Prescription Assistance

Prescription Assistance helps people gain access to drug company assistance programs supplying prescription medications at low or no cost.

The drug manufacturer has the final authority regarding approval of your application. The Prescription Assistance Program cannot guarantee you will receive the medication you requested free of charge. The assistance provided by the drug manufacturer is generally intended to be temporary. The drug manufacturer's program may be limited by available funding and may be modified or discontinued at any time.

Not all prescription medications are available. Some drug manufacturers do not have a prescription assistance program.

You can also request medication assistance from various pharmaceutical companies without applying for Prescription Assistance. The following are links to pharmaceutical companies and programs providing other types of assistance.
