She Who Watches and Waits

Greetings All! Having recently found myself in the position of needing meds that I cannot at this time afford financially, nor afford physically to do without, I found this resource that I would like to share with those of you who may ike to have it. Plese feel free to share it with others. I feel this is a valuable resource.

Here's how it worked for me. My doctors office called the number listed for the manufacturer of the meds I needed. The company then requird the doctor to send in, on office stationery, a statement from the doctor stating that I needed the medicine, had no insurance or other means to pay for the meds, and also had the doctor include a perscription for the meds. The company then sent the doctors office a three month suupply of the meds for me. I picked the meds up from the doctors office. Took about two months to get the meds. But well worth the wait.

According to the person I spoke with at the drug manufacturing company, you may have you prescription refilled for as long as need be. I do not know if this is the pllicy for all the manufactures in the program, or only the policy of the one I used.

To have the prescription refilled, you must again have your doctor contact the manufacturer, and go thru the procedure once more.

Each company may have a littl different procedure

Here is an address to write to for a booklet with the same information listed, with a little more detail. This booklet is an excellent resource reference for support groups.
PHRMA Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America 1100 Fifteenth Street, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20005

I have found it to be of immense value. Hope this helps someone. Blessings - Selene
