'Help is Here Express' Arrives in Anderson, Seneca
Date:10/8/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Anderson Independent Mail reported that the Partnership for Prescription Assistance "Help is Here Express" bus visited Anderson and Seneca, South Carolina last month.

The bus, funded by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), travels around the country helping people get information about programs that offer prescription assistance.

Karen Spencer was grateful the bus stopped in Anderson. She and her husband Roy stood in line for about an hour at the Anderson County Farmers Market waiting for assistance.

"They helped me find some programs that I can go to for help," she said. Karen takes one medicine that costs her about $200 a month.

Jeff Gilbert, a spokesman for PhRMA, said there are about 475 patient assistance programs designed to help people get the medicines they need for free or nearly free. Gilbert said about 130,000 South Carolina residents have applied for help through the program since it began in 2005.

The bus staff helped about 50 people in Seneca and about 75 in Anderson.

"The economy is still down and, when it's down, we see a spike in the number of people who ask for help," said the bus staff.

Peggy Davenport's mother has been paying about $500 a month for her prescriptions out of her own pocket. Peggy came to the Anderson event to get try to get her mother some help.

"When you don't draw much, that's tough to come up with."
