With the challenges all of us have in the changing landscape of health care industry, it is refreshing to find an organization with one single purpose…..helping patients. As a network of RXVIP Concierge Pharmacists, we recognize the incredible resources that NeedyMeds provides us as professionals who are advocates in patient care. We have researched many other "savings solutions" but without question, the powerful cost savings suite of services from NeedyMeds are unmatched. Every interaction with support people within NeedyMeds has resulted in meaningful interventions with our patients who we work with, right in the physicians offices. Our RXVIP pharmacists working with physicians have been able to seamlessly integrate the NeedyMeds platform into our collaborative practice. With their help, we can provide the resources to our patients to deliver measurable results and better patient outcomes. We look forward to expanding our reach in chronic care management with the help of NeedyMeds who assist patients afford their medications.
First found out about needymeds when a prescription my rhuematologist wrote for me had a price tag on it that was more than half my monthly income. My pharmacist suggested I look there to see if I could find a coupon. I found a patient assistance program and within a week I was receiving the script in my mailbox at no cost to me. Later when I needed to go on biologic for my rheumatoid arthritis, I was prescribed Enbrel. The cost was about $500. a week, and well beyond what i could afford. Again needymeds helped me find a way to get the medicine I needed. This time with a co-pay card that paid what my insurance did not. Then the Enbrel stopped working and I switched to Humira which would have been 10x as costly. Again needymeds helped me find a way to afford it. I have also used their savings card which is free to print out on numerous other prescriptions, and even some over the counter things and stuff like canes that insurance doesn't cover. They have also helped me with finding low cost / sliding scale dental care in my area. Whenever a friend or loved one has a medical need I send them to needymeds. Being sick is hard enough without having to worry over your budget to get your prescriptions. If there were 100 stars available I would award them 110!
Concern, Commitment, Compassion and Care
NeedyMeds has been serving the community for over a decade, and this organization begins anew everyday knowing the support it provides to communities is needed and their work is good.
As a board member, I enjoy the times when I visit the office to meet the staff and volunteers. One volunteer, gave me the sweetest answer when asked, ‘What does NeedyMeds mean to you?’. The volunteer answered, ‘We serve a large number of people who need help. There are many other agencies out there, but the services we offer are different and needed by many patients. We do what we do with the resources we have very well.’
As a provider of multiple resources, NeedyMeds has the vision to continue to meet participants where they are on their medical journey by expanding and adding programs and services.
I am happy to represent an organization that is Making a Difference!
I needed a medication because my insurance didn't cover it, and I got the telephone number for the patient assistant program. The paper work that they sent me was overwhelming. I got the number for CHASE from the Senior Center. I called and set up an appointment with Mara. She helped me get through the application and organize all the papers I needed. She was kind , patient , very respectful and successful in doing my difficult application.I was so grateful to be connected with this program. I don't like asking for help but Mara made it easy.
I joined the NeedyMeds Board because I saw it as an amazing resource to enable people to get crucial medications that they could not otherwise afford. At the time I joined the Board, I worked with many advocates who helped low and moderate income people who could not afford crucial medications because of the cost. NeedyMeds was often the first and best place advocates went to find help for their clients.
As a Board member, I continue to be impressed by the extremely dedicated staff and leaders of this small, efficient non-profit and by the help and educational materials they provide to people across the country.
NeedyMeds is one of the most effective, trusted and far-reaching patient assistance programs in the country. It offers information and sometimes resources that affects a person's health, well-being and bottom line. Great job, NeedyMeds!
NeedyMeds is an organization that has a heart to serve those that are often neglected and left behind. The information and assistance that his organization provides to the public changes people's lives. I can think of no other company that shares this volume of meaningful health information tailored to meet the needs of disenfranchised populations of people.
As a healthcare provider this is a wonderful resource for patients to save money and be able to afford healthcare costs. I have worked in pharmacies in the past and always got questions regarding discount programs. I never knew of a program, but now I do thanks to needy meds. It is great because it offers rebates, allows people to qualify for free medication, and helps with copays.Additionally needy meds has many useful resources such as programs and free clinics. A feature that I particularly like is that you can use the discount card to purchase pet medications,, as a dog owner I appreciate that. Working in pharmacy I will recommend this program to as many people as possible. This is a wonderful example of how we as country can help lower health care costs.
Very pleased with the information provided at this webinar. NeedyMeds has been my number one go-to for assisting clients with medication costs. I can certainly contribute a wealth of information to members within and outside of our communities because of the great work you do! Thank you very much!
I am advocate for people with disabilities and the elderly. Needymeds is a valuable resource to help many to get free medications and other health care assistance as well discount cards.
Needy Meds has been an enormous help in the communities. The informative platform has been widely appreciated and recognized. I will continue to be an advocate for NeedyMeds
Dana and Team are very helpful and thorough in navigating and assisting with my medical/financial needs.
Thank you again!
I have volunteered with NeedyMeds for seven years. I have seen it grow from a small organization with three employees, housed in a small basement office, to a successful, nationally recognized organization with 30 employees. It has been recognized three times as one of the best non profits to work at for it's size. The employees are dedicated, enthused, and empowered. It provides an ever-increasing list of ways for people to save on their health care costs, and provides information not available anywhere else. All the information is free. It's a great place to work at or volunteer, and saves millions of dollars for people needing health care.
NeedyMeds is an excellent nonprofit -- it is THE place to turn when patients and providers have questions about patient assistance and available resources. Their database is broad and kept current, and their customer-service is terrific. They truly care about the patients they serve.
I work as a advocate for people with disabilities and needymeds has helped a lot of my consumers with prescriptions assistance, saving money in prescription with the discount card.
As a NeedyMeds Ambassador, I've used my knowledge about medication savings to empower people to get the medications they need. Knowing that people are not suffering because of high medication costs, no insurance/low insurance makes me feel great about being a volunteer for NeedyMeds! I always feel welcome when talking to the people who work at NeedyMeds and I know that I am getting the most up to date information when I look at their website: needymeds.org. Anyone, no matter who they are, can get that discount card which provides up to 80% off of the regular prices. People who I've told about NeedyMeds are amazed when they walk out of the pharmacy with their medications at low costs. NeedyMeds is truly a great nonprofit organization!
As a volunteer for Needymeds I have only the highest respect and admiration for their wonderful work.
Just yesterday I received a call from the one of the best hospitals in the country looking for assistance with a very expensive Medicine for one of their uninsured patients. I found a resource within minutes on Needymeds which will hopefully assist them.
Keep up your amazing work!
I've worked with NeedyMeds (as a partner) for a number of years -- and throughout the years have been pleased with the wealth of information available on their website for families in need of information on how to lower their medical costs. There are many cases where their are really very few options available to people struggling to afford their healthcare -- when those situations occur, NeedyMeds offers solutions.
As a dialysis nurse, I routinely refer my patients to this resource! It is amazing and I really appreciate the customer service number to call. Many of my patients are elderly and are not computer savvy, so the ability to call and actually speak to a human being is so valuable! What a great non for profit with a genuine heart to help those who need their help! Thank you Needy Meds!
I am so thankful for Needy Meds and their informative website. They have assisted me in helping numerous patients of mine obtain their medication. It has great programs that are willing to help almost immediately. Their webinars are also great opportunities to obtain follow ups on insurance or medical conditions. I am always learning something new via Needy Meds! I would most definitely recommend Needy Meds for medication assistance!
