I have prescription coverage with my insurance but it is not very helpful.
One way is to go to the webpage for the medication or the main company's webpage thqt makes it, look for a patients assistance link or the contact us link, and contact the company directly. Many do have programs to help people on expensive meds, and if you contact them, they will let you know what documentation they need in order to help you. Patti
Your pharmacy can also help you with that contact. Assistance is based upon need. Each company has its own criteria. Depending upon your income the price could be free. However, if you are receiving medicare or Medicaid there are strict rules about this. Good luck finding your solution.
About a year and a half ago we went through a hard time financially and I went through a patient assistance program and got some help. Even though we had insurance. Now some of it depends on how much income is in the household, and some stuff I didn't qualify for because my hubby made way too much more than their guidlines. I will give you some information. You can go to www.PPARx.org... Partnership for Prescription Assistance. There are several pharmaceutical companies you can call that have patient assistance programs, plus they have long standing patient assistant programs that are helpful too. 1-888-477-2669. Also the one I used was the Patient Advocate Foundation ( A Patient Assistant Program) I used the Co-Pay Relief foundation, and got help. But they have many more programs too. Their number is 866-512-3861. You get assistance for a year, than can reapply if you need to. There is another website that I had written on here called
www.yourrxdiscounts.com. I truly hope this helps you in some way. Good luck to you, and take care. Ruthie
