NeedyMeds is a clearinghouse for med-assistance programs. Not all meds are included so it is always good to call the pharmaceutical companies if you can't find yours.

 

Hope this helps.

For Lilly Cares and Novo Nordisk it requires some sort of consistent healthcare provider, which I lack and can't afford. Proof of income furthermore essentially imposes a year-long waiting period vastly in excess of the time to ketoacidosis.

 

I've only ever been able to cry poverty in the ICU after ketoacidosis. Similar issues have prevented my ever using these programs my entire post-onset life.

Amlyn was taken over by Bristol Myers Squibb last year. The link is still forwarding for now but you may want to change it in case they decide it's been long enough. :)

Also remember if you are on Medicare Part D they will not accept you in these programs. I may have to drop my hubby's drug coverage so that the programs will accept him!

I don't think if you are in any type of Medicare they will accept you in these programs, not just Part D. I would be careful about cancelling his Part D. If you want to reinstate it in the future, you will be assessed a penalty for every month you went without it that gets added to your bill, forever.

jwags I am still doing research about this. They sure make it complicated!  I know about the penalty but his premium is pretty low right now so maybe that won't be a big factor. DH is also getting up there in age so he wouldn't have a larger premium for too long..lol...I've been calling him Old Fart for years and now he really is one.

 

 

 

 

I have found a foreign website that sells his most expensive prescription for 80$ a month, which we could swing..Now I need to see if it is legal etc.

Just FYI for Medicare gov program people My father is on Medicare so was always denied the savings card but now the patient assistance programs on these sites states if you are in the donut hole and make a certain amount can qualify and it's almost no cost. Which is a huge help!! My dad consistently gets into the donut hole in feb/March. Now if I can bet help with insurance and a decent paying job. Really sucks.
