Medication Warning!

I have noticed some drug companies charge to do patient assistance program paperwork for clients.  As a former director of a non-profit that does this service free of charge, I have a problem with this.  People that really need this service can not afford to pay for this service. Nor do they need to!
Dear friend, please be careful, some companies charge close to $100 for this service.  There are many non-profits who will do this paperwork for free.  You can also do them yourself .  If you need help, ask a nurse in your doctor's office. A minimal fee of less than $10 per Rx is understandable if you can afford that. Click on the comments for more info from my good friend Suzanne.

Amy and I were in the same profession. You can do this service for yourself. Just go to or and you can look up a medication to see if the company has an assistance program. You can then print out the application, fill it out and staple your income information to it, take it to your doctor for signature and then mail it out. Most companies send a three month supply four times a year. Before your year is up be sure to re-enroll in the program.

This way you don't have to pay money for someone else to do it for you. If you have any questions please feel free to ask Amy or I. Suzanne
