When You Can't Afford Your Medicine
The Cumberland County Medication Access Program (CCMAP) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for eligible residents of Cumberland, Hoke, Harnett and Sampson Counties by operating a licensed, non-profit pharmacy that assists patients in obtaining medication for chronic disease states to over 2,500 patients each month.
This program is able to provide medications from samples, purchased medicines and drug manufacturers' patient assistance programs. Through the use of these programs CCMAP is able to provide many prescription medications at little or no charge to individuals with no prescription insurance. In cooperation with the patient's physician, CCMAP provides each patient with increased access to the medications they need to manage chronic diseases.
