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 found Needymeds several years ago and since then I have helped many people and family wiht resources available when they had no help related to their diagnosis to obtain assistance that they otherwise would have gone with out and suffered due to not having that help. I continue to work with disabled voluntarily besides seeking to continue to work in this field as so many people struggle daily in their lives. This is a fantastic program and has continued to grow with more desperately needed resources.
I have multiple health issues - some genetic, some due to accidents, abuse & others unknown, therefore requiring many doctors & medications, in order to function & have a semblance of a life. Requiring over a dozen medications a month, that retails over $3K a month OR with MediCare Part D premium of $108.00, plus $$450+ co-pays monthly on a SSDI - Disability income of $1,200, makes my health care nearly impossible to get, on top of paying rent, utilities, food & transport. Never mind having a social life or affording extra comforts! Oh, it also makes for many interesting Ramen meals, or live like me and eat one meal a day or every other day!
With the MediCare/MediCal system & the medical care becoming less affordable, and more of a luxury for those with money, it leaves the remaining 99% of us not being able to get Quality / Affordable health care! So, programs like NeedyMeds are a blessing! Medications are NOT cheap!
Thank goodness there are people who care enough to fund this non-profit program.
I just recently found all the impressive content that NeedyMeds web site offers. I live with a chronic disease and I know how difficult the healthcare system can be to navigate. The NeedyMeds web site offers valuable information and the format is user friendly. As soon as I reviewed the NeedyMed website immediately posted their beneficial information on my HypoGal Blog. A big Thank You to NeedyMed Organization.
