Drugs, just for illustration

We know that prescription drugs are expensive in many countries, especially in the USA. Great number of people can not afford to have them.

Governments and charities (religious, community or private) provide help to certain groups, especially for lower income families to access to prescription medications for free of cost.

The problems are to who neither rich nor poor. Unfortunately, these groups may have no or less chance to have even lower cost of prescription drugs.

All of us might know that switch from brand name drugs to generic ones could cost less from 50% to 85%. But, we still pay and very expensive sometimes.

Then, How to Find Free Prescription Drugs or at least some help?

Through internet, we may find many institutions (private, government or non profit) to provide free medications or discount for drugs or even free health care cost.

Many programs limit to certain criteria such as for low and medium incomes of families, but other criteria such as age and chronic diseases might good for you.

Few examples of institutions are following:

1) Non profit organizations. Just few are:
- Help for cancer patients for free drugs
- “Partnership for Prescription drugs” to help people with insurance, but not cover for prescription drugs
- NeedyMeds, provide databases to who can’t afford prescription drugs and health care costs

  14. Hello
    I have a chronic illness and so I don't pay for my medications and it has nothing to do with my income but with the disease that I have. But these institutions are a great help !!
