Most drug manufacturers sponsor what’s called Patient Assistance Programs. These programs are intended to help those who can’t afford their prescription drugs obtain them absolutely FREE!
The ever-changing requirements and the application process to qualify for patient assistance programs are tedious, confusing and very time-consuming. You may contact the drug manufacturer(s) directly to find out more about specific patient assistance program(s). The information is available free of charge. The one-time processing fee of $1.00 fee billed by the Free Medicine Program, is not a charge for the PAP application forms. We, at Free Medicine Program, found that some people might have difficulty navigating the application process and need help – the fee partly covers the administrative expenses of researching the right program(s) for them, maintaining a database of the most recent PAP forms, processing and mailing the paperwork. The fee is refunded if we are unable to find you the assistance in obtaining prescription medicines free of charge, or at a significantly reduced cost, as per our guarantee. In addition, a large number of people, including qualified doctors, nurses, social workers, and other health professionals, are not aware that these programs even exist – Free Medicine Program promotes the program, as well as prints and distributes program brochures nationwide.
We, at Free Medicine Program, cut through the red tape by actually assisting you in applying for enrollment in patient assistance programs, and with the cooperation of your physician, you may be able to obtain prescription medicine free of charge.
According to PhRMA, in 2004 alone, 6.2 million people received 18 million prescriptions with an estimated value of more than $3.3 billion, thanks to the manufacturer’s patient assistance programs!
