PPA 2.0 Makes Getting Prescription Assistance Easier
Date:5/12/2010

WASHINGTON, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- As recently reported in the North County Times, the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA), which has helped more than 6.5 million uninsured and financially struggling Americans obtain access to the medicines they need for free or nearly free, has launched new resources to help more patients.

"PPA 2.0" has introduced new online tools that expand community partnerships and enhance PPA's mobile and Internet presence to make it even easier to obtain information about patient assistance programs. In an effort to reach more people in more places, PPA is launching a new text hotline and smart phone application, in addition to the existing toll-free hotline and Web site, to ensure around-the-clock access to information about the more than 475 programs offered through the PPA. Nearly 200 of the programs are provided by pharmaceutical companies.

More than 1,500 national, state and local partners, including the American Lung Association, American Cancer Society and National Urban League, are working with America's pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies to spread the word about the program.

Patients seeking help with their medicines can call PPA's toll-free number (1-888-4-PPA-NOW) to talk to a trained operator or access the PPA Web site (www.pparx.org).

Patients who qualify for help from the PPA's participating patient assistance programs have access to more than 2,500 brand-name and generic prescription medicines. In addition, the PPA provides information on more than 10,000 free health care clinics in America and has connected more than 300,000 patients with clinics and health care providers in their communities.
