First, you must track down the patient assistance program for your medication. Not all of the programs have the name of the medication or even the name of the pharmaceutical company in the name of the program, so it can be difficult to find.
There are hundreds of patient assistance programs and each one is different. They each require different applications, have different guidelines, and ask for different proof of income. Their processing times and shipping practices are different too.
Whether you are in one or several patient assistance programs, the only way to stay on top of all of the dates and guidelines is to be very organized.
Unfortunately, patient assistance programs often change their guidelines and application forms without announcing it. Often programs will not share information unless they are specifically asked about it.
