Cost & Billing

Pricing is based on the availability of the medication through our Drug Donation Repository. In an effort to serve as many patients across Iowa as possible, we fill mostly 30-day supply prescriptions.  We charge a dispensing fee of $5 for generic prescriptions and $15 for brand-name prescriptions and larger bulky items. 

Payment is due before prescriptions are shipped out.  Debit/credit is the preferred method of payment for timely shipping, but we do accept checks, money orders, and cash by mail if needed. Payment may be called in OR an electronic invoice may be emailed to you that allows you to securely enter your payment information online.

Dispensing fees may be covered by the patient or their provider

You must re-apply for medication assistance through the charitable pharmacy annually to ensure you are still eligible to receive donated medicines.

Prescriptions are shipped Monday through Thursday via USPS to any Iowa address including PO boxes.  Delivery typically takes 3-5 business days.  If you need to know the status of your shipment, send us a message at pharmacy@safenetrx.org and we will send you your tracking information.

At this time, we do not carry insulin or any medication that requires refrigeration. We receive test strips through our Drug Donation Repository, but cannot guarantee a constant supply.  Send us a message at pharmacy@safenetrx.org and we will check to see if we have your needed test strips.
