Social Service Patient Medication Assistance Program

Social Worker with PatientUI Hospitals and Clinics social workers work with qualified patients and their families to acquire medications from pharmaceutical companies at little or no cost. If you do not have adequate prescription drug coverage and you are seen by a UIHC physician for the medication in which you need assistance, please contact the UIHC Patient Medication Assistance Program at 319-384-8528 to find out if there may be a program that could help you with the cost of your medications.
