Partnership for Prescription Assistance Celebrates Three Year Anniversary; Helps Nearly 5 Million Uninsured Patients Across United States
Date:4/7/2008

"Since January of 2006, I've been traveling the country talking about the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, urging people to make one call that can change their lives and help them afford their prescription medications," said Williams. "And the word is getting out. But our job is not done, and for the millions still in need of assistance, I urge them to pick up the phone, log on to our Web site or visit the big orange PPA bus to see if they may qualify for assistance."

"For three years, the PPA has been a concerted and effective effort to reach those who still need help," said Williams. "And I'm going to do everything I can to get the word out. As a patient who must cope every day with the effects of multiple sclerosis, I understand only too well the importance of having access to the medicine you need."

More than 1,300 national, state and local partners, including American Academy of Family Physicians, the NAACP and the National Medical Association, are working with America's pharmaceutical research companies to spread the word about the program. Trained specialists work with doctors, pharmacists, health care providers and community groups, educating them on the process and use of the PPA's easy-access Web site and toll-free number.

Over 2,500 different brand-name and generic prescription medicines are available through participating patient assistance programs. In addition, the PPA provides information on nearly 10,000 free health care clinics and has connected more than 135,000 patients with clinics and health care providers in their communities.

To find out if there are patient assistance programs that may meet their needs, patients should call toll-free
