Prescription Assistance

The #1 cause of seizures for people living with epilepsy is missed or late medication.

Since we know the importance of medication compliance for people with epilepsy, the Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee will purchase emergency seizure medications up to cap, and upon verification of need.

You must have an income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (adjusted for family size) to qualify for financial assistance through our foundation.

To insure our clients are self-sufficient once our financial resources have reached their limit, we can also Support clients as they enroll in patient assistance programs which provide low-cost or free medication.

If you qualify for a patient assistance program, it may provide:

  • Prescription medicine free of charge or at low cost.
  • Medicine sent to your home, your doctor's office, or your pharmacy, depending on the program.
  • You can usually get refills for up to a year before reapplying.
