If you don't qualify for health insurance/medicare, etc you may qualify for free insulin and even most medications by simply applying for patient assistance from the manufacturer. I looked all this up the other day. You can make as much as 300% higher than the average income and still qualify for free medications, if more than that though you can still qualify for a percentage off.
Humulin or Humalog:
made by Eli Lilly and Company
go to this website and pick the program u wish to apply for:
For all other medications try these websites:
Some of these places offer a mail order service for pills at a much lower cost regardless of income, some of the insulin companies require a w-4 as proof of low income and then deliver the insulin to your doctor for you for free.
Personally the only thing I saw that helped me was the cholesterol pill (Simvastatin) I've been paying $45 a month for i can now get 3 months worth for $40 from the manufacturer. And Pfizer is letting me get one prescription (Chantix) about $10 cheaper a month.
If there are medications you take that you can't find, let me know, perhaps I can help u find them.
Hope this helps!
