New Hope and Help For AIDS Patients

New Hope and Help For AIDS Patients

09.12.12 | By Mark Grayson

Great news for patients with HIV/ AIDS who cannot afford their medicine. Pharmaceutical companies working with the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Association of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) have developed a new online common form to access your HIV meds. To access this form go to www.pparx.org and click on the red button.

At the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) AIDS patients also will be able to access programs that could provide other medicines they may need.

How does this program work?

The PPARx prescription assistance program was created to make it easier for low-income uninsured patients to get free or nearly free prescription medicines through existing patient assistance programs, while providing the highest level of service. Once you provide the Web site with some basic information related to prescription medicines, income, and current prescription medicine coverage, PPARx will be able to tell you what patient assistance programs you may be eligible for.

If patients do not have access to a computer or need additional help they can call our toll free number, 1-800-477-2669.

PhRMA and its member companies congratulate Sec. Sebelius on her leadership in working to help AIDS.
