  • Patient Assistance Programs

    • Partnership for Prescription Assistance

      • Partnership for Prescription Assistance was launched in 2005 as a centralized site for help with patient assistance prescription coverage.  Pharmaceutical, local and national organizations participate to bring more than 475 public and private patient assistance programs together in one place.  The Partnership for Prescription Assistance was formed because many Americans do not know that they may qualify for free or low-cost medication.  To find out if you qualify for an assistance program go to the Partnership for Prescription Assistance web site www.pparx.org or call 1-888-477-2669 (toll free) for more information.
