Federal and state governments are constantly coming up with new programs to help pay for prescription drugs, so it is important to check into your state's program every few months. You can find more information about some of these programs by going to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, http://cms.hhs.gov/medicaid/; NeedyMeds, www.needymeds.com; RxHope, www.rxhope.com/pap_info.asp and RxAssist, www.rxassist.org, or www.ncsl.org/programs/health/drugaid.htm. Some states have multiple programs and others do not have the funds to advertise their programs, so it may take a little research. You can also contact you local state health representative to see what programs may not be listed.
