Prescription Assistance is Available in New Mexico?
Pharmaceutical companies, nonprofit foundations, and government-funded insurance programs offer prescription assistance to New Mexico residents living with chronic diseases requiring long-term treatment with often costly medications. People with diseases such as diabetes, cancer, congestive heart failure, COPD, dementia, AIDs, end stage renal disease and many more have much to gain by enrolling in such programs.
The New Mexico Drug Card gives New Mexico residents discounted prices on prescription medications. Discounts average 30% and can be as high as 80% at pharmacies throughout the state. The card itself is free, and you can download and print one for immediate use.
New Mexico’s Medicaid program offers medical coverage jointly funded by the state and federal governments for vulnerable residents of New Mexico. Those who meet the eligibility criteria for Medicaid can get their prescriptions filled for little or no cost.
New MexiKids and New MexiTeens are Medicaid programs for uninsured children under 19 years of age from families whose income does not exceed 235% of the federal poverty level.
The New Mexico AIDS/HIV Drug Assistance Program gives uninsured and underinsured New Mexico residents living with HIV or AIDS free or very low cost access to AIDS-related medications.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill raises awareness of the existence of prescription assistance programs that can make an enormous difference in the quality of life for patients with chronic diseases and their loved ones. Reducing their financial burden decreases stress, which is known to exacerbate symptoms and can hasten the progress of many diseases. We are proud to serve as a bridge between those in need of prescription assistance and the programs and organizations that are offering it.
How Does New Mexico Prescription Assistance Work?
Pharmaceutical companies that offer prescription assistance for the medications they manufacture typically provide those drugs free of charge for a period of six or, more commonly, twelve months, after which patients must reapply. For those who meet the eligibility criteria, government-funded insurance programs cover prescription costs in full or for a small co-pay that’s usually no more than a few dollars.
