Tks Rosie,
   Medications are so high!!! The Medicare Part D programs stink when you hit the big "gap" in coverage. I don't know how they expect someone on a limited income to pay 3600.00$ out of pocket..... nono .  Thank goodness, I have one doctor that will give me samples of a couple of my meds, when he has them.
   Tks for the info, sis! Take care.

Hi Rosie,

Thank you for the post. I know of another site too for people who are uninsured. I am not good at making the links on here but will post it.

I found this information in an old post:

The following links were supplied by Redrose. If you need assistance with purchasing prescription medicine, one of these links might be helpful.

Also do not be afraid to check the Salvation Army and local sources. Some churches and other organizations will often help with meds. Also some communities have special programs to get you prescription coverage. Never feel there is no hope unless you lack insurance and have a very high income. Even then there is usually help available. For those who don't know yet, humira and enbrel have programs to help pay for their injections. Also many drug companies have programs too! So if you take a lot of meds find out who makes them and see what programs they have- always look at brand name company though as generic companies usually do not have programs as generic is supposedly cheap.
