Drug Cost Assistance Programs
Drug Cost Assistance Programs:
A legal and safe way for seniors to better afford their Rx medications
Senior citizens have a legitimate cost saving alternative
to resorting to the illegal and unsafe practice of importing
their Rx medications from Canada or other countries… in
the form of various cost-saving prescription drug manufacturer
programs. These programs offer substantial assistance to qualified
low-income seniors. Many are unaware of this opportunity.
For instance, the Together Rx program, a joint effort of major
prescription drug manufacturers, founded by Abbott Laboratories,
AstraZeneca, Aventis, Bristol Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline,
Janssen, Novartis, and Ortho-McNeil… offers qualified
low-income seniors the opportunity to save approximately 20%
to 40% on many of their products.
Each company has its own individual program, but the Together
Rx program allows a patient to carry one card… rather
than a wallet full. Pfizer and Lilly also offer substantial
savings to qualified seniors through their own savings programs.
Here’s a quick table of contact information pharmacists
can offer seniors so they can find out more about these programs.
