I have just recently diagnosed as having HIV/AIDS and my ID doc prescribed Atripla.I am in the process of applying for SS Disability and Medicaid and am told I will not be turned down. In the meantime I am not able to afford the med d/t cost of over $1800 for 30 day supply. Is there any help with paying for the prescription until I get help? The HIV/AIDS support group in OK where I am does not help with meds cause of where I live. Any help/suggestions are appreciated.
There are some resources for obtaining meds you cant afford. You may first want to ask your pharmacist who manufactures the medicine and ask if they have a contact phone number for this manufacturer or google the name of the manufacturer to find out if they have a patient assistance program, many do. If that is a no go I have other resources. CoPay relief Program 1-866-512-3861 or www.copay.org; Suddenly Senior (you dont have to be a senior to use) www.suddenlysenior.com/patientassistantprograms.html; Needy Meds www.needymeds.org; Partnership for Prescription Assistance 1-888-477-2669 or www.pparx.org. Hope one of these helps!
There are different organizations that help people who cant afford treatments and doctor visits and such.Depend on you r location, look for CARE RESOURSE. They work w MED and susch also w RYAN WHITE.RYAN WHITE IS AN ORGANIZATION who paid for treatments , med, doctors etc if you qualified.My best advice to you is to ask your case manager or get one.You can also look for ADDA pharmacies they take care of med for people who cant pay for it or dont have insurance.I dont know your existing condition how bad or not is.I have being HIV since 1989, best thing change life style if needed, nutrition and rest are essential, exercisses as well.Stay away from alcohol and drugs, if applies`to you,and unless you are really sick and not capable to function, please dont give up and try to stay active and productive, it will really help you, specially with tendencies to be depress and self steem issues. If you take care of yourself you will be healthy and you will be able to live a healthy productive life like many of us with out the need of dessabilities and such. God bless you and good luck.
