Diabetics concerned over how to pay for their prescription medications now have a resource to help them: Free Medicine Foundation. Although free medicine assistance has been around for more than 50 years, most people have never heard about and do not know how to apply for free medicine. Free Medicine Foundation's mission is to inform the media and the public of assistance that may be available to thousands of Americans who don't even realize they qualify for such help.
People with Type 1 Diabetes or Type 2 Diabetes know that lowering their blood sugar is the key to managing diabetes. Eating healthy and staying active are two ways to lower blood sugar. But many people need more help. They also need to take medicine to help control their blood sugar levels. Many need to take more than one medicine to help treat Diabetes in different ways. That's where Free Medicine Foundation can help.
Many prescription Diabetes medications are available for free or low-cost. The following medicines may be available through a free or low-cost plan located through Free Medicine Foundation: Actos, Amaryl, Avandamet, Avandaryl, Avandia, Avandia, Byetta, Desmopressin, Diabetes Insulin, Glipizide, Glucophage, Glucotrol, Glucovance, Glyburide, Insulin, Humalog, Human Insulin, Humulin 50/50, Humulin 70/30, Humulin Insulin, Humulin N, Humulin R, Humulin U, Insulin aspart (Novolog), Insulin glargine (Lantus), Insulin lispro (Humalog, Insulin prefilled syringes, and cartridges, Lantus, Metformin, Micronase, Minirin Ddavp, Novolin 70/30, Novolin N, Novolin R, NPH human insulin, NPH insulin and hundreds more. Patients can apply for as many medicines as they need; there is no limit. Keep in mind that prescription assistance is available for most all medications.
Free Medicine Foundation works tirelessly to match patients with hundreds of free or low-cost available programs by scouring available medicine assistance plans to find plans that match applicant needs. "Since our inception, we have helped countless families across the nation completely eliminate or substantially reduce their prescription drug bills," says Cindy Randolph, spokesperson for the Free Medicine Foundation organization. "Although we cannot guarantee your approval, if you believe you may qualify to participate, we will be diligent in our efforts to assist you. Past results have proven our program successful."
This program is for those who are falling through the cracks financially, and make just enough money so they don't qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to afford a prescription coverage plan or to buy their own medications. Keep in mind these programs are not just for poor people. For people who find it a hardship to buy their medicines, they should apply for prescription assistance.
Drug sponsors recognize that sometimes exceptions need to be made based on a patient's individual circumstances. Individuals who do not meet these criteria may still qualify if both they and their physicians attest that the patients have special circumstances of financial and medical hardship, and their incomes are below an established limit. With each medication, the income criteria varies from below the poverty level up to $39,200 for individuals, $52,800 for couples, and as high as $80,000 for a family of four.
Upon approval, brand-name free medicines typically arrive in two to three weeks, sent directly to the patient's home, or a coupon is given to take to a local pharmacy or sent to the doctor's office, typically in a 90-day supply. These programs can provide an ongoing lifetime supply of free medication. If the patient is not approved, and receives no medicine, Free Medicine Foundation refunds the full processing fee per no risk money back guarantee. The patient has everything to gain and nothing to lose.
3.4 million seniors will enter the uninsured "doughnut hole" and start paying the next $2,850 out of their own pockets. Free Medicine Foundation can help cut this cost up to 90%. Pet medicines are also available through low-cost assistance programs.
Caregivers, churches and social organizations are encouraged to utilize Free Medicine Foundation's services. Volunteers are needed to help spread the word to those who cannot afford the high costs of prescription medication. Send Free Medicine Foundation an e-mail or call 1-573-996-3333 to request a free supply of brochure-enrollment forms that are designed to provide the patient/applicant with information and an application for the program. Patients can apply directly online or print the application in English or Spanish. Free Medicine Foundation requires a one-time refundable $5 processing fee for each medication requested.
For patients with conditions such as Diabetes that require lifelong medication, Free Medicine Foundation can be a lifesaver. To learn more, apply or request a free brochure visit: http://www.FreeMedicine.com or call 1-573-996-3333.
