      this one is for Seniors, disabled uninsured and others

      State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs
      (includes seniors, disabled, uninsured and others)


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      As of February 15, 2004 at least 38 states have established or authorized some type of program to provide pharmaceutical coverage or assistance, primarily to low-income elderly or persons with disabilities who do not qualify for Medicaid. Most programs utilize state funds to subsidize a portion of the costs, usually for a defined population that meets enrollment criteria, but others use discounts or bulk purchasing approaches.

          . free medication for low income and elderly
          Lithium info ... see also Lithium (National Library of Medicine) ... There are companies who offer free medications to low-income people.
          http://www.lorenbennett.org/freemeds.htm

          There are some pharmaceutical companies that offer free medications to low-income families. They require a doctor's consent and proof of your financial status. Depending on what your insurance covers, you may be able to apply. A few companies even allow family incomes as high as $40,000 annually (offset by expenses, of course).

          Maryland residents who need free medications can receive assistance in obtaining them. MEDBANK of Maryland, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide access to prescription medications for chronically ill, low-income, underinsured/uninsured Maryland residents. MEDBANK assists healthcare providers and patients in completing the paperwork required to enroll patients in Pharmaceutical Company Patient Assistance Programs. The program is now available statewide. Those interested in more information about the Maryland Medbank Program should call (410) 821-9262.

          Here is a list of psychotropic medications with corresponding companies that feature patient-assistance programs and their contact numbers. Each medication listed has a link to either drug information provided at the pharmaceutical company website, or, if that is not available, information from Internet Mental Health.

          Note: Some of these companies may prefer to speak directly with your doctor

                  my aunt has some numbers from places she gets discounts and all type of free medicine from. (each number does diff meds for her) i ment to get them today when i was talking to her but I forgot but will call her back to get them.

                  As for these site. I've never used any of them but tried to check them out as well as i could. Like looking to make sure they don't have anything against them in the bbb website.

                  Anytime any of you decide to uses these site please do your own reseach by checking threw the b.b.b. just in case something new has came against one of these companies.
                  this thread was back in April of this year so I really would recheck them before i used them.
                  I'm just happy if just one of these sites help one person it makes all the work worth wild to me.
                  I've gotten behind when i got so ill, but i'm doing much better and with Christmas coming up they should be updateing there sites soon with funds I will be on the look out to see If i can find some updates so you all will know who has funds and who doesn't
                  just plz remember to check them out before using them.

                  Thank you for your kind words

                    I have also found needymeds.com to be SO helpful. very easy to use site and informative.

                    For the person who asked, there is a link there that will say "first time users click here" just click on that, it should explain things. Basically you can look up the drug by brand name or generic, then click on it and it will give you the instructions about how to download the application and what the requirements are.

                    The only bad thing I've found, is most of these programs will only send the drugs to the prescribing dr. Well, I'm in a study at a hospital 75 miles away. I dont know if my local dr will prescribe what I need (and thus, more office calls, of which of course I have no insurace to cover!) ugh.

                      My aunt doesn't have to see her doctor when she goes pick up her medicine all she has to do is go in and tell them her name and the medicine she is there to pick up. That way there is no ex. charge to her.
                      Janice could you call and ask your dr. office if you could do that without seeing the doctor each time you go in? that way all your doing is running in to get your medicine.
                      If the doctor will order it sometimes the drug companies will fed ex or UPS your medicine to your home. then all you have to do is show your I.D and sign for it.
                      I would call your dr. office and see how they can help you with this.
                      I hope it all works out for the best so you can get your medicine without having to pay to see you doctor each time.

                      Which honestly it doesn't seem like you would have to see your doctor each time to just pick up your medicine unless you need a new RX or you are sick for some reason and its a must see visit.
                      I'm still waiting to get those numbers she has so i can post them. She was sick today when i called her so i didn't even ask her for them, but once she is feeling better I will get them. I PROMISE.
                      she told me each number she has. (about six or seven of them) helps her with diff. meds she either gets them free or at a very low discount price. she doesn't have no RX coverage, but yet she gets ssd and draws off her late husband and isn't hurting for money either. (i wish we all could say that LOL) so I do believe if they help her they will help many of us others out here without drug coverage. I know she makes over the limit for most of the drug companies I find on line so i believe once i can get those number from her it will help many many people here.

                        Hi Rhonda, well for me its more about getting them to prescribe it in the first place, I don't think the picking up part will be an issue. But I don't know if I will have to come in for more office calls, just to get the stuff prescribed for me is what I meant, and then who knows, sometimes you have to switch meds/med combinations. . I'll have to see.

                        I guess the important part is getting the medications, LOL!

                        Thanks!
