I read your blog post of 12/27/10 and thought you and your readers might want to know about NeedyMeds and the help we can offer.
NeedyMeds is a national non-profit that has information on programs that help people who can't afford their medications and health care costs. We have data on over 4000 programs and over 11,000 free/low-cost/sliding-scale clinics. All our data is free, easy to access, and updated regularly. Our website is visited by 13,000-14,000 people most workdays.
We offer a free drug discount card that's accepted at nearly 60,000 pharmacies. Anyone can use the card regardless of income level, insurance status, age or residency. The card offers a discount ranging from nothing to 75% on prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs and medical supplies when written on a prescription form, and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy. The average savings is 50%. The card is free and there is no registration process or cost. The card can be downloaded from our website or obtained by sending us a self-address stamped envelope.
