Wyoming residents with limited resources to purchase medications may be eligible to receive donated medications from the Wyoming Medication Donation Program (WMDP) via mail or a participating Dispensing Site. The medication donation program is intended for short-term assistance. Donations fluctuate and medications may not always be available or be available in a desired quantity. Patients should research other alternatives to receive consistent long-term assistance.
In order to receive assistance from the WMDP, patients must meet ALL of the following eligibility requirements:
1. Wyoming Resident
2. Limited resources to purchase prescription medications, as determined by the Dispensing Site. Generally, eligibility requirements:
- No Prescription Insurance, or Wyoming Medicaid
- Low-Income (200% Federal Poverty Level or below). This level may vary if using a local dispensing site.
