What is CMAP?

The Rapides Foundation in 2001 created the Cenla Medication Access Program (CMAP) in response to Community Health Assessments showing that among the barriers to healthcare access, the high cost of prescription medications impacted the greatest number of Central Louisiana adults. CMAP offers free or reduced-cost prescriptions to eligible clients. CMAP also provides education on the importance of appropriate medication usage.

While CMAP administers other programs of The Rapides Foundation, its focus on medication access continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of the community. Today, CMAP is offered statewide, providing free medications to eligible individuals through its Patient Assistance Program and its Central Fill Pharmacy.

Patient Assistance Program specialists work closely with rural clinics and primary care practices to provide patients’ prescriptions, and CMAP is able to expand its pharmaceutical offerings through its Central Fill Pharmacy and partnerships with pharmaceutical companies.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Client must reside in Louisiana
  • Income must be at or below 300% Federal Poverty Level
  • Client must not have any private insurance prescription coverage or Medicaid prescription coverage
  • Medicare clients are eligible!
  • Client must be 18 years of age or older

CMAP also administers other projects for The Rapides Foundation: the Cancer Screening Project, which helps residents get access to free medical screenings for breast, colorectal and cervical cancers; CMAP Extra, a prescription card program that offers reduced rates on some medications; the Smoking Cessation Trust, which offers cessation counseling to eligible tobacco users; the Healthy Lifestyle Program, which provides one-on-one nutrition and physical activity counseling to patients referred by their doctors; and the Prevent T2 Diabetes Prevention Program, which is a program that is part of the National Diabetes Prevention Program, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Central Louisiana groups will be led by Healthy Lifestyle Program staff, who have been trained to use the CDC-approved PreventT2 curriculum and have the knowledge and skills needed to effectively deliver the program.

Medical access services provided by CMAP are offered statewide. Other CMAP services – the Healthy Lifestyle Program, Cancer Screening Project and Smoking Cessation Trust – are offered to people who reside in The Rapides Foundation’s nine-parish service area.
