low cost prescriptions

Apr 10, 2006

I have lost my insurance at work as I lost hours at work. I can't really afford $500/month for cobra. Are there any financial assistant programs for hiv patients for medications?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Unfortunately, you're not alone in this situation. There are many who have difficulty in paying for HIV medications, even here in the US.

There are a variety of patient assistance programs for HIV medications. Which ones, if any, that you qualify for depend on the particulars of your financial situation and where you live.

I'd look up your local AIDS service organization and contact them for advice.

Good luck, BY
