 Prescription Advocacy & Referral Service (PARS)

The Prescription Advocacy & Referral Service (PARS) is a free service provided to income-eligible clients 60 and over. Funding for this program is provided by the Helen Bader Foundation and the Social Development Commission. Clients are provided assistance in obtaining free or low-cost prescription medications from participating pharmaceutical companies. The support provided by the PARS program coordinator will include assisting clients with completing and submitting the necessary paperwork and documentation to the pharmaceutical companies with prescription assistance programs that carry the medication(s) they need. Once clients are approved by the pharmaceutical companies, they will receive the medication(s) through their clinic/physician who prescribed the medication. No medications will be mailed to SDC or kept on the premises at SDC at any time. The program coordinator will also assist clients in obtaining refills and reapplying for prescribed medications.

PARS will also establish relationships with local clinics and physicians’ offices for the purpose of receiving client referrals for the program and obtaining the necessary client information for processing applications.


  1. Clients must possess a prescribed medication provided by their doctor or clinic.
  2. Clients must call or come in to see the PARS coordinator to make arrangements to start the process of completing the necessary paperwork and providing the necessary documentation requested by the pharmaceutical company.
  3. The PARS Program Coordinator will submit the completed paperwork to the pharmaceutical company.
