Comprehensive Drug Assistance Programs List from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America: Many pharmaceutical companies, state programs and nonprofits have drug assistance programs (PAPs) that offer free or low-cost medicines if you don’t have insurance or are underinsured and can’t afford your medicine.

Programs and program benefits vary. Depending on your insurance and medicine, you may be eligible for help to reduce their medicine copay. You may qualify for free medicines if you do not have health insurance, do not have enough health insurance to cover your medicines or meet certain criteria.

Below is a list of several organizations and programs that may be able to offer financial assistance to help you cover the cost of your asthma medicines.

Walmart $4 Prescription List: RxHope is the only patient assistance Internet initiative financially supported by PhRMA (Pharmaceutical and Research Manufacturers of America) and participating pharmaceutical companies. RxHope began as a grassroots effort of the Patient Assistance Managers and Directors of the PhRMA-member companies and has grown into the leading Internet-based patient assistance and sampling web portal in the pharmaceutical industry. Each patient assistance request form has been custom-designed to the pharmaceutical company’s rules engine. RXHope removes the time and costs of these programs by web-enabling labor-intensive paperwork onto the physician’s computer.

Those third parties do not endorse the content or processes used on this website, including our information collection or data storage processes.
