Patient Assistance Programs

February 1999

Many of the drugs we take have patient assistance programs that can help people who have difficulty in getting their medications (due to lack of insurance, inadequate insurance, low income,etc.). These patient assistance programs are set up by the pharmaceutical companies and can often provide the drug for free if the person qualifies. Details and qualifications vary greatly between programs, and usually your doctor will need to make the call. Accompanying this is a current list of drug company patient assistance numbers.
