NeedyMeds continues to grow and expands its collaborations and Web site resources

NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, has partnered with the Raynaud's Association and the American Transplant Foundation to offer two new Disease Resource Pages on NeedyMeds' Web site. The new pages are tailored for those with Raynaud's and those who need information about Transplants. Further increasing its collaborative efforts, NeedyMeds has also recently entered into several new drug discount card partnerships.

The Disease Resource Pages were created as a "one stop shopping" concept to save patients and advocates time when trying to compile accurate and targeted information on specific diseases. There are currently 59 pages and new pages are added frequently.

The Raynaud’s Resource Page, created in collaboration with the Raynaud’s Association, provides information on this disease and lists financial resources that help with the cost of the drugs used to treat Raynaud’s. This comprehensive information source is found at http://www.needymeds.org/resourcepages/Raynauds.htm.

The Transplant Resource Page, created in collaboration with the American Transplant Foundation, provides information for those in need of or have already received a transplant. Also included are resources and guidance for living donors. This all-inclusive resource is found at http://www.needymeds.org/resourcepages/transplant.htm.

Collaborations between NeedyMeds and other disease-based organizations are sought to reach a larger group of people needing support and assistance in a time of shrinking resources. Each organization is committed to serving those in need.

NeedyMeds has also seen a steady increase in NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card Partnerships, with over 100 partnerships total. The free NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card can be used to save up to 80% off the price of prescription medications. The card may be used by those without insurance and by those who decide not to use their insurance - for example if the drug is not covered under their plan, the copay or deductible is too high, the cap has been reached, or they are in the donut hole.

NeedyMeds works with organizations and communities to create co-branded cards, increasing awareness for the partner and the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card. In addition to a current partnership with the City of Gloucester, NeedyMeds has also partnered with the City of Lowell and plans to continue to expand relationships with cities and communities in order to help residents in need.
