New Google Health Application Helps Users Find Patient Assistance Programs for Medications Using

Patient Assistance ( launches on Google Health.

Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) October 28, 2008 --, Inc, a nonprofit organization providing information on thousands of patient assistance programs to help users better manage and reduce prescription drug costs, announced today the release of a new integrated service on the Google Health platform. The new application enables users to automatically search for patient assistance drug programs they are eligible for based on the medications included in their Google Health profile.

Recent economic fluctuations have put more pressure on consumers with medical costs –- especially those individuals likely facing the highest prescription drug costs. It is more important than ever for them to find more affordable ways of getting the medications they need. Patient Assist helps users do just that -– save money on prescription drugs by finding available patient assistance programs. A patient assistance program is a service offered by pharmaceutical companies to help low-income, under-insured, or uninsured individuals and families afford necessary medications, with reduced-cost or free prescription drugs.

"The more medications a patient is required to take, the longer and more difficult it can become for them to find patience assistance programs that meet all of their needs," says Bowden, President of, Inc. "Our new integrated service on the Google Health platform is designed to make that process much easier by allowing users to search for programs on multiple medications at once, while using existing information to save time in searching for eligible programs that meet all, or most, of the patient's needs."

In addition to displaying a list of available patient assistance programs for medications in a user's Google Health Account, also offers a discount drug pricing feature to show users the cost of their listed prescription drugs in their local area.

"Everyone may not qualify for every program, or they may have to wait for their patient assistance program to be approved," says Bowden. "To help alleviate costs for those consumers, also directly provides discount drug pricing at the user's local pharmacy."
