Talking For uninsured and underinsured

________________________________________ ____________

I recently stumbled across this site: [url]www.patientadvocate.org[/url]

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 [url]www.uneedpsi.org[/url]
This organization helps individuals PAY health insurance premiums (including COBRA and high risk pool plans). They will also help pay copayments.


There is also [url]www.healthwellfoundation.com[/url]




I was so surprised to find these sites. How incredible!

Also, I found one more:

[url]www.netwish.org[/url]
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 ([url]www.patientadvocate.org[/url]) offers assistance with just about any kind of crisis. They also have info in dealing with social security disability applications!

Best wishes,
Leslie

Re: For uninsured and underinsured

For patients that do not have medcation coverage on their insurance or if they have no insurance to [url]www.needymeds.com[/url] it is a portal to pharmacuetical programs to get your meds from the company that makes them for a small copay or for free. You do have to apply for each med individually and it often takes 6-8 weeks. The site is pretty self explanatory.
