The Enrollment Process
The Rx Helper was founded to help solve the problem of the uninsured and under-insured needing prescription assistance for medications in America. The Rx Helper helps to qualify patients without prescription drug coverage get the medicines they need for little or no money through what is known as prescription assistance programs. Since these programs were meant to help Americans who cannot afford their prescription medications, there are a few requirements to qualify for enrollment.
We bring together America’s pharmaceutical companies, doctors, other health care providers, patient advocacy organizations and community groups to help qualified patients without prescription drug coverage get medications through prescription assistance programs that are right for them. Without discounts, many American citizens are left skipping treatment doses or foregoing treatment completely; leaving them with a low quality of life.
Our mission is to increase awareness of patient assistance and boost enrollment of those who are eligible through a variety of prescription assistance programs.
The exact definition of economic “hardship” varies with each Patient Assistance Program. Most Prescription Assistance Programs adhere to a formula related to the Federal Poverty guidelines.
If your income is below 400% of the Federal Poverty guidelines, then you will most likely qualify. The qualifying income levels for the most current year are outlined below.
Qualifying for Enrollment for Prescription Assistance
The Rx Helper’s enrollment process is very quick and easy. We ask a few qualifying questions to make sure that you are available for the appropriate patient assistance program.
There are over 270 Patient Assistance Programs. Each Patient Assistance Program has different qualification guidelines. However, if you meet the following three conditions you will more than likely qualify for these programs.
-Be a United States resident or legal citizen
-Have little or no prescription insurance coverage
-Have an income below 400% of the Federal poverty level (see the table below as reference)
