Prescription Assistance

There are many resources available to help you with prescription and insurance costs. In addition to the ones listed here, you can also ask your doctor or pharmacist if they have any resources, or check with the manufacturer of your (brand) medication for additional assistance.

Comprehensive Medicine Assistance Tool Search Engine – PhRMA’s Medicine Assistance Tool (MAT) is a search engine designed to help patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers learn more about the resources available through the various biopharmaceutical industry programs. MAT is not its own patient assistance program, but rather a search engine for many of the patient assistance resources that the biopharmaceutical industry offers.
