of us selling medications at cost, and working with the Sheep Clinic. Uninsured patients that utilize the Sheep Clinic can get many of their scripts filled for free. Their physicians and other health care providers are aware of the costs of most meds and will work with us to try and come up with affordable therapies.

Becoming the Essential Pharmacy

Sometimes a pharmacy plan will refer to a particular pharmacy (or pharmacy chain) as a preferred pharmacy. We have decided that we want to be more than that. We want to be an Essential Pharmacy. We have identified a number of medications that we want everyone to be able to afford regardless of what insurance plan they have. The following list of medications are free to anyone that uses our pharmacy, even if they don’t have insurance at all:

  • Amlodipine
  • Atorvastatin
  • Citalopram
  • Furosemide
  • Hydrochlorothiazide
  • Lisinopril
  • Metformin 500 mg or 1000 mg
  • Metoprolol tartrate
  • Sertraline
  • Simvastatin

While we reserve the right to continue to evaluate this list throughout the year, we are anticipating giving away many thousands of these prescriptions for free and we hope to grow this list over time to include even more medications

We appreciate all the people in the community that utilize us as their regular pharmacy even when they don’t need assistance as it helps us to be here for everyone. If you have further questions about our programs, fell free to call us at (412) 243-1369 or use our contact form.

Compliance Packaging

Do you or someone you love want some help keeping on top of all their medications?

Would it be beneficial for all of them to be filled at one time and to come organized for when they should be taken?

Compliance packaging, sometimes just called bubble packs, can help. Our pharmacy offers, as a free service, to fill all of your maintenance medications into compliance packs that are organized by day and time of day in easy-to-understand packages. They are laid out similarly to a pillbox making them intuitive to use and images of the medications are included to make it easy to identify which medication is which. The perforated flap can make it easy to tear off and works as a detailed list of all the medications that an individual regularly takes. As an additional benefit, our compliance packs are perforated so you could easily tear off a day’s worth of meds to place in a pocket or purse for when someone wants to be on the go.

As one of the few pharmacies that offer this as a free service, and we offer free local delivery, this is a service that might be of use. Give us a call at (412) 243-1369, or use our contact form to get more information.

Compounding what you need!

As a compounding pharmacy, Lost and Found can customize medication based on a patient’s specific needs. Sometimes you or someone you care about may need a medication in a particular strength or dosage form that is not readily available. By working with your physician we can help formulate and prepare these items. We can make a wide variety of medications including oral capsules, topical cream, gels, and ointments, oral suspension, otic preparations, suppositories, and more. Best of all we are usually more affordable than many of the competing compounding pharmacies.

Medication made for you. One more reason that Lost and Found Pharmacy is your essential pharmacy.

Veterinary Medicine

Your best friend, whether cute, cuddly, crazy, or mischievous, can get sick from time to time just like you. As a non-profit pharmacy, we can often obtain pet meds and sell them at a lower price than most other places. We also provide compounding services at very competitive prices eliminating the need for things to be sent to you through the mail from another state. We have many medications in stock, and can typically obtain additional meds from one of our wholesalers within 2 business days.

At the very least, check with us the next time you need something to see if we can save you some money, and be prepared for us to ask for pictures as we want to love your pets too!

If you need us to transfer a script from another pharmacy, either give us a call or use our contact form and share the pertinent details.
