Prescriptions Drugs

Prescription drugs are expensive and those used to treat HIV are VERY expensive.

  • If you have no health insurance to pay for them, CAREAssist has a long list of drugs that are provided at no charge to clients.
  • If you have insurance that does not cover the full cost of prescriptions, CAREAssist can cover those "deductibles," "co-payments" and "co-insurance" costs.
