Patient Assistance Programs are programs set up by drug manufacturer companies that offer free and/or low cost name brand medications to uninsured or under-insured individuals who cannot afford their medication. Most expensive brand name medications are found in these patient assistance programs. Various manufacturing pharmaceutical companies offer these programs voluntarily. Although there are governmental programs available, these patient assistance programs are not government funded and the government does not require them to provide free medication.
Each patient assistance program has its own set of guidelines in order to qualify. The set standard an applicant must have in order to qualify for assistance are:
-The applicant must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident
-The applicant must have little to no prescription insurance coverage
-The applicant must have an income at least under 500% of the Federal Poverty Level
