I was unlucky enough to be unemployed, and uninsured while needing blood pressure and cholesterol medications.
My wife has Multiple Sclerosis, she also lost her main coverage when I became unemployed, although she has Medicare.
I am using a program called Together Rx Access and I could not believe it, but my costs for medication were actually lower, sometimes substantially lower, than my co-pays when I had insurance! My wife's medications were also lower! One caveat, not ALL medications are covered, but quite a few.
Also, for anyone who has a condition such as Multiple Sclerosis, or any other lifelong ailment, some medications are CRAZY expensive. Contact the manufacturer of the drug in question, and see if a program is available to help. My wife's interferon based injections cost $2000-$2300 MONTHLY, and through a program offered through the manufacturer we pay $50.00 per YEAR!
Good Luck & Good Health
Another Drug Card
I have had good success with a prescription discount card called RxDrugCard.
They have their drug prices posted on their website www.rxdrugcard.com so you can compare with what you pay now. Great customer service too.
I’d love to hear what you have to say in the comments.
