(This amendment provides funding to support the establishment of the Rx Partnership, a public-private partnership to increase access to prescription medication for Virginia’s low-income, uninsured population. These funds shall be matched with public and/or private resources. The Rx Partnership will operate as a virtual warehouse by soliciting free medications from pharmaceutical manufacturers to be dispensed through affiliated non-profit, licensed pharmacies that are credentialed and monitored by Rx Partnership. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
