Many special needs persons are on medication to help control symptoms of their diagnosis.
Many families do not have insurance coverage and the costs can be astronomical and financially draining.
So, is it really possible to get medications for less or free that can be very much needed for many?
The short answer is yes! The long answer is it takes a lot of digging and searching.
As Jessica recently had to switch medications for her youngest it was extremely costly for out-of-pocket expenses without any insurance coverage. So she went digging!
Below are links to websites that offer assistance programs free to Canadians for help with covering costs of brand-name prescription drugs.
Below is the Government Of Canada Website that has information on programs offered per province.
Guidelines and availability do differ per province and locations of pharmacies please check your area and suppliers.
Other options for helping cover prescription costs can be:
Free samples from your physicians Monthly coverage cards from physicians Ask your pharmacies what programs they support or offer Watch for coupons
Always remember your Healthcare professionals are there to help you just have to ask.
Our workbook can help you track and update others on important information such as medication.
