NeedyMeds is a fantastic resource for helping people get the medicine and medical care they need. Not only does NeedyMeds offer an extensive list of medications that are offered at free or lower cost for those in need, but there are also copay cards and savings that are not income based. How many of us had had a medical or dental issue and not had insurance? NeedyMeds offers a comprehensive list of clinics that can help you. Just put your zip code in and it will show you local facilities. My son needed one when he was in college. It was extremely helpful. NeedyMeds provides a tremendous service to the community! Unfortunately, so many see the name “NeedyMeds” and think that this is all income based. Definitely worth checking out your medications and see if you a copay card will help you! Instead of paying $50, I paid $5!
As a Medicare counselor, I am well aware of how often, even with a Part D prescription drug plan, medication deductibles and co-pays can make accessing needed medications out of reach for some people. Needymeds is a wonderful, alternative for patients to access their needed medications in a more affordable way.
This is the most amazing organization! You can search their website by diagnosis or medication and find all kinds of help, financial assistance, prescription assistance programs, even scholarships and transportation. The help that they provide is amazing.
NeedyMeds is an incredible tool available to all patients who need help and assistance with their prescription medication and OTC meds. With Needymeds Drug Discount Card, you can save up to 80% off the cash price of your prescriptions, OTC medications and pet prescriptions purchases. NeedyMeds doesnt only offer drug discount cards, but you can also Stay up-to-date on clinical trials, treatment options and research findings about your medical condition with Medivizor. Get information relevant to your diagnosis delivered right to your inbox. Awesome health services.
This is a wonderful resource for patients and healthcare providers alike. Not only does it provide information from a cost savings perspective but its educational and provides assistance in all areas (transportation, clinic access and scholarships). Easy to navigate and a great initiative!
Needymeds not only provides patients struggling to pay for their medications with options but also provides them with information about services available to them at lower costs.
I personally have not used Needy Meds. I imagine that it would work like any other discount card for medications and equipment. It will only pay for a portion of the costs (UP TO a certain number). That does not mean you will receive the max discount available. This is a very important piece of information to understand. The knowledge of other available programs to help with copays and medical/dental/vision needs is quite interesting.
As someone who works with patients as a pharmacy intern, I see firsthand the challenge some patients face when it comes to affording their medications. NeedyMeds offers a brilliant way for patients to save money and afford the prescriptions they need.
As a pharmacy student who just got introduced to NeedyMeds, I find it to be an excellent tool to further enhance patients' care. NeedyMeds provides outstanding resources aim at completing health management of patients' diseases, in order to achieve great results. The website is very user friendly and effective. NeedyMeds fills the missing gap in delivering health care to patients --the continuous and patient centered care. NeedyMeds is also a great tool to add to any physician's practice to enhance their patient care and achieve improved therapy adherence.
NeedyMeds provides an extremely helpful resource for saving our patients money - something everyone can benefit from!
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.
As a pharmacy student, I have encountered many people who need help with their prescription medications, especially patients who do not have health insurance or whose medications are not covered under their plan. Thanks to the RXVIP concierge, I use NeedyMeds as a backbone resource for delivering care, compassion, and empathy for our patients. I make sure that we put our patients first and provide the best care they need. Thanks to NeedyMeds, I can provide education and help patients with their healthcare.
NeedyMeds is an amazing nonprofit that aims to help patients get medicine and medical care that are necessary and tailored to that patient. It is a seem-less process that aims to improve patient care.
As an educator of students in the pharmacy profession, we use NeedyMeds as a backbone resource for our delivery of care, compassion and empathy for our patients. The extensive resource library and the ongoing support is outstanding and sets the bar for other affiliate partners we have to reach. The people we work with are all accessible and available to be there whenever we need them. NeedyMeds helps us establish our culture of always putting the patient first.
My experience with NeedyMeds has always been above the bar when it comes to their commitment to the patients we serve. Carla has been our angle and Richard is always there to bring our vision to reality. For seven years they have been there for me and our team so we look forward to the next decade at least
of care, compassion and empathy thorough this great partnership
Kind of hard to find what I am looking for . I was searching for COVID 19 premium assistance for Cobra insurance
Our daughter's been trying to locate a local location to safely dispose of her sharps containers that don't change a fee, but had no luck. Pharmacies and other common sense locations don't accept them. I did more research and reached out via email and Leah promptly provided the information we needed...for us, it's as easy as duct taping lids closed, properly marking the containers "do not recycle" and placing them in our trash recepticals for pickup. Couldn't have been easier! Thank you, Leah...it will be great to get all of the containers out of our home!!!
I am a Patient Advocate and Navigator. The Needy Meds organization provides and service of GREAT value to my clients! I always make sure that they are very aware of and comfortable using the Needy Meds Website.....as it offers a wealth of information to them. So many times I have had clients and even personal friends say they had no idea all of these services were available.
Also, the Webinars that Needy Meds offers are always of the highest quality and so much information can be gained from them!
Thanks, to Needy Meds for all of the information that they offer us!
I am Rabble Health's Chief of Staff, and NeedyMeds has been a fantastic partner to work with. I first reached out to Dr. Sagall in either late 2020 or early 2021 to see if they would want to work with a digital health start-up. From the beginning, they have welcomed us as a partner with open arms, and the NeedyMeds team has been wonderful to work with. Dr. Sagall, Ms. Hoffman and everybody else has been very kind and helpful. It is because of NeedyMeds that we have the myRabble NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card. NeedyMeds is a great organization working to improve the lives of patients everywhere.
NeedyMeds provides an excellent resource for individuals, employers, brokers, and consultants seeking information on how to identify and utilize services to access care in the most cost-effective manner. There are significant healthcare cost-savings opportunities in the market for medications and other services and NeedyMeds consolidates that information into a single, easy-to-use site.
Needy Meds is an outstanding example of the generous and dedicated non-profits who are dedicated to serving the needs of those persons living with cancer.
Needy Meds understands the complexities of accessing critical medications at reasonable costs and has streamlined the process to apply for needed meds.
Further, Needy Meds has presented much needed and excellent webinars to educate the cancer community about issues of great importance. The seminars serve to strengthen the medical as well as emotional needs of the cancer patients and deepen the healing process.
Needymeds creates much needed resources for patients to access critical information to help them receive financial assurance advocate for themselves, and understand avenues of access.
I can't say enough positive things about NeedyMeds.
Their willingness to help anyone that calls and constantly searching for new programs is great! I wish that more people were aware of NeedyMeds and their services because they are truthful and helpful, not two things a lot of organizations have anymore.
We have been working with NeedyMeds for awhile now and have received excellent, up to date information from them to help our clients with medication access. We continously use their abundance of resources and sign up for their webinars. Thank you for always being helpful.
I work with uninsured, low income people who need medications for many different kinds of medical issues. Needy meds is always a valuable tool in finding assistance for them.
I am always looking for webinars that will help me assist my patients with accessing their medications. I find the webinars that NeedyMeds offers are always informative and useful in my work.
I am very thankful for all that Needy Meds does to assist the consumer and educate the others who assist people in need!
Pam Taylor, Pharmacy Coordinator
With the chaos just trying to survive in today's insane, seemingly "Cut-throat" society we all try to co-exist. I wish I had the impactful words to express how refreshing it was to come accross NeedyMeds and the plethora of different options they are able TO OFFER THE PUBLIC at either a deep discount or FOR FREE!!! Myself I needed help with my teeth, through a near fatal motorcycle accident a few years ago, I lost 7 plus 1 chipped. So basically I walk around looking like a hockey player, hehehe. My self confidence has been abused for many years and I know that is one of my 1st steps to me overcoming this socially crippling hurdle. NeedyMeds THE 1st Stop, my 1st SOURCE to fix what is ailing me physically with what is ailing you but as well as emotionally and can assist with Counselling to help talk through any issues you need assistance with. THIS GROUP IS A GODSEND!!!!
This charity deserves far more than 5 stars. NeedyMeds provides such a COMPREHENSIVE guide for finding ways to make prescription medications more affordable. They also go BEYOND this to provide resources for finding help covering medical transportation expenses, medical equipment expenses, and even low-cost/sliding scale clinics!!
This is a total GOLDMINE!
In need of keppra, 1000 MG tablets. Can't afford the almost $500 a month price.
Please visit https://www.needymeds.org/brand-drug/DrugSearch/keppra. You can also call our toll-free helpline at (800) 503-6897.
This is the most amazing nonprofit. They help people find the drugs they need at the best possible price, using so many wonderful resources. They also provide searches by medical condition for resources and grants. In addition, they have webinars on various health and medical topics. They also have an amazing alternative to Gofundme where they make sure the contributions go to the medical bills and even negotiate down the medical bills. The customer service is so helpful and professional. The wonderful work done by this organization is enough to restore faith in humanity!
I am a Medicare counselor and assist beneficiaries in finding the best Part D, prescription coverage plan that works with their pharmacy, However, sometimes, even with the most affordable plan, the co-pays can be quite high. So I assist them in reviewing the patient assistant programs available through needymeds.org. These programs have been invaluable to many folks whose budgets would be strained to the max without them or they simply would not be able to take their much needed prescriptions!
NeedyMeds has helped hundred of my consumers to get free prescription assistance or reduced prescription prices using the NeedyMeds discount card.
NeedyMeds is helping our Elderly and People with disabilities to get more affortable prescriptions. Needymeds has helped many of my client thought the website to find assistance with manufactures. our clients are also using their discount card to get more economical prices on prescriptions.
My pharmacist told me my new drug prescription would cost $132 for a one month supply. When I showed my NeedyMeds drug discount card, they looked it up right away and determined the medicine would only cost $60, a monthly savings of $72! It was quick and easy with the NeedyMeds card.
NeedyMeds is a great help to me. Now ,i know how to dispose my used lancets the right way.
Thank you so much Leah for answering my question right away.
My husband is a diabetic and trying to navigate his prescription costs was frustrating. I was able to use Needymeds to find programs to help greatly reduce the amount that we pay for the same prescriptions now. without the information found on the Needymeds website I would have never known about the programs that are available to consumers.
I was without insurance, and facing a high cost for my medication. The NeedyMeds drug discount card saved me 70% of the cost at my local pharmacy. Thank you!
I was in a situation where getting my continuous glucose monitor was proving to be extremely difficult and expensive. Needymeds helped me and made the whole process quick and easy. I've been getting my CGM for months now, delivered to my door, no issues. They made a huge difference.
SafeNeedlesDisposal.org led me to this AWESOME website about safe needle disposal. It connected me with various resources for me to investigate and learn more about safe needle disposal in my area since moving from Cambridge to Arlington. I learned that my new city has a safe needle disposal program.
I even found out that my pharmaceutical company provided FREE sharps containers. I ordered them and they arrived in the mail. Been a wonderful experience with NeedyMeds and their sister programs. Keep up the great work!
Our members have turned to NeedyMeds over & over again, as they are a trusted & valuable resource for finding help with medication needs. They are able to help many of our members who otherwise would not have a resource. Just last week, I had a member report that they had found a program through NeedyMeds & could not be happier with the compassion & help. Keep up the great work!
Co-Founder & Patient Advocate
The MAGIC Foundation
I have had the opportunity to work with Carla as a volunteer, and she is a great leader by keeping me informed with everything NeedyMeds is doing to support the community.
Whenever I run low on materials, with a simple email to Carla, I will have materials again.
I look forward to more opportunities to raise awareness of what NeedyMeds is doing in the community.
Flyers of two events where I told people about NeedyMeds!
It has been a pleasure working with NeedyMeds. The staff are professional, very knowledgeable and helpful.
The Epilepsy Association serves an average of 600 uninsured/economically disadvantaged patients a month and having a resource like NeedyMeds to find medications, services, etc. for them and for my staff is invaluable!
Great people - Great Program.
The workers are extremely rude and talk down to you like you are stupid. I'm disabled from brain cancer treatment and two different workers I spoke with on the phone were practically yelling at me. Some serious management problems going on here.
NeedyMeds, is a wonderful national nonprofit that provides a comprehensive and reliable source of information on assistance programs available for people having difficulties paying for their medications or healthcare expenses. What makes NeedyMeds unique is that they maintain the largest database for these types of programs and provide their services free and anonymously. The NeedyMeds staff and leadership are compassionate about the work they do and help patients who often have inadequate health insurance coverage or are struggling because the cost burden is overwhelming for the medicines they and their families need. Every week, NeedyMeds helps thousands of patients and their caregivers find these programs and even help them through the enrollment process. They achieve this through their helpline 800-503-6897 and their website www.NeedyMeds.org.
As Director of Special Projects for the BeMedWise Program at NeedyMeds (BeMedWise.org), we are helping consumers be more informed about their healthcare by promoting the safe use of medicines through trusted communication for better health.
As a medical home health social worker I am frequently tasked with finding solutions to help our patients afford their medication. In a state without Medicaid expansion and with more and more social programs being de-funded, it is a true blessing to have Needy Meds as a resource. Without the coordinated efforts of this agency many of my patients would have to forego taking their medications and risk of re-hospitalization and continued decline in their health.
I was introduced to NeedyMeds shortly after it was organized. As then the Executive Director of a national nonprofit working to stimulate and promote safe and appropriate use of medication, the ability to refer patients, healthcare providers and caregivers to NeedyMeds for support and assistance with accessing necessary medications helped fill a tremendous void. NeedyMeds' approach to fulfilling its mission is one of high-quality expertise, professionalism and compassion. Their staff is well-trained and prepared to provide services related to accessing high-cost / high-need medicines, as well as providing educational resources through the BeMedWise Program @ NeedyMeds to better equip and enable patients and caregivers to safely use / administer, store and dispose of unused medicines.
NeedyMeds also maintains a database of free- and low-cost medical clinics, also a tremendous resource to help consumers in need of access to medical care.
The commitment of NeedyMeds is reflected in the fact that its founder and president is a physician, who has spent his medical career working on behalf of all patients to ensure access to otherwise unattainable medications.
NeedyMeds is a wonderful organization! I've worked with patients who do not have insurance and cannot afford their medication. When a pharmacy uses a patient's NeedyMeds card, it can help that patient get the medication they need. NeedyMeds makes it easy for patients to access discounts on their prescriptions at their local pharmacy. In addition to their free discount cards, the NeedyMeds website has information on many other patient assistance programs and health topics. NeedyMeds has a long history of helping people and it's clear that's their goal!
I have worked with Dr. Rich Sagall and NeedyMeds for more than 10 years. His genuine concern for the patients he and his organization serves is evident in all their interactions. NeedyMeds provides resources to patients in need of medical services and pharmacy prescription discounts. NeedyMeds has a heart for the uninsured and under insured population and truly makes a difference in people's lives. It is a pleasure to partner with this organization.
NeedyMeds is a high-quality, critically needed resource for people who can’t afford their prescription meds. It provides access to patient assistance programs that provide free or low-cost drugs for illnesses like diabetes, asthma, cancer, high blood pressure, and depression.
Information about program eligibility and benefits is available online and over the phone anywhere in the US. NeedyMeds assistance and information is always free and anonymous – no registration, no red tape.
I had been renting a nebulizer through Medicare, to deal with my asthma. I decided that I would like to own one, rather than continue to rent one. When I contacted NeedyMeds to see if I could use their discount card to purchase a nebulizer, I learned that nebulizers were not something that the company supported. Within a week of my inquiry, NeedyMeds changed its policy, and I was able to purchase my own nebulizer with the NeedyMeds discount. Thank you, NeedyMeds, for being so responsive!
NeedyMeds is my go-to organization for assisting my clients with affordable medication access. I find this is a great resource for finding the many programs available to help with the high cost of many medications for those in need. NeedyMeds has provided comfort and easy access to medications for those who could not purchase particular medications because of the high out-of-pocket costs of these medications. I would highly recommend NeedyMeds based on my outcome with assisting my community members.
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 a patient advocate and have used this site for many years. This site has helped countless numbers of patients that I have worked with get the medication they need. It is a great resource! Thank you Needy Meds!
I have used your site for both of my jobs in medical offices. I have shared your link with many people, and utilized it many times myself. I also let all of my doctor offices know, as well as the health department and community clinic.
Your site is a blessing to so many!! Keep up the great work!!
I have been using NeedyMeds since it first came out. I work in outpatient mental health in an area that was hit hard by the recession. I had been aware of some of the programs available before, however, this site has made it so much easier to navigate.
I recommend this site to everyone I know, clients, friends, family. Your site has helped save hundreds of thousands of dollars for so many people.
Personal story: An online friend of mine emailed me and asked me if I would possibly be able to help her. Her mother had been diagnosed with lung cancer, and the medication to help her prolong her life with quality was almost $20,000 a month. She had part of the name of the pharmaceutical company, and with the help of NeedyMeds, I was able to give her the contact information. Her mom was able to enjoy another year of life, holidays, etc.
Thank you so much.
Dear Roxanne, Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your friend's story. It means a lot to us that NeedyMeds was able to help in such a difficult situation. And we appreciate how you have shared NeedyMeds with others. If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our website or the information on it, please do let us know. Best wishes, Laurie-Marie Pisciotta Outreach & Education Coordinator email@example.com
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.
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.
great information for patient assistance programs to offer our patients.
Thank You keep up the good work...
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
