    9/17/03 I've edited original post and removed links that no longer work. Will periodically check website links. Please feel free to add to list -- have stickied thread. Karen


    I have gathered up all these for a friend of mine on disability.

    I thought I would share what I found with all of you. In hopes you will pass on the information, also.
    Not sure if this is the right forum to post this.
    These #'s and links are for all ages. Not just people on SSI.
    ============================

    Millions of low-income seniors "and people with disabilities" don't qualify for prescription drug coverage under Medicare but can't afford the medicines they need. To help, Eli Lilly and Co. has launched a new patient assistance program called LillyAnswers. The LillyAnswers card allows eligible participants to pay a flat fee of $12 for a 30-day supply of any Lilly retail drug. Potential annual savings is $600 per medication under Lilly's $12 fee. More than five million Americans are eligible for the program. Enrollment is free and began for eligible seniors on Tuesday, with participat-
    ing pharmacies accepting the card beginning on April 1. Enrollment applications are available by calling toll-free 1-877-RX-LILLY. For more information, visit http://www.lillyanswers.com/

    Free Medication and 'script assitance
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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). Here is a list of psychotropic medications with corresponding companies that feature patient-assistance programs and their contact numbers.

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

    i just checked this post out for curiousity's sake. i personally have been telling people/patient's to check out walmart. they have $4 prescriptions - no prescription plan needed, you just have to bring in an original script. walmart has been slowly, steadily adding to their lists of $4 meds. there are some that aren't on the list but there may be an acceptable alternative if the doc okays it. like one statin for another or one beta-blocker for another. anyhow, just an easy way for people to gets meds and even cheaper than the mail-order programs. just check out their website for details ( i sound like a commercial!)
