RX Costs Too High


Aug 1, 2002

Coalition Offers Information to Help

Can't afford the prescription drugs you need?

"There are over 70 programs from major drug manufacturers that provide free or low-cost medication. These programs are rarely, if ever, publicized," says Chris Pongsak, a researcher at the Prescription Assistance Coalition, which publishes a booklet and a special report on which drugs are available.

The booklet contains information on how and where to get free and low-cost prescription medications from manufacturers. The special report gives step-by-step instructions on how to obtain prescription drug discount cards that can be used at your local pharmacy.

For a copy of both publications, send $5 for postage and handling to Central Fulfillment Center, Free Prescription Drug Booklet Offer #FPD0516, P.O. Box 408342, Chicago, Illinois 60640-8342.

Most programs, I am finding, are at the discretion of the Pharmacies. They seem to give you a discount once, then (convienantly)forget about the programs they offer. They play mom and Pop games and create so much frustration you tend to shy away from forcing the issue. Thus the benefits become only an advertising ploy.
