Review for NeedyMeds, Gloucester, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
