Many of our personal injury clients and Social Security disability claimants have trouble affording the many prescription drugs they need to take. A group called The Institute has published a free book listing medications, along with a phone number for each drug. You can call and find out if you qualify for a free or low-cost drug program offered by the manufacturer of the medication. The book is available online here. Here is the description from the Web site:
Washington DC — Is your medication too expensive for your budget? Information in a new, free booklet may help.
The revised eighth edition, “Free and Low Cost Prescription Drugs” 33 pages, now includes one hundred and three programs and 1,104 drug listings. The booklet gives proven tips, tools and tactics on how and where to get free and low cost prescription drugs.
“Many major drug companies provide free or low cost medication, but rarely publicize the programs.”, says Gary Nave, director of The Institute. “We’ve published an alphabetical listing of all the drugs that are available to people for free or at very low cost directly from the manufacturer.”
Program qualification varies between manufacturers, usually family incomes ranging from below the national poverty level up to $65,000.00 annually can qualify.
Decisions concerning which medications are provided and which individuals are accepted into the programs are made by the various program sponsors.
Free medicine or more specifically free prescription drugs have been available for over twenty five years. Isn’t it worth your effort to see if you qualify for free medicine or free prescription drugs.
