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.

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 partici-
pants to pay a flat fee of $12 for a 30-day supply of any
Lilly retail drug. Potential annual savings is $600 per med-
ication 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
My doctor told me about this one.
There is help available for the many millions of people who have no insurance and can't afford to purchase their medicines.

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.
