I know how hard it is to pay for this med. So i found out that if you have a low income you can get it for free for a year. Procter & Gamble have this program or whatever you call it. You just call a number to get a app. and fill it out. you have to have your dr. help you because there are parts on it that they need to fill out. But let me tell you it has been the best thing about all this UC stuff. I dont know what i would have done if i had to keep paying for it. So here is the number.

1-800-830-9049 between 8:00am and 5:30pm central time, monday through friday.

I hope this helps

I am going to sign up after I pay my taxes if I am eligible. I already told my doctor about it and she said she would have no problem signing the papers for me. She knows how much I struggle without insurance. Hope you all have success with Asacol for a long period of time.

Does everyone that get free meds, have no insurance? I have insurance and it sucks. I still pay 367 dollars every 3 months. What do you think my chances are with getting these for free
Diagnosed July 2005 with Pancolitis

I am not sure if this is the same way you guys get yours, I go through ppa partnerships for perscription assistance are something along that line but if you have insurance I dont think you qualify. But I might be wrong so doesnt hurt to check.
