Medications offered through the pharmacy include asthma inhalers, insulin, and blood pressure medication, all at no cost. To be eligible for the free pharmacy services, clients must lack health insurance, have a current prescription, and earn equal to or less than 200 percent of the federal poverty line. Eligible participants also must show proof of residency in Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Hunt, Kaufman, Navarro, or Rockwall County.
