What Prescription Assistance is Available in Louisiana?
Many residents in Louisiana are living with chronic diseases and medical conditions that require an uninterrupted supply of medications to provide symptomatic relief and prevent disease progression. People with lupus, COPD, heart disease, epilepsy, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and other serious medical problems may qualify to receive prescription assistance from pharmaceutical companies, nonprofit organizations, and state-sponsored programs.
The Louisiana Drug Card is available at no cost to all residents of Louisiana, no matter what their income or insurance status is. You can download a pre-activated card and immediately receive prescription discounts of up to 80%.
The Louisiana Children’s Health Insurance program, or LaCHIP, is a Medicaid program that covers uninsured children who are under the age of 19. Eligibility is based on income standards that are higher than traditional Medicaid.
The Louisiana Drug Assistance Program (L-DAP) offers prescription assistance to cover the cost of AIDS-related medications for Louisianans with HIV/AIDS who meet the program’s eligibility criteria.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill provides an easy way for people in need of prescription assistance to connect with the programs that offer it. Many of the people with the greatest need aren’t even aware that such help is available. Yet for people with chronic diseases requiring regular doses of often costly medications, getting help to pay for them can make an enormous difference in their stress level and quality of life.
How Does Louisiana Prescription Assistance Work?
Some prescription assistance programs are offered by the nonprofit foundations sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. Others are government-funded. The former usually provide approved medication free of charge for a certain period of time, after which the patient must reapply for further assistance. Some government-funded programs provide free medications while others require a small co-pay from patients.
