The Pharmacy Connection (TPC) is a web-based software developed by the Virginia Health Care Foundation (VHCF) that provides access to free brandname medications through the pharmaceutical companies Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs), low-cost generic medications through Rx Outreach, and other free and discount generic programs. TPC also includes programs for free or deeply discounted C-PAP masks, nebulizers, eyeglasses, and other supplies.
TPC was designed by Medication Assistance Caseworkers (MACs) for Medication Assistance Caseworkers. It is HIPAA compliant and streamlines everything from determining patient eligibility to ordering, tracking and reporting for more than 300 prescription assistance programs. In Virginia alone, TPC has generated more than $7.2 billion in free and low-cost generic medications for more than 355,355 individuals since it was first developed 25 years ago.
TPC is currently used by 276 organizations (121 in Virginia and 155 in 16 other states). Of those, 35 are free clinics in Virginia and 52 are free clinics in other states.
