Yale New Haven Health (YNHH) said Thursday it has partnered with a Nashville nonprofit to provide access to free prescriptions for patients with limited incomes.

Yale New Haven Health Pharmacy North Haven Medical Center and Yale New Haven Health Pharmacy at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital are now partnered with Dispensary of Hope. The retail pharmacy at Bridgeport Hospital will also become a partner when its on-site pharmacy opens later this year, YNHH said.

Dispensary of Hope partner pharmacies provide free medication to low-income, uninsured patients. The nonprofit is a charitable medication distributor that provides pharmacies and safety-net clinics with medication that is donated by pharmaceutical manufacturers.

To be eligible, patients must be uninsured and have income at or below 300% of the federal poverty level. For a single person, 300% of the federal poverty level means annual income of $40,770. Qualifying patients also must have a prescription.

Available medications include drugs to treat high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stomach ulcers and diabetes.
