What Prescription Assistance is Available in Texas?
Many Texans living with chronic diseases such as COPD, congestive heart failure, diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or Parkinson’s disease are having to skip doses or make difficult financial sacrifices because of high U.S. prescription costs. Even those with insurance may find it difficult to meet high co-pays. Luckily, many patients can get prescription assistance through drug manufacturers such as Abbot, Novartis, Pfizer, Sanofi, and many others or through a government-funded health insurance plan.
The Texas Drug Card is available at no cost to all Texas residents regardless of age or income. While the average discount is around 30%, it can be up to 80% for some medications.
Texas Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) include prescription coverage in the health benefits available to low-income Texans who meet the eligibility requirements.
The Texas HIV Medication Program (THMP) provides prescription assistance for low-income Texas residents living with HIV/AIDS. Eligible individuals should be able to get their AIDS-related medications at little or no cost.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
At Simplefill, we describe what we do as bridging the gap between those who need prescription assistance and those who can provide it. On a deeper level, by making that connection we bring stress relief and a better quality of life not only to the patients we serve but also to their family members. The entire household can be negatively impacted by the financial burden of chronic illness and the emotional stress of a loved one’s long-term illness. Once a new Simplefill member is receiving prescription assistance, everyone in the family can breathe a deep sigh of relief.
How Does Texas Prescription Assistance Work?
The two main sources of prescription assistance work in different ways:
- Those receiving prescription assistance directly from a pharmaceutical company or a foundation established by one to ensure patient access to the drugs the company manufactures typically get their medications for free for a period of 6 or 12 months, after which they must reapply for assistance.
- Government-funded insurance plans for eligible low-income Texans offer prescription coverage with a small co-pay or no co-pay at all.
