I don't know what meds you need to take and what their cost is. But when I was using CVS I could get generic prescriptions for very little. It didn't help much with non-generic prescriptions. Also, insulin was way too expensive for me but I was finally approached by a social worker after an emergency last year (had no insurance and just got sicker and sicker). She helped me get into a community care clinic affiliated with my hospital and now I get insulin for free, due to low income (SS), inability to qualify for medicare or medicaid and don't qualify for free insurance. Also, public hospitals (not for profit) have business offices who can refer you to someone there who will explain how you can apply for charity health care. I had to do this for a recent condition that my community care clinic didn't treat and it was surprisingly easy. It is based on the above criteria. Good luck to you on your bone density test and congrats to your husband for his results!
