Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
Is your medication too expensive for your budget? If so, information in a new, free booklet might help.
The Cost Containment Research Institute in Washington, DC has just published a 33-page booklet "Free and Low Cost Prescription Drugs 8th 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."
Not all people will qualify for the programs. There are 103 programs and 1,104 drugs listed. Qualifications vary by manufacturer. In the last ten years thousands of people have used these programs to receive free prescription medication.
Consumers can download the booklet for free from The Institute's Internet web site: http://www.institutedc.org
