If you’re like the rest of America’s citizens, chances are you have a prescription for at least one medication. And, just as others, you may be struggling to pay for the cost of this prescription or other prescribed treatments. Health insurance is expensive. Additionally, many Americans are no longer eligible for their preferred health insurance. This is due to previous medical history which disqualifies them for PPOs and affordable marketplace deductibles. But, there is a solution to high priced medications and minimal or no health insurance–prescription drug assistance programs. It’s normal to have questions about programs that can help completely cover or severely discount the cost of your medications. So, in this article, we attempt to answer the most common questions new enrollees have about our programs.
What are Prescription Drug Assistance Programs?
Prescription drug assistance programs are programs specifically designed to help individuals who would otherwise not be able to afford prescription medications do so. They are offered by a number of nonprofit organizations and pharmaceutical manufacturers as an effort to reduce the number of individuals who are unable to receive medical treatment. Currently, there are over 700 patient assistance programs, and they are all free to utilize.
How Do I Know if I’m Qualified for Prescription Drug Assistance Programs?
Since there are over 700 of these programs, the eligibility requirements may differ with each. But, for the most part, they all expect applicants to have some of the same characteristics. These eligibility characteristics include:
- Citizenship of the United States
- Above the age of 18
- Annual income below the federal poverty level
- Minimal or no prescription coverage through insurance
- Prescription for medication covered under the program
