Microsoft word - prescription assistance programs rev 03202013.doc

Below is a list of prescription assistance programs (PAP). Each PAP has
criteria that the consumer must meet in order to use the PAP. In some
cases, those who receive Medicaid or Medicare may not be eligible for these
programs. Most require that a prescriber submit the PAP paperwork, and
medication is sent to the prescriber to give to the consumer.
The programs listed here do not charge a fee; a few offer medication at
lower costs. Be aware that other programs do charge an additional service
fee, ranging from $5 to $20 per prescription. You should not pay a fee to
apply for these programs.

purchase-you can use whichever one benefits you the most for that
The New Mexico Drug Card can be printed out off of the internet once the
form has been filled out. If you do not have the capability to print you can
visit any Albertsons or Smith’s Pharmacy in New Mexico and asks the
pharmacy to bill through the New Mexico Drug Card. The New Mexico Drug
Card is accepted at over 50,000 pharmacies around the country. A list of
participating pharmacies is available on the website.

The NM MEDBANK Program can be used by any New Mexican who does not have prescription drug coverage or has used up their prescription benefit through drug company patient assistance programs. Each company has its own guidelines for eligibility; they usually require that the patient be low- to middle-income, need the medication to treat a chronic condition, have no drug insurance coverage; and not be eligible for or enrolled in other types of assistance programs. The medication cost is free or a small co-pay. To sign up: If you go to a clinic, ask if it is a NM MEDBANK site and their office staff will help you. Otherwise, call for a complete application packet at 1-866-451-2901. The NM Medbank program also has Emergency Drug Assistance

filled out a MEDBANK application that is ready for submission. This one-time
