GREAT new website from the CCFA and a program called NeedyMeds!!
The info bleow is C&Ped from an email I got from the CCFA:
CCFA has partnered with NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, to create a much-needed new resource page for those living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. This new resource makes it possible for patients to quickly locate medication cost assistance programs designed to help individuals facing financial or medical hardship. Visitors can also easily identify medications that can be requested through patient assistance programs, locate free clinics, and access other types of financial help such as special co-pay support.
Mods, can this be added to the UC resources sticky thread? And if any of the Crohn's mods see this, can you please add it to that page as well! This is awesome!
