Prescription Assistanct & Referrals

The #1 cause of seizures for people living with epilepsy is missed our late medication.

Since we know the importance of medication compliance for people with epilepsy, the Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee provides a limited amount of financial aid for anti-epileptic medications to individualswith epilepsy in our area who qualify. We can also assist you in applying for prescription assistance programs through the pharmaceutical company that makes your medication.


You must have an income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (adjusted for family size) to qualify for financial assistance through our foundation.

Please call (423) 634-1771 or (423) 634-1772 today for more information.

If you have epilepsy and have a need we cannot meet, we will be happy to refer you to local agencies that may be able to assist.

  • (423) 265-8000 if you are in Tennessee but not in Chattanooga.
