According to articles #5 and 6 of Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Executive Order to temporarily suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life, World Medical Relief will continue to offer its local program services as they are crucial to people's health and well-being.
Orders for supplies – diapers, pull-ups, blue pads, liquid nutrition, ostomy products, medical supplies as well as durable medical equipment need to be requested by phone.
Orders will be prepared and the person notified when they will be ready and that they must pick them up at our receiving dock (at the back of the building). The client will be told the cost of the order and can pay with cash or may have give their credit card information when they phoned in – all cash orders must have exact change).
Anyone coming without having phoned first will observe the sign that will be on our main door informing them to ‘come to the dock door’. An order will be taken and the client will be told to wait in their car until it is ready. Pick-up and payment procedures will be the same as above. They will be informed that a phone call is needed for the next order.
Clients wishing to apply as new persons to the prescription program who have phoned in (or who present themselves unannounced) will also come to the dock where they will be given an application to complete in their vehicle. They will have been told to bring their proof of income as well as prescriptions that have been already been checked by our pharmacy to make sure we have the medication. Credit card payment will be encouraged.
