Pharmaceutical Reimbursement Assistance Programs

Authors: Staff of the Special Committee on Aging
October, 1994
Prepared by the Staff of the Special Committee on Aging, United States Senate, Senator David Pryor, Chairman

The following drug companies have programs that will allow your patients to receive free prescription drugs.

Each drug company offers about the same program. Some are a little different. What it amounts to is either you, or the patient call the representative I have listed and request information on how to get signed up for their Indigent Patient Program. The drug company will then send either you or the patient the forms to fill out.

There are maybe 10 questions on each form. It is very simple. You send the form back with a prescription for the drugs, in the name of the patient, and they mail you back a three month supply. Just pick up the phone and call the patient to come pick them up at your office.
