Prescription Assistance Reminder

5 posts in this topic

I wanted to mention that there are pharmaceutical companies that will deliver free medications to your home if your income qualifies you for prescription assistance. My insurance covers 80% of my medication which leaves me picking up the remainder. This can be very costly depending on the medication. Since I am taking Cellcept, my out-of-pocket was very high, almost 1/2 of my monthly grocery bill! So I called the number for Partnership for Prescription Assistance and it turned out I qualified! The whole application process took less than a month. I just got my first delivery this week and you would have thought I won the lottery, that's how excited I was!

 

There are companies out there who will help you if you need it!

 

Lots of Hugs!

Razz,

That's fantastic! You hear about things like this but you never know for sure. Thanks for letting us know that it really does work!

 

Partnership for Prescription Assistance and some other sources for low cost medications can be found on our support page for disability resources. As you have proven, it never hurts to ask.

 

Congratulations!

 

Big Hugs,

Razz,

 

That's great! Every little bit helps. I'm sure that's a load off for you.

I tried to apply but they state that I make "too much" to qualify. Seems unfair because a good chunk of my SSD goes to Dr. co pays and prescription co pays as our insurance isn't all that great and SSD isn't a windfall. It's just enough to keep my head above water.

Thanks for the link though and congrats :)

Thanks Janey, Barefut and Karenlee! Every little bit does help. Like Karenlee says by the time you pay your co-pay, deductible and premium, it all adds up to quite a bit of money.

 

I'm always looking for available benefits and ways to make ends meet.

 

 

Hugs,

Razz
