I am curious about the patient RX programs. I applied for an assistance program for Cellcept, because next year I'll be without insurance for five months and will not be able to afford it. I hope that the criteria does not include the medication to be used for a transplant....surely not, but you just never know. Anyone know the answer to this? I take it for my lungs, to slow the progression.

I'm sorry that I have no personal experience to offer on your question. But if your current application doesn't come through you might check out the services provided through some of the Free Medication Programs listed on ISN. NeedyMeds.com looks interesting.

Good luck!

I don't know about Rx Programs but I do know my best friend contacted the drug company directly, via website and they had their own assistance programs. She ended up getting her meds for free.
