The Anderson Free Clinic operates a pharmacy service for patients as a part of a comprehensive healthcare mission for qualified patients.
The pharmacy will fill most prescriptions, but it has a limited formulary and does not carry controlled substances. Most of the medications filled are designed to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, asthma, and bacterial infections.
There is a $2.00 processing fee requested for each prescription, which helps cover some of the expenses of running the Free Clinic pharmacy. No patient will be denied prescribed medication because of an inability to pay this fee.
PATIENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
Sara Velez, our Patient Assistant Coordinator, works to match qualifying patients with patient assistant programs that provide medication at a greatly reduced cost. If you qualify, be responsive in signing the necessary paperwork given to you. These programs are the only source of certain medications and require 6-8 weeks for the patient assistance program to process the information.
To learn more about other programs that may help out low-income households, do not hesitate to ask the pharmacy staff.
Please allow two business days for prescriptions to be filled. The pharmacy provides same-day service for antibiotics and emergency situations, but non-emergency prescriptions can take up to two days to process due to the large number of prescriptions received. Please place prescription orders in advance.
Refills may be requested in person or over the phone by calling the pharmacy’s extension at 864-226-1294, ext 237. To call in a refill, you will need to request the specific medication to be refilled, the prescription number, your name, and date of birth. Refills may be requested one week before they are due.
Prescriptions expire one year after the date they are written. Even if there are refills left on your prescription, the pharmacy will no longer be able to fill it if it has expired.
The pharmacy does not have the resources to transfer prescriptions from another pharmacy. Please get a new prescription from your doctor.
