Some pharmaceutical companies offer medication assistance programs to low-income individuals and families. These programs generally require a doctor's consent and proof of your financial status. They may also require that you have either no health insurance, or no prescription drug benefit  with your health insurance. Please use the contact information provided below for specific eligibility requirements and application information.

We will continue to update this list as often as possible. Please check back often.

Your Free Medicine


Last year, U.S. pharmaceutical companies gave away free prescription medicines to over 6 million Americans. Why would they do that? Because the federal government provides them with tax rebates as an incentive to do so.
