Check out facilities such as Community Action Centers, Your local Human Resources Departments, which can be located under Jobs and Family Services in most locations, Catholic Organizations, FISH Organization, Senior Citizens, Your local hospital social services department. Your Physician's office, Clinics, etc.. Many of these organizations can help you find the resources needed to help pay for costs of medications. Age, sex, financial ability doesn't always play a part in needing assistance with medications.Information on this site can be a benefit to you. Copy the IP addresses of links that may benefit you, copy the page and take it to your physician. Remember that these are resources for you and your doctor to help you in the cost of your medications. Your own physician has access to many of the pharmaceutical companies that can assist you in cost. He or She has the capabilities of proving hardship just from talking to you and your own medical history. Utilize the source that is prescribing the medications.. Many of us cannot do it on our own; we need the help of others to achieve the goals of saving money on our medications. The health care advocates of Physicians, Nurses, Social Workers, Care Managers and the many other titles out there are here to help you in obtaining the best care possible including affording medications that are necessary for life. The information provided to you on this site is to assist you and should be discussed with your health care provider to ensure that it is the right resource for you and could be of benefit to help defer the costs of your medications.
