Partnership for Prescription Assistance Prepared to Help Georgia Workers Hurt by Recession
Date:3/19/2009

ATLANTA, March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The "Help is Here Express" bus tour will be stopping in Georgia the week of March 23-27 at various cities throughout the state in order to help uninsured and financially-struggling Georgians access information on programs that provide prescription medicines for free or nearly free. With unemployment rates in Georgia having risen for nine straight months, and having passed the national unemployment rate (7.6 percent) to stand today at 8.1 percent, the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is ready to help state residents who face layoffs and loss of health care benefits determine if they may qualify for free or nearly free medicines.

The PPA, a nationwide effort sponsored by America's pharmaceutical research companies, provides a single point of access to more than 475 patient assistance programs that help those who are uninsured or struggling financially. Nearly 200 of the programs are provided by pharmaceutical companies.
