HPS Network partners with Community Assistance Program

The Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome Network has partnered with the Community Assistance Program to offer a medication discount card to members, their family and friends.

The discount card can be used at 80 percent of pharmacies across the country including Walgreens, CVS, RiteAid, Target, Walmart and many others. The card is NOT medical insurance. Instead, it offers discounts on medications for those who either do not have drug coverage, or who have gaps in their medical drug coverage. For example, if a drug is not in your insurance formulary, if you must meet a large deductable before coverage becomes effective, or if you’re in the Medicare donut hole, the discount card may be useful to save money.

The card can be used by anyone, whether they have HPS or not. It can also be used over and over again.  Even pet medications can be purchased with the card.

Every time the card is used, 75 cents will be donated to the HPS Network.

Cards were mailed out to the HPS Network membership. If you need additional cards, contact the HPS Network office at 1 (800) 789-9HPS or e-mail
