Find Help with the Cost of Medicine
NeedyMeds is a national non-profit organization that maintains a website of free information on programs that help people who can't afford medications and healthcare costs. More than 1.3 million patients, family members, healthcare professionals, social workers and patient advocates use the NeedyMeds website each year. We regularly update data on over 5,000 assistance programs, 13,000 free/low-cost/sliding scale clinics and 1,500 drug discount coupons. We also publish information about resources for specific diseases. All our information is accessible online, at no charge and without registration.
NeedyMeds relies on six sources of financial support:
License fees for organizations' use of our databases
Sales of PAPTracker software, that helps clinics simplify Patient Assistance Program application processes
A small transaction fee on every use of the free NeedyMeds drug discount card
Thoroughly reviewed supporting partners on our website
Fees from pharmaceutical companies for call center and application processing services
Corporate and individual donations
NeedyMeds provides a free drug discount card that offers a discount of up to 80% at more than 63,000 pharmacies nationwide. Anyone can use the card regardless of income level or insurance status and no registration is required. The same card can be used by friends and family members to save on prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs and medical supplies written on a prescription form, and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy.
