Patient Assistance Programs

Patient Assistance

The # 1 goal at Medicationcoupons.com is to help people save money on medication. In this newsletter, we are focusing on how thousands of people receive FREE medication from patient assistance programs.

Do you qualify to receive free medication?

Does anyone in your household qualify to receive free medication?

Find out as we explore Patient Assistance Programs..

Each year, thousands of people receive discounted or free medication from patient assistance programs or PAPs. Pharmaceutical companies develop patient assistance programs to provide prescription medications to uninsured or under insured patients who have difficulty affording them. Annually, patient assistance programs are responsible for giving away millions of dollars in prescription medications. Patients must meet specific guidelines in order to qualify for patient assistance. Two general guidelines that most patient assistance programs require are the following:

  • Your family’s income must be within 200% of federal poverty guidelines.
  • Private insurance or a government program must not cover the medication(s) you apply for.

In addition to the guidelines mentioned above, each patient assistance program has its own set of specific requirements and mandatory paperwork. Guidelines can change and the number of patients accepted into PAPs can be limited. For eligibility guidelines and application information for over 200 PAPs, FreeMedPrograms.com is a great resource.

Knowing that over 40 million Americans are uninsured or under insured, it may raise the question “why aren’t more people enrolled in patient assistance programs?” There are a couple of possible reasons. One potential reason could be that the vast majority of potential enrollees do not know that Patient assistance programs exist. Another potential reason could be that many patients find the applications and enrollment paperwork tedious and potentially confusing- especially for those needing to apply for multiple medications. Although it is possible to navigate the paperwork and apply for patient assistance on your own, many people benefit from Patient Assistance Administration and Advocacy services. Patient Assistance Administration and Advocacy services specialize in getting qualified people enrolled in patient assistance programs. Once a patient is enrolled, advocacy services will maintain patients’ enrollment, complete any additional paperwork necessary, coordinate the delivery of free medication, and process refill requests.

The biggest benefits to using a Patient Assistance Admin and Advocacy Service are the following:

1. All paperwork including enrollment forms, prescriptions, records etc are completed correctly on your behalf.

2. Through relationships with the various PAPs, advocates make sure that all applications are not lost in the shuffle.

3. You get a dedicated patient advocate to answer any and all questions.

4. Although this is a paid service, savings is guaranteed to be greater than any expenses.

Want to see if you or someone in your household qualifies for patient assistance?

Complete the short form here.

A patient assistance advocate will review your information and contact you to discuss your eligibility.

To date, Patient Assistance Admin and Advocacy services have enrolled thousands of people in PAPs.

We hope that you have found this information to be both informative and valuable. As stated earlier, we are truly dedicated to helping people find ways to save money on their prescription medication.

Do You Suffer From Depression?

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012
Affected by Depression?

Feeling Depressed?

Depression is one of the most common health conditions in the world. In the U.S. alone, depression affects approximately 19 million people. Depression is a chronic condition that affects both the mind and body. Without long term treatment, depression can have major effects on a person’s life.

There are three main types of depression: major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and dysthymia. Major depressive disorder can interfere with every aspect of daily life including eating, sleeping, work and enjoying activities. Bipolar disorder is marked by extreme highs and extreme lows with periods of normal moods mixed in. Dysthymia is the least severe form of depression. It doesn’t seriously interfere with everyday life, but it can keep someone from feeling happy or performing at their peak.

Although the exact cause of depression is unknown, many people believe that it is due to either a chemical reaction in the brain, genetics, or a person’s environment. Although it is true that depression can run in families, there are many other contributing factors that can lead to depression. Other factors that can contribute to depression include the following:

  • A major life event such as moving, loss of job, retirement or divorce
  • A death of a loved one
  • People who have had a serious medical illness
  • People who have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused
  • Substance abusers
  • Certain medications

 

Depression symptoms can vary from person to person. Many people will experience very severe depression symptoms while others just feel miserable and don’t know why. Common symptoms that are associated with depression include sadness, hopelessness, insomnia, inability to do normal every day activities, feeling weak, difficulty concentrating, lack of sex drive, excessive weight gain, excessive weight loss and suicidal thoughts.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and you think you may be depressed, you should see a doctor. Your doctor may recommend therapy, prescribe an anti-depressant medication, or a combination of both. There are many different types of anti-depressant medications available to treat depression. Your doctor will determine which one would be the best for you based upon other medications that you may be taking, severity of your depression, and your family history of depression. Some of the most common anti-depressants are SSRIs, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. These anti-depressants include Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Celexa and Lexapro. SSRIs are prescribed most often because they are usually well tolerated and have minimal side effects. If your depression is severe, your doctor may also want to use psychotherapy in addition to anti-depressant medications.

With the right treatments, your depression symptoms can greatly improve. Many patients begin to feel like themselves again in as little as 4-6 weeks. It is important to remember that it is perfectly normal to feel sad or unhappy at times. However, if these feelings are lasting for weeks or months and interfere with work, relationships, and life, it’s time to seek help. You can be happy and start to feel more like yourself again.

Brace Yourself for the 2012 Allergy Season

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

 

Allergy Season

2012 Allergy Season

Though many people who live in cold weather climates may have welcomed the unseasonably warm winter, it was not without any strings attached. It appears as if the mild winter has brought on allergy season sooner that normal. And if that’s not bad enough, the 2012 allergy season is expected to be the worst that we’ve seen in the past 10 years.

For starters, the mild winter has caused allergy season to start earlier. Think that your stuffy nose, congestion and watery eyes are from a cold or flu? Think again- it may very well be the first signs of allergy season. A mild winter can cause trees to produce more pollen and that pollen seems to be getting more potent. A mild winter in combination with rain, will make for a bad allergy season.

It’s not just the pollen sufferers that will be affected this allergy season; mold will also make an appearance. The warmer than usual winter, coupled with changing weather patterns, will bring higher than normal mold levels across the country.

So if you are someone who has pollen or mold allergies, see your allergist early. People who do not seek treatment for allergies put themselves at greater risk for developing asthma and other respiratory problems. There is no need to suffer through allergy season; see your allergist and take your medication. Additionally, if you can, keep your windows closed and run your air conditioning. Don’t forget to also clean you’re A/C filters often.

Taking allergy medication? We may be able to help reduce your out of pocket costs on OTC and prescription allergy medications. Medicationcoupons.com offers consumers 2 ways to save money on their medications- with medication coupons & a free discount drug card. Below you will find specific drug coupons for various allergy medications. If you do not see your medication listed, feel free to download our free discount drug card that can be used to reduce your out of pocket expenses on prescription medications not covered by insurance.
