Every day more and more Americans are struggling to cover their healthcare costs, leading to difficult choices between paying for food, housing, or prescriptions. Uninsured or underinsured Americans, especially those living with chronic diagnoses such as diabetes, face the most difficulty, often looking at extremely high medical bills they must cover on their own. For those struggling with such costs, NeedyMeds is here to help by connecting people, free and anonymously, through a website and toll-free helpline (800-503-6897), to programs that will help them afford their medical expenses.
The most popular healthcare savings programs for those with diabetes are:
Prescription Assistance Programs that provide the most savings for brand name prescription medications.
The $4 Generic Discount Drug Program is a great resource for finding generic medications for a discounted price. You may even find your prescription at a price lower than your insurance company.
The Coupons & Rebates section will connect you to discounted over-the-counter drugs, prescriptions and medical supplies with a quick click of your mouse.
For help affording expenses related to diabetes, visit the Diagnosis Based Assistance database. Here you can find programs that will help you afford medical needs such as medical equipment, respite care, or living expenses while receiving treatment.
Oftentimes, getting to and from a doctor or specialized facility causes a financial burden. Look for a program that can help you afford your medically related transportation or travel expenses under the Medical Transportation section.
And the Government Programs section is another important destination to search for Government Funded healthcare programs – and other helpful resources – in your state.
Another popular way to save on your medications is with the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card that may offer a discount of up to 80% on medications, over-the-counter drugs and medical supplies written as a prescription. It can also provide a discount of up to 40% on medical equipment.
