A national database of free clinics is now available on http://www.needymeds.com [NeedyMeds.com]], a web-based resource of programs that assist with the costs of medicine.

The free clinics listings are in addition to NeedyMeds’ already extensive listings of patient assistance programs, disease based assistance programs and state based assistance

(Vocus) September 10, 2008 -- A national database of free clinics is now available on http://www.needymeds.com [NeedyMeds.com]], a web-based resource for programs that assist with the costs of medicine. The database includes over 2,100 free or low-cost clinics and is the most extensive list available. With the rising cost of heath care, these clinics are a life-line for many Americans.

According to a report released by the Urban Institute, at least 22,000 adults in this country died in 2006 because they did not have health insurance. “ As bad as this statistic is, it does not include all the people who will die or have medical problems in the future because they do not have their medicine today,” said Rich Sagall, MD, President of NeedyMeds.

“We are adding new clinics everyday and this database is important to the work of NeedyMeds because low-cost medicine programs can’t help who people who cannot afford to see a physician,” continued Dr. Sagall.

The NeedyMeds free clinic database is the only one of its kind currently available and the need for this information is growing and critical. Minnesota, for example, has 36 free clinics in the database. A new report from Families USA says that more than three people die each week in Minnesota due to lack of health insurance. Like ma
