I have often posted the link to the Indigent Drug Program, http://www.top5plus5.com/Indigent%20Drug%20Programs.html, but just read of another plan--launched 4 years ago--that offers free or discounted drugs by 98 companies.  It is the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA.)  To find out if you qualify, go to http://www.access2wellness.com/a2w/patient-partnership.html.  The article states that "typically, a family of four earning about $40,000 is eligible."  At the web site, there are also some other assistance programs listed.

Note that these manufacturer-sponsored programs are generally not available to those with prescription drug coverage, though there are some exceptions.

my daughter used PPA till she got insurance. I also use a Walgreens plan for my drugs. My co pay was 15 per month but on their plan it 15 for 3 months..... they have a list of eligable drugs on the program so worth looking into

Sue, I have a Part D prescription plan, but Walgreen's gives me a 3-month supply for the price of one on all my prescriptions but one.  Walmart also has many prescription drugs for $4.  However, the drugs that people are usually concerned about are the expensive ones with no generic.  That's when the above linked programs really help.
