Lightbulb patient assistance program

hello all. it occurred to me that i found a potentially valuable resource for a fellow acne sufferer and should share it with everyone else here too. there is a program for people who need medication and cannot afford the exorbitant prices. you can either do a search with the words, "roche patient assistance" and it'll bring the page right up, or you can call, toll-free 877-757-6243. i have no affiliation with roche, btw, but know first hand the emotional devastation of acne and the frusteration with not being able to have access to certain medications because of the insanely high prices of both insurance and the medications themselves.

best to you all, ali

Re: patient assistance program

Hi arock,

I'm lucky enough to have insurance, but I think that this is a great post. I see messages on this board all the time from people who can't afford perscription products because they don't have any insurance. Thanks for passing this on!
