Look Into Patient Assistance Programs

If you have no drug coverage, you might find discounts on you drugs through the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, www.pparx.org. This program has links to more than 400 patient-assistance programs offering discounts on more than 2,500 medications. Most programs require you to demonstrate financial need. But some offer discounts to all income levels. You may also try to receive a manufacturer's discount at www.together-rx.com or recommend that your doctor call the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association, www.phrma.org, 202.835.3400 and ask for a guide on some of these programs (patients themselves cannot request this information).
