(Vocus/PRWEB) December 16, 2008
Gloucester, MA (Vocus) December 16, 2008 -- NeedyMeds now helps with the high cost of medications by listing manufacturer's drug discount coupons. With these coupons patients can get free medications or rebates on purchased drugs. NeedyMeds is now the best source of information on these coupons.
Many patients and physicians are unaware of this way to save money on numerous prescription medicines. NeedyMeds has information on nearly 200 coupons. As with all the information on NeedyMeds.org, the information is free, easy to access, and updated regularly.
In cooperation with Xubex Pharmaceuticals, NeedyMeds offers patients the option of completing the coupon requests online and having their medications sent directly to their homes. Xubex handles all the paperwork by contacting the physicain's office for the patient, simplifying the process as coupons require a prescription from a doctor.
NeedyMeds, a Massachusetts-based non-profit, is the best source of information on assistance available for people having difficulties paying for their medications or healthcare. The website (http://www.needymeds.org) is visited by approximately 10,000 people each work day. All the NeedyMeds' information is always free, easy to access, and updated regularly. Unlike similar sites, NeedyMeds requires no registration. All the information is easily printed.
The website provides information on resources that help people with health-related costs:
- Pharmaceutical patient assistance programs that provide medications at no cost
- Disease-based assistance programs that provide help with medical expenses for people with certain diagnoses
- Co-pay foundations that help with the co-pays for certain expensive medications
- Programs run by state and local governments
- Free and low-cost clinics that provide care at a reasonable cost

They participate in all Medicare Part D programs. Their programs are explained at http://www.xubex.com. or by calling 866-699-8239.
