I’ve touched on health care and one of the primary concerns I’ve found is the cost of prescriptions. While you may save by going to the smaller clinics, there seems to be very little than can be done about the cost of prescriptions.
If someone is not working and can’t afford doctor bills, how are they going to afford paying monthly prescription bills? With this kind of a problem, people are playing a dangerous game with their health.
I did a little digging and found a web site – www.pparxor.org. It asks you for basic information (prescriptions, age, household income – no identifying info) and walks you through some steps. Once you finish this, it will bring up a list of programs you may qualify for – whether government or private industry.
Their web site says their goal is to “increase awareness of and enrollment in existing patient assistance programs for those who may be eligible.”
They do not help you with your prescriptions, they help direct you to the programs available that may.
