Seniors Guide to Free Medicine (Getting Prescription Help)

Seniors Guide to Free Medicine

If we seniors had just one prescribed pill for every promise politicians have made proposing adequate Medicare-drug benefits, we’d each have a lifetime pile of pharmaceuticals.

More bogus assurances belch forth from Washington daily.

Unfortunately, all the drug company cards, LillyAnswers, Orange Card, Novartis CareCard, etc. have been canceled because “they are not needed with Plan D.”

Yes, that’s what Big Pharma is saying!

Same for most of the free drug patient assistance programs offered.

However, you can still buy cheap drugs abroad, see…Canada: Your Prescription for Lower Drug Prices.
