What We OfferHelp for Those in Need
Many people have difficulty affording health care, including prescription medicines. A number of patient assistance programs provide help to patients who lack prescription drug coverage and earn less than 200% of the federal poverty level (approximately $19,000 for an individual or $31,000 for a family of three).*
- More than 27 million people in the United States make less than 200% of the federal poverty level and are uninsured.
Patients will be directed to the public or private programs most likely to meet their needs. Rx4Illinois helps low-income, uninsured patients:
- Enroll in more than 150 company patient assistance programs
- Access more than 1,200 medicines for free or at a low cost
- Learn how to contact government programs for which they may qualify, such as Medicaid, Medicare, or the State Children’s Health Insurance Program
