try needymeds.org if you need prescription help. I called the manufacturer for Lialda and they said they have special programs for people who have trouble paying for prescriptions. They referred me to that website as they have a number of medications that qualify for free or reduced meds. I just have to fill out a form and have my doctor sign off on it. Every 3 months I have to repeat the process but it will be worth it for the meds. I just started this process for the first time since hubby lost his job and with it insurance. I'll let you guys know how it works. I did see other UC meds on there besides Lialda. Check with each drug manufacturer ... you will be surprised by the number of option available.
 
i copied and pasted  it all. but who knows  it may be of help. i a plan on looking into it myslef. and will update ya'll
