What is a patient assistant program?
Patient Assistant Programs (PAP) are programs offered by Pharmaceutical companies to consumers who can't afford to pay for their prescription medication. These programs are available for the uninsured and underinsured consumer. If accepted, consumers can receive their prescription meds for free or at a discounted cost.
Am I guaranteed to receive my meds for free?
No you are not. There are eligibility requirements that must be met before you can be accepted. However, each program has their own eligibility criteria.
Where do I get my FreeMedPrograms.com application?
You will not be receiving a FreeMedPrograms.com application. Each different PAP has its own application. Once you have registered for FREE, you will have the ability to look up and locate the program associated with your medication and contact the program directly to get your application.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Eligibility requirements do vary from program by program. However, most programs do require that the patient or the patient's family has an income under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, cannot have prescription coverage and must be a U.S. resident or citizen. However, we urge you to apply for the program anyway, even if all these requirements are not met. Each program has their own way of calculating the patient's income.

I currently have health insurance but I do not have prescription coverage. Am I still eligible for a patient assistance program?
You may still be eligible, but the particular patient assistance program will determine if you qualify. Some PAP's require you to have no health coverage.
I do not see my medication listed on your site. Does this mean that there is no program for my particular medication?
Just because you do not see your medication listed on our website, does not mean that there isn’t a free medication program that offers it. If you are unable to find your medication on our website, we encourage you to contact the manufacturer directly. Please contact us if you know of any programs we should consider adding to our website.
What is required of my physician during the enrollment process?
This will vary from program to program however, most PAP's require similar information from your physician. Your doctor will be required to answer some questions on the application form, provide a patient diagnosis and attach a prescription for the medication being applied for. In most cases, a signature will also be required.
What do I do if my doctor refuses to fill out the forms?
If this happens, we suggest that you contact your doctor and inform him of your financial hardship. Most PAPs require that the request for medication is made by a licensed health care professional. This professional does not necessarily need to be a physician.
When can I expect to receive my meds from you?
FreeMedPrograms.com is not a patient assistance program; therefore you do not receive medication from us. The medication will come directly from the patient assistance program. For estimated delivery time, please contact the patient assistance program directly. Once you have been notified of your acceptance into a Free Medication Program, it can take 3-8 weeks to receive your medication (depending on the program).
