Frequently Asked Questions


We receive and process donations daily. You may view our current inventory here. Once your organization has enrolled to receive medications, our inventory will be available for order via an online form.  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, forty-one 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.

Donated medications must be labeled appropriately before dispensing to patients. Take a look at our labeling template for more guidance. In addition to labeling, consider printing drug information material for your patient. Patient-friendly drug monographs can be found here. Contact SafeNetRx at repository@safenetrx.org for additional guidance and ask about our Sample Handling Procedures to assist with policy development for your organization.

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
  • Unable to afford their prescribed medication regardless of insurance status

SafeNetRx requires you to report back quarterly the number of patients you served using donated medication and the quantity of donated medications you dispensed. We also ask for any compelling patient stories we can share with our funders.
