Maine's Hospital-Managed Prescription Assistance Programs
There are many options for free or low-cost prescription drugs.
These include brand name and generic patient assistance programs (PAPs), co-pay foundations, retail and mail-order pharmacy discounts, and a variety of state and federal programs.
Some programs are available to patients with Medicare or private insurance or to those with greater incomes but high medical expenses.
Hospital-managed prescription assistance programs evaluate each patient's circumstances, identify the best sources of help, and coordinator the access process for both patient and prescriber.
