Affording Medications: Partnership for Prescription Assistance

I was waiting in a local free medical clinic paying a courtesy call when I saw a brochure for the Partnership for Prescription Assistance.  Some comments: The website is updated frequently.  The site is sponsored by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), which is composed of drug companies in the U.S.  This is their lobbying organization in Washington, D.C.  For the asthma and allergy medications I prescribe, it still seems quicker and easier to me to go to the drug's own website and print off the savings cards, or coupons, or patient assistance forms.  I listed an analogous site on 5/16/10 for coupons which leads to coupons.  All may help.  My strategy would be to attack from all sides, because there is no one website I've found that can help all of my patients.  I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion.

I am the Coupon King! Ask for them, download them, & use them.
