Need Help with your Prescription Medicines – Learn about Prescription Savings Programs

Posted Mar 12 2011 12:50pm
Although long-term solutions may be on the horizon with the new health care law, in the interim, more than 50 million Americans are uninsured. With the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, which has reached epidemic proportions, people without prescription coverage often struggle to afford necessary and life-saving medications and products.  

Fortunately, resources, such as prescription savings programs, are available that can help now when people need it most. One such program is Together Rx Access ®, which offers eligible individuals and their families meaningful savings on a variety of brand-name prescription medicines and products right at the pharmacy counter. Savings are also available on a wide range of generics. Medicines in the Program include those used to treat high cholesterol, diabetes, depression, asthma, and many other common conditions.

Together Rx Access is committed to collaborating with organizations dedicated to creating awareness about the impact of chronic disease, such as the American Diabetes Association, to inform uninsured individuals with these conditions about options to help them better afford their medicines.

Other savings options are available through the Partnership for Prescription Assistance , which is a clearinghouse of more than 475 public and private assistance programs. Individuals may also qualify for free medicines, or learn about free clinics in their neighborhoods through the Partnership for Prescription Assistance.
