Prescriptions Assistance Programs

The cost of medication can be a heavy financial burden even with insurance benefits. A number of themajor pharmaceutical companies provide some type of patient assistance programs to help with the cost of medication.Start by asking your physician’s office for help. Most medical offices have at least oneperson on staff that can help you determine if the pharmaceutical company that manufactures yourmedication has an assistance program.Two programs that are available include Together Rx Access and Partnership for Prescription Assistance. Together Rx Access is a prescription savings program that ten pharmaceutical companies founded together. This service is free and could save you from 25-40% on both brand name and generic medication. There is no fee and only three eligibility requirements:

1. No prescription drug coverage

2. Not eligible for Medicare
