    Help with Medication or Medical Costs

    ********************************


    Doctors usually have samples, or coupons for free trials. Just ask the doctor.

    Most Major Drug Companies have Patient Assistance Programs to help people that can't afford their medications.

    Get in touch with the company you need help from and they will send (or fax) you a form to fill out to see if you qualify. Your doctor may be required to fill out part of the form.

    Different companies have different rules. Some require the doctor's office to send the script each month, others require you to pick-up your script and send it in yourself.

    In the US, check with county social services to see if you qualify for state Medicaid programs or immediate food or cash assistance programs.

    Stores such as Sam's Club and Costco may have lower prices. You don't have to be a member to use the pharmacy.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Note:

    You will have to fill out paper work and qualify.

    Some offers require a co-pay or a fee for a yearly membership.

    Be aware that some of the companies may be deceptive in their approach.
    Make sure you understand what you are signing up for.
    If an offer is not completely free, you may want to do more research.
