 Pharmaceutical Companies

To get the process started, you need to mail an application to the drug company with information about your financial situation. You can usually download an application from the company’s website and fill it out online. In most cases, your doctor will need to provide information about your prescriptions.

The drug company will review the application and tell you if you’re eligible for assistance. If approved, many companies will ship a supply of the drug to your home or your doctor’s office. You or your doctor will need to place a new order several weeks before the supply runs out.

General Prescription Savings Programs
Some states, non-profit organizations, and retail pharmacies offer drug discount cards. A few are free. You can get others for a low monthly or annual fee. If you’re buying, be sure to go with a reputable organization.

Take caution. Unfortunately, some people sell fake discount cards to try to get credit card and social security numbers. Be aware that discount cards are not health insurance. Before you sign up for any discount card, make sure it comes with clear terms and conditions and at least a 30-day refund policy.
