Will the WCCC pay for prescription drugs?

The WCCC reimburses its patients up to $50 (after a $5 copay) for each prescription per month. To maximize the benefits to all of our patients, we encourage them to join a generic drug discount program, such as the CVS Health Savings Pass program; such programs are commonly available through CVS, Walmart, Target, Walgreen's and other popular drug stores. By doing so, patients are able to buy common generic drugs for a discount, and the WCCC often reimburses the entirety of that cost.

Patients may be eligible for the following services and procedures at a reduced cost:

  • Referrals to specialists
  • X-rays
  • CT Scan
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
