Nov 2020 UPDATE
- patients can now receive Insulin via DOH. This is a significant change from prior years. Patients should be counseled that they will no longer receive Insulin in clinic (or mailed to them). Instead, just like most other prescribed medications, patients will be picking up Insulin from the employee pharmacy.
To be enrolled in the new DOH Insulin program, all patients must complete a NEW 2020 DOH income attestation form--including patients who signed forms in 2019
Dispensary of Hope (DOH):
Dispensary of Hope (DOH) is a non-profit organization that supplies medications free of charge for patients at EHHOP. While medications have always been free for patients at EHHOP, DOH means that EHHOP will no longer have to pay for many medications. For more information regarding DOH, click me
For Clinicians and Patients:
- For medications to be covered by DOH, patients MUST enroll by completing an ANNUAL income eligibility attestation form, available in English and Spanish.
- Check if your patient is enrolled by looking at columns V & W on the Master Patient List or by looking in the 'media' tab of their EPIC chart
Every patient must be annually enrolled to receive medications from DOH.
- If your patient was previously enrolled, they must complete a 2020 attestation to be eligible again. See instructions below
- If your patient has signed a 2020 DOH form, no further action is required until 2021.
- Order medications as usual on Epic. As soon as a patient is enrolled, any medication that is supplied by DOH will be automatically switched to the DOH source and/or billed to the DOH account.
- Patients should pick up DOH medications from the employee pharmacy, only open Monday-Friday.
