help with medication costs April 21, 2005 4:10 PM

The best site I have found for free meds is http://www.rxassist.org/default.cfm I have been using them for years. The only drugs I cannot get through this site is klonopin (because I am on Medicare, an unusual restriction), and restoril (because it is not listed). The klonopin costs me $21/mo. and the restoril is less than $10/mo. I hope this helps. Hugs, Donna  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Help with prescription drug costs March 01, 2007 9:14 AM

For anyone who lives in Arizona, there is a program through Rx America that is free to Arizona residents.  It is a discount drug program, but the copays are sometimes less than what I would pay using my insurance.  I would imagine other states have something similar.  This has saved me a lot of money, what with the high cost of prescription drugs!

**SPECIAL NOTICE**

To all members who have Medicare Part-D

For those who take medications that do not have a generic available, there is a "gap" in coverage and it will leave you to having to find other ways to get assistance when getting your meds.

Many of the drugs makes have assistance programs and when you request help from them, be sure to add info or letter stating you have no coverage because of the gap.

It will save you time, stress and maybe some financial hardships..

anonymous Help for those without prescription coverage.. it does work April 13, 2009 8:00 AM

Here is an article link along with some other sites where you can get assistance with prescriptions.

There are several places that help those in need of prescription medications, that are without insurance, or insurance does not pay. I went through the process for myself, before I got my disability, and now I have helped my husband get his meds for either free from these companies or for very little cost.


I found this article today and wanted to share the information with all of you.

The one thing I have noticed is that doctors, knowing people are "cash" paying patients, do not for some reason mention how to get their medications cheaper,

or for free. I know they must know about the places, since there is even advertising on television.


Here are some and a link to the article. It does work, you just have to get the initial paperwork filled out correctly and also have your doctor fill his part in.

http://www.patientassistance.com//


http://www.patientadvocate.org/


These are a few, and the article has links to several others also. It is worth the time to get the paperwork (many times you can download it from their websites, print it, and then fill it out, along with your doctor filling his portion out, and sending it in. After that, then usually if your doctor puts refills on the medications, you can call in, and get the refills delivered right to your door.


Hope this helps... I know it has helped us immensely. My husbands medications are so expensive, there is no way we could afford them, and try and also pay for doctors visits.
