Drug Donation Repository

SafeNet Rx

At SafeNetRx

We see the efforts providers make to change their patients' lives for the better. That’s why we created our Drug Donation Repository model, a place where providers can access donated medications to serve their most vulnerable patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ordering

We receive and process donations daily. Once your organization has signed up to receive medications, our inventory will be available for you to view online.  Please note that we do not distribute controlled substances, products requiring refrigeration or those subject to REMS criteria with an element to assure safe use OR an implementation system.

Generally, you should receive everything on your order. There are certain medications that are in very high demand that we have to limit, but we make an effort to fulfill each order as best we can. 

You may submit as many orders as you need.  Some partners prefer to submit one large order.  Others prefer to submit one order per patient. All orders placed before 4:30PM on Wednesday will be shipped together the following Monday.

Yes, the SafeNetRx Drug Donation Repository is currently free for all of our partners.

This means the medication is currently unavailable. We receive and process donations daily so make sure to check back at a later time to see if the needed medication is in stock. 

Orders are shipped each Monday and typically take 1-2 business days for our partners to receive.  Orders submitted before 4:30PM on Wednesdays should ship the following Monday.  Orders submitted after 4:30PM on Wednesdays cannot be guaranteed for shipment the following Monday.

Compliance

Yes, thirty-nine US states and territories have passed legislation to allow for the collection and distribution of unused medicine. If you reside in a state where drug donation laws have not been adopted, you can still legally donate unused medicine and supplies to SafeNetRx. In addition, the World Health Organization has established international guidelines for donated medicine.

SafeNetRx requires you keep Patient Intake Forms on file for five years following dispensing of donated medicines.  Additionally, per the Iowa Administrative Code 8.7(6), All pharmacies shall maintain supplier invoices of prescription drugs upon which the actual date of receipt of the drugs by the pharmacist or other responsible individual is clearly recorded. Pharmacy records of shipments shall be maintained for at least two years from the date of the record.

Medications ordered from SafeNetRx may only be dispensed to eligible patients that complete a Patient Intake Form.  Patient Eligibility Requirements include:

  • Living in the state of Iowa
  • Annual household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level
  • Uninsured or under-insured meaning they cannot afford their prescription co-pay
