BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Some residents in Louisiana lost their homes and vehicles because of Hurricane Ida. Others lost their prescriptions during the storm.
The Louisiana Department of Health is trying to help those who did lose their prescriptions through the Emergency Prescription Assistance Program.
LDH says this program is “run by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, EPAP is designed to assist people without health insurance in a federally-identified disaster area replace prescription drugs, vaccinations, medical supplies, and other equipment that they need.”
If you do have insurance, your pharmacy will send the bill to your provider.
If you qualify as someone who does not have insurance and lost your prescriptions during Ida, call EPAP enrollment at 1-855-793-7470.
