If You Need Help With Medical Care Or Prescriptions Read This

If you are one of the many people who need help with your medications or healthcare, this is an article that may be able to help you or your family. When I worked at a family practice clinic my job was to fill out forms and help people find discounted or free medications. I found several good places to start.

My first and foremost favorite site is has many ways of listing its services. It is NeedyMeds. It is a site that categorizes health care and prescription help by generic medication, Brand names medication, disease and by state. It is a relatively easy site to maneuver through. If you don't have a website there is a phone number.

There is a new way to buy insurance. It is called Coverage For All. You put in your zip code and then answer some questions about your health and you will then receive many choices to pick from for your health situation. There is some general information about what Coverage For All is and who supports it. It is a good idea to visit the mission statement and the idea behind the insurance.

If you have a heart problem or some other disease which may have its own association, call the Heart Association for example. Or the Diabetes Foundation. Sometimes they can be very helpful as to where to go from here. It can't hurt to try.

There is also a Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF). They have a phone number you can call to find out what kind of help they can offer you. The phone number is: (800) 532-5274. They are very nice people to deal with. I have called them myself. To get help for my daughter. They also have an email address.

Whatever you do, do not, go without your medication or needed checkups. There are free clinics in most states that you can avail yourselves of. It is not good for you or your family if you get sick. There are places you can go for help. Your phone can be your best tool as well as the computer. If you don't have a computer go to your library and use theirs.

Your job is to stay well and keep your family well. If there are resources, use them. That is why they are there.Everyone needs help once in a while. Don't let it get you down if this is one of those times for you. Your physical and mental well being is the most important tool in your financial recovery.

I hope that you can find the help you need so you can again be the person you want to be.
