Bureau of Prescription Health


The Medicine Program assists patients who cannot afford to pay for prescription medication. This program is used when a consumer is unable to pay for medications, pending Medicaid approval. There are also some pharmaceutical companies that offer free medications to low-income families. They require a doctor’s consent and proof of your financial status. Depending on what your insurance covers, you may be able to apply. A few companies allow family incomes as high as $40,000 annually (offset by expenses). For a listing of current pharmaceutical companies and the medications they offer visit www.nami.org

We're committed to helping people in need vindicate their rights under the law.
