Prescription assistance for low income

Since a new low-income prescription program started in May, local doctors have helped about 150 low-income patients get more than $200,000 worth of prescriptions through manufacturers' assistance programs.

The Prescription Assistance Solution Service is offered through the Community Health Partnership, a collaboration of more than 17 local health care organizations, and PracticeNet Solutions, which is affilated with the El Paso County Medical Society.

The service is free to physician offices.

For more information, call Diana Atcheson, 329-7103.
