Patient Assistance Programs

Having trouble paying for your medications, even with your prescription drug coverage? Don't be afraid to talk to your health care provider about your costs. Together, you may be able to find medications that work just as well for you, and cost you less.
There are other ways you can lower your costs. This includes help from community health centers, local social service programs or charitable programs.
Many drug manufacturers offer coupons and programs to assist patients. To find out if help is available for your prescription, enter "patient assistance" and the name of your medication in your Internet search engine. You may find some money-saving coupons. You may also find programs that will help you pay some or all of your prescription drug costs.
