What is the Partnership for Prescription Assistance?

There are many excellent medicines that can help people live healthier lives. At the same time, many Americans are uninsured and have trouble getting the medicines they need. America’s pharmaceutical research companies want to help.

We want everyone who needs medicines to be able to get it. That’s why you can get help through the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA):
The PPA is a single point of access to more than 475 public and private patient assistance programs, including 180 programs offered by pharmaceutical companies. More than 2,500 brand-name and generic prescription medicines are available through the participating programs —many for free or nearly free. To learn more, call 1-888-4PPA-NOW.
