The Partnership for Prescription Assistance brings together America’s
pharmaceutical companies, doctors, other health care providers, patient advocacy
organizations and community groups to help qualifying patients who lack
prescription coverage get the medicines they need through the public or private
program that’s right for them. Many will get them free or nearly free. Its
mission is to increase awareness of patient assistance programs and boost
enrollment of those who are eligible. Through this site, the Partnership for
Prescription Assistance offers a single point of access to more than 475 public
and private patient assistance programs, including more than 180 programs
offered by pharmaceutical companies. To access the Partnership for Prescription
Assistance by phone, you can call toll-free, 1-888-4PPA-NOW (1-888-477-2669).
In order to find out what patient assistance programs you may qualify for, all you have to do is answer a few short eligibility questions. This site will help supply you with the information you need to get involved in a program and even allow you to download applications online. You can then follow the instructions on the application to apply.
