I recently stumbled across this site: www.patientadvocate.org
This site helps individuals with chronic health conditions with assistance programs for medical needs and personal emergencies. I sent them an email, and I am registering for their services.
They have also informed me of several other programs to help uninsured or underinsured individuals with chronic health problems.
First, there is www.uneedpsi.org
This organization helps individuals PAY health insurance premiums (including COBRA and high risk pool plans). They will also help pay copayments.
There is also www.healthwellfoundation.com
I was so surprised to find these sites. How incredible!
Also, I found one more: www.netwish.org
This is a non profit organization that likes to grant "wishes" for up to $500!! Can you imagine?!?!?!
Anyway, these organizations are here to help people who fall through the cracks. Also, you can contact the manufacturer of any medication directly and see if they have a patient assistance program.
The patient advocate foundation (www.patientadvocate.org
) offers assistance with just about any kind of crisis. They also have info in dealing with social security disability applications!
