There are numerous prescription drug assistance programs available to low income as well as uninsured families. Vouchers as well as free or low cost medications may be provided to those in need of help. The assistance is available from many sources, including pharmaceutical companies or charities. The government also has a number of benefit programs that can help pay for some or all of a prescription drug.
Qualifications and income limits will vary widely. Some of the assistance is offered for the low income, seniors, or those without health insurance. Other programs and agencies can help more moderate or middle income patients. In many cases people with an unexpected financial emergency or hardship may qualify for free or affordable medications, both generic or brand name drugs.
Based on qualifications, there may be financial aid to pay for the deductible on any health insurance policy or a prescription discount card given to the patient for ongoing use. This type of support can be combined with free medications, including on refills if the condition will last for an extended period of time. The bottom line is that a struggling family may be able to get free or low cost prescription drugs from a number of different sources.
