"It's important to remember that for each person searching for a patient assistance program, there are others in need who don't yet know these programs exist," says Bowden. "It's true that these search statistics allow us to see a sampling of those uninsured and under-insured patients and the drugs they need assistance with. It's even important, however, that we and pharmaceutical companies continue to do more to reach out to those patients eligible for, but not yet taking advantage of, these patient assistance programs."
