Pharmaceutical Patient Assistance Programs
Before I was put on disability and before I had prescription coverage, I did not know what to do about my medicines. I could not afford to get them at the drug store as I did not have the money and I was taking six different medicines at that time. I was blessed at the time to have a wonderful doctor who told me about the pharmacy programs that furnish your medicine. Most go up to incomes of around 28,000 and many go up to incomes of 50,000. All it takes is you getting the forms from the site and having your doctor give you the prescription and sign the paper. They send you a three-month supply at a time.
I have told people about the programs for years and most are so thrilled to hear. But, there are always a few who will continue to complain that they can not afford their medicine but will not go and fill out the papers to get it free from the pharmacy company or at a much reduced price like ten dollars or even twenty dollars. There really is no reason for someone to not take get their medicines when there are so many programs out there.
My son gets his medicine through Wal-Mart’s prescription program. He gets three months of cholesterol medicine for I believe fifteen or twenty dollars. All you have to do is ask them about their program and fill out the papers.
Online programs….these are just a few. Just put in “pharmaceutical patient assistance programs” in your search engine and you will find page of them. Or go straight to the drug company of the med you are looking for.
I hope this helps people who are struggling financially and do not know what to do. It is very easy to apply and the form us usually very short. Also, if you have hospital bills that you do not know what you are going to do to pay them. Go and talk to the hospital financial office. They can help you. They have many programs based on your income.
I know times are tough for so many of us and there are programs but if you do not know where to look, then you do not have the option of choosing the program. I hope this information helps someone out there for I know what it was like to be waiting on disability and not having any insurance and having no job because I could not work. And there I was sent to the hospital to have lung surgery.
