Financial

Finances impact every part of our lives. As we age, finances can be strained by a fixed income, familial obligations, changes in the economy, and more. Resources, both public and private, in the community can help you to navigate your personal financial situations.

Medication Financial Assistance

Many pharmaceutical companies offer assistance programs that provide medications at reduced or no cost to patients in financial need. There are also charitable organizations and foundations that provide assistance to patients who need financial help to obtain prescription medications or treatment. Financial help is not available for all medications, conditions, or treatments. Most programs are limited to helping pay for specific drugs that treat specific medical conditions and will not help with medications that treat side effects such as nausea. Most listed programs are online databases where you can search by drug name, pharmaceutical company, or diagnosis. You can also search by prescription discount cards, manufacturer drug coupons, and other sources of help.
