Below is a website that offers help for those who need help paying for medicines, especially those without insurance. I haven't used them but it looks like they offer a lot of help. If you have good luck with them, please let us know how your experience went.

This site has been approved by our admin. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks Chutz for sharing that information. I have found so often that while reading posts or on chat, that there are so many people in this boat. I never know what to say to them. This is wonderful information for people to have. Some drugs are so costly, and sometimes even the cheaper ones can really add to a families stress, or to the stress of a young person. Thank you for sharing hope.

In Canada, all of our medical appointments are paid for by the government. There has been talk of a fee, yearly, that would come right off your salary, but being on disability I have not heard anymore about it.

Most good companies offer insurance plans for drugs, glasses and dental care. However, many companies do not have this, and often students do not have it.

Most doctors seem to be able to get a supply of some samples. They usually reserve these for people without medical insurance.

I do not know if we have a similar site for Canadians, but sure hope there is one.

If Canadians are on welfare, type of thing, I believe some of their meds are covered, but they do not necessarily cover everything. Most seniors also have free coverage for medication. Again there are limitations. My information is based on when my dad was living, a few years ago now, and when I was teaching and some families were on welfare. However, things could be different now.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks.
You are a wonderful person. Thanks for helping me the other night when I was feeling low and confused.
I sincerely appreciate your help.
