The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is a nationwide effort sponsored by AmericaвЂ™s pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies.
The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is a nationwide effort sponsored by AmericaвЂ™s pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies. PPA has helped more than 6 million uninsured and financially-struggling Americans get information about programs that provide prescription medicines for free or nearly free.
Our mission is to increase awareness of patient assistance programs and boost enrollment of those who are eligible. We offer a single point of access to more than 475 public and private programs, including nearly 200 offered by pharmaceutical companies.
Launched in April of 2005, PPA is free, confidential, and it is easy for patients to find programs for which they may eligible to apply. Our member programs offer more than 2,500 brand-name medicines, including a wide range of generics. We also have more than 40 assistance programs that focus on the medication and health care needs of children.
AmericaвЂ™s pharmaceutical research and biotechnology companies are working with doctors, pharmacists, other health care providers, patient advocacy organizations and community groups to educate patients about the PPA. PPA has joined forces with more than 1,300 leading national, state and local organizations, including the American Academy of Family Physicians, American Cancer Society, American College of Emergency Physicians, Easter Seals, National Association of Chain Drug Stores, United Way and the Urban League.
Patients can get help through our website www.pparx.org or by calling 1-888-4PPA-NOW. Our National call center is open Monday вЂ“ Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance iPhone application is designed to give patients, their friends and loved ones another resource to get the help they need.
With this application, patients can scroll through the medicines offered by PPA member programs or locate one of 10,000 free health care clinics across the United States. They can also learn more about the Partnership for Prescription Assistance and email or text a friend about the program. To get further assistance, they can contact PPAвЂ™s call center directly through the application.
