Date:12/3/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Redwood Gazette recently reported that there is "hopeful news" for patients who are struggling financially and worried about paying for their medicines. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) has helped more than 6 million patients find programs providing prescription medicines for free or nearly free.

The Partnership for Prescription Assistance has access to information on more than 475 patient assistance programs, including nearly 200 programs offered by pharmaceutical companies. The PPA also provides information on more than 10,000 free health care clinics and health care providers.

"Americans who've been hit hard by the economic crisis need to know that help is out there," says Billy Tauzin, president and CEO of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), "and the PPA is standing by to provide that help."

Patients can visit PPA's easy-to-use Web site (www.pparx.org) or call the toll-free phone number (1-888-4PPA-NOW) where trained operators field calls in 150 languages.
