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!

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.

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 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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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 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 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 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.

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!

As a nonprofit home health social work navigator, I have daily experience with patients who have faced a medical crisis and are unable to afford medications. Their illness has caused the loss of their employment and health insurance. Without an income they are unable to afford alternative health insurance. North Carolina chose not to expand the Medicaid program and this continues to leave patients without a means to obtain life sustaining medications. With Needy Meds patients are able to access prescription assistance programs, coupons and discounts which actually save their lives. I am so grateful for this avenue to assist a largely ignored demographic.

In June 2016 I suddenly found myself without health insurance for the first time in over 10 years. Thank goodness I learned about the NeedyMeds drug discount card shortly thereafter-- I've been receiving significant discounts on all five (5) of my monthly prescriptions ever since. I honestly don't know what I'd do without it. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the convenient drug pricing calculator-- it's easy to use, & in my experience has been about 99% accurate. THANKS AGAIN! :)

As a social worker in a community based mental health/indigent care clinic, I have used the services/support of NeedyMeds more than I can count. However, there are 2 specific occasions that stand out...
1). A dying woman with Bladder Cancer could not get health insurance because she and her husband had assets (an old motorhome). The couple decided to separate because without healthcare this woman would surely die. She was living in a TENT in someone's back yard (no room in the Inn and her cancer treatment required distance from others who might become pregnant) in the middle of a Michigan winter so as to be close to the hospital which agreed to provide cancer treatment. NeedyMeds aided this woman in getting her anti nausea medications. She was soooo grateful. This woman lived in a TENT in the middle of a freezing Michigan winter with cancer AND she was grateful! It was humbling.

2). In 2012 a young father of 4 was diagnosed with Stage 4, inoperable, brain cancer. He was given 2 months to live. He was started on oral chemo. They had no money to afford the medication. NeedyMeds provided the chemo at ZERO cost to the patient. I can tell you, it is 4.5 years later and this man is STILL alive. Without that chemo he would have surely died and his children would have grown up fatherless.

I am a huge fan of NeedyMeds and I promote all that they do and stand for all over my own fb page and with everyone I meet. The services they provide are truly exemplary!!!!

I have used NeedyMeds for 6 years now to help our uninsured patients get there meds through the savings programs, but never really used anything else on their sight. I had order the Discount Drug Savings Cards over a year ago but never used them until just recently. WOW what a savings these cards give!! I had a patient save almost a $100 on an antibiotic and ended up paying just $10. Then today my patient saved over $650 on her prescription and will only pay $33.66. I ordered more savings cards and will handing these out to our uninsured patient more often to help with all their scripts. Thank you NeedyMeds for making my job so much easier!!

Recently I helped a couple of people find help with their generic drugs through NeedyMeds. It went really well and they were both very happy with the results. I also called with a question and the person answering the phone was professional and helpful.

I use NeedyMeds daily as a clinical social worker working with seniors all over the country. Because of NeedyMeds I have been able to help numerous seniors afford their medications and get the assistance they need. Without NeedyMeds I'm positive they would not have had access to the critical medications they need but are unable to afford. NeedyMeds makes my job easier and more fulfilling and I am thankful I have a resource like this to utilize on a daily basis.

Needy Meds is the best! I work with many Medicare Members who are not able to afford their medications. Many take over 10 pills a day. It is just a pleasure to be able to offer many of them information that will ease their worries especially if they are on a fixed income. Needy Meds is a life saver, everyone should know about this site!
