Lowering the Cost of Medications
A new program is available to help patients buy generic medication if they're unable to afford it.
A first-of-its kind program from NeedyMeds and Rx Outreach helps patients buy generic medication if they’re unable to afford it. Called the Generic Assistance Program (GAP), it will offer nearly 20 generic medications at no cost to eligible people. These drugs are essential to many people’s health.
“There are hundreds of programs that help people with the cost of brand name drugs, but not one that helps with the cost of generic medications,” said Rich Sagall, M.D, president and co-founder of NeedyMeds. “Working with Rx Outreach, we are about to change that.”
“We are excited about this new program,” said Michael Holmes, president of Rx Outreach. “It will allow us to help many people who otherwise would have had to go without either their medications or be unable to pay for other necessities like food or rent.”
Information and details on the program are available on the NeedyMeds website.
There you will find all the program particulars and an application. There is also a helpline in English and Spanish: 888-203-7687.
