Most drug manufacturers help people in financial need, regardless of their age. However, in order to qualify you need to meet the following three basic requirements:
1.-You do not currently have insurance coverage for outpatient prescription medicines
2.-Your income is at a level that causes hardship when prescription medicines are purchased at retail price
3.-You do not qualify for a government or third party program that provides for prescription medicine coverage
Keep in mind that sponsor's individual's income criteria vary with family incomes ranging from bellow the poverty level to up to $60,000!
Those applicants normally qualifying at the highest income limits are generally MS, AIDS, transplant or cancer patients in need of very expensive drugs.
