One of the best services that needy meds' offers is access to most pharmaceutical companies pharmacy assistance programs. These programs give people free medication if they meet eligibility guidelines. The income requirements are quite generous but generally you cannot have insurance coverage. When I worked in a community mental health center I helped people get name brand medication free. The medications are brand name, no generic medication programs. Your doctor has to sign the application and provide a prescription. I lost my insurance last year and recently got Synvisc, for my osteoarthritis, that would have cost 1188. 00 for free.
