Dot Rx

Dot Rx is a low-, or no-cost prescription-based program available to Dorchester residents who seek care at Codman Square Health Center. The goal of the program is to connect more families to experiences that promote healthier lives — including opportunities to eat healthy, get outside, and be active. We believe that when kids and families have access to positive eating, exercise, and outdoor experiences, they will feel empowered to make healthy lifestyle choices every day.

Patients with a DotRx prescription get connected to a peer health coach who also lives in the community. This coach will help them set personal and family goals around eating, exercise, and engaging with the outdoors. Additionally, the coach will connect them with specific opportunities and resources through Daily Table, the Dorchester YMCA, Healthworks Community Fitness, and Union Capital Boston.

Ask your Codman medical provider today if you qualify for Dot Rx!

This program is run in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and with the support of Union Capital Boston, Daily Table, the Dorchester YMCA, and Healthworks Community Fitness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patient statements are issued on a weekly basis for any new patient responsibilities that have been identified within the previous week. For accounts with balances less than $25.00, additional statements are issued every five weeks. For accounts with balances of $25.00 or more, if the patient has not paid the balance by the time the next statement is due, the account is referred to our reminder agency, which then begins a series of letters and calls reminding them that their balance is overdue.  No additional statements are sent out.
