Prescription Med Assistance
NeedyMeds has all kinds of info about patient assistance programs, and also offers a card (for free and you don't have to register) that you can use to get discounts on various meds. Some discounts are small (and generics usually aren't discounted) but some are up to 75%--depends on what the med is. The link has more information and the downloadable card. You use it if you are uninsured or if you are in the Medicare "donut hole." It can't be combined with insurance or other discounts or programs you may be eligible for. I spent about 30 minutes reading about it today and searching for the "cons" of using it, but didn't find anything. If you try this out, let me know how it works for you. If I have occasion to use it, I'll post again about how it worked out.
