yeah  am so happy today because I received one month supply of Cellcept for free from a drug company. 
I called Roche and registered, after, I think, about two weeks, they called me back that I am qualified to apply.  Then they mailed me an application form.  I mailed back, and in less than a week, I got a month supply.  This is fast.  yeah

wow that's wonderful! I heard there were programs like that but never knew anyone that got help. That was pretty fast. I get most of my meds free through the V.A.. in the meds by mail program. You have to get at least a 3 month perscription so it doesn't help if I need antibiotics and my doctor won't do the level 2 or3 drugs what ever that is like xanax or vicodin. but all the rest is covered. I couldn't make it without it.

Good for you!
God Bless

I have tried to use Sandofi (Plaquenil's mfg) for Plaquenil becuase it is so expensive and I can't take the generic (allergic), but I don't qualify since we make a little over the level for a household of 3 and also we do have health insurance and RX insurance - even though the RX part is crappy - great for generics- which most of them I am allergic to the common fillers, I still pay a pretty penny for it (over $300 for 3 months worth) I can barely pay for it, I don't know how I will pay for it next time.  sigh...
But I am so glad that someone can make use of their programs, they are really nice if you need help and can qualify!  I hope that this can help some others also!
