Better than a Medicare Discount Card - Free Prescription Drugs

Share Article

Pharmaceutical manufacturers have patient assistance programs that give away millions of dollars worth of free medication annually. Booklet explains how and where to go for help - A to Z list of programs and a cross reference of prescription drugs.

Is your medication too expensive for your budget? If so, information in a new booklet might help.

The Cost Containment Research Institute in Washington, DC has published a 48-page booklet "Free and Low Cost Prescription Drugs 7th Edition." The revised booklet gives information on how and where to get free and low cost prescription drugs.

"Many major drug companies provide free or low cost medication, but rarely, if ever publicize the programs," says Gary Nave, director of The Institute. "We've published an A to Z listing of all the drugs that are available through patient assistance programs, for free or at very low cost directly from the manufacturer."

Consumers can receive a copy by sending $6 to cover the cost of printing, postage and handling to: Institute Fulfillment Center, Booklet #: PDB-78, P.O. Box 210, Dallas, PA 18612-0210. Consumers can also get more information from The Institute's Internet web site:
