Assistance: Medications & Copays

 

This section contains links to assistance programs that can help pay for medications, necessary medical equipment, or copays.  This help comes in the form of manufacturer coupons available online, through your doctor, or by applying and qualifying for them.  Help is also available from organizations who will provide financial assistance when qualifying patients cannot afford their medications or copays.  Other organizations have discount cards to help lower your out-of-pocket expenses related to medications.  Some pharmaceutical manufacturers will supply free medications through your doctor, so do discuss this alternative with your healthcare professional to see if you are eligible.

Do explore the different websites, as they offer varying benefits.  Keep in mind that you usually need to apply & that many programs have eligibility requirements, often based on (low) income or on having no health insurance coverage.
