Rx Outreach is a non-profit, mail-order pharmacy that provides over 1,000 affordable medication strengths to people in need. We have provided prescription medications to over 285,000 patients. Rx Outreach was a program that was developed by a subsidiary of Express Scripts, Inc. in 2004. In 2010, Express Scripts spun off Rx Outreach to be a stand-alone, charitable organization in order to improve access to prescription medicines for low-income, uninsured patients.
Rx Outreach is available to individuals and families whose income is at or below 400% of the Federal Poverty Level. For a single person, annual income cannot exceed $49,960; a family of four may have an annual household income up to $103,000. Please refer to the Eligibility Tab on the website.
