Project Summary

 

Monday, July 3, 2000 was the Official Start Date of The Grapevine Project

at the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department

Primary Care Clinic 

No longer will Dr. Pumphrey’s patient at the Primary Care Clinic have to forego his anti-seizure medication for his blood pressure prescription because he doesn’t have enough money for both.  The Grapevine Project provides funding for prescriptions for clients of the clinic who are unable to pay for medications.

The Grapevine Project is simple in its concept:

Provide funding for persons unable to pay for medications.

House the project in an existing program for its implementation.

Staff the project with professionals with a track record.

Partner with local pharmacists who are willing to supply prescriptions at a reduced reimbursement.

And you have The Grapevine Project!

The Grapevine Project has been awarded a $168,575 grant from the Community Health Endowment of Lincoln (CHE) to fund the first year of the program.  The year-one funding is part of a three-year request for $640,000 to satisfy a top CHE priority of establishing an innovative response to providing prescription medication and pharmacy supplies to adults and children in need.  With these funds the Lincoln-Lancaster county Health Department, with the cooperation of the Lancaster County Medical Society, will be able to supply prescription medication for patients who need them, those who have little or no money for healthcare, but are not covered by Medicaid or general assistance.  

Barbara Martinez, RN, Assistant Nursing Supervisor is the Project Director.  Clients will be able to obtain their prescriptions from National Pharmacy on A Street, Hinky Dinky Pharmacy at 17th & South, and Wagey Drug on North 27th Street. The Lancaster County Medical Society is the fiscal agent for the project.
