Prescription Assistance Program Review

Updated on December 19, 2011

Do you need help with getting prescription drugs and do not have prescription drug coverage? You may want to keep reading. Prescription drug costs keep going up and there are many people who can not afford to carry insurance to cover the high costs of medications. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance may be able to help. Their mission is to help those qualifying people who do not have prescription drug coverage to be able to get their medications, and many get them for free or nearly free of cost. You may be able to get help with over 2,500 medicines through 475 patient assistance programs. The service they provide is free of charge.

If you are uninsured you can find out if you qualify for help for free. There are many different patient assistance programs that are available. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance can help you through the process of determining if you qualify and which program or programs you would can get free or low cost medications through. Their official website is at

Prescription Assistance Programs

The PPA or Partnership for Prescription Assistance will help patients who qualify for the programs and who do not have prescription drug coverage, get the medications and medicines they need. They would get the medicines that they need through the best program for their needs. The PPA never charges for this service and most patients get their medications for free or at a significantly discounted price.

How it Works:

1. Tell them the medicines you take,
2. Provide basic information about yourself,
3. Get the results about which prescription assistance programs you may qualify for,
4. Complete the application process and applications to each program you want to apply.

      I would like a price on the following medicines I take. I am on SS and need help. I do not have a participating drug program I am associated with. My SS income along with my husband is $644.00 for me and $1,350.00 for my husband. He has stopped taking drugs because of the cost. I am 75 and he is 76 years of age.

      Generic or something acceptable as replacements for: Divan HCT, 310/25mg; Exforce 10-320mg and Crestor 10mg. My husband was taking Atenanol, Simivastatin, and Doxazosin.

      Appreciate what ever help you can give.
