Seven stories from seven people who are super happy with their super cheap meds and lab tests. If these folks can do it, you can do it too!

๐ŸŒบ “I’ve been so excited to share this with you all. I found the Healthwell Foundation through the vast mountain of resources on this website!

Once my application was complete, I was approved instantly and received my packet in the mail about 6 days later. My reimbursement is a little over $1,200 per year.

To apply, I had to put together various documents. It was a bit confusing but they are very helpful if you need to call for clarification. The whole process took me about three weeks.

Donโ€™t let the low-income requirement scare you off. Try applying anyway! You may qualify. The income limit for a family of 3 is about $80,000. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.” – Jennifer Stone

๐ŸŒบ “My new medication was going to be $250 per month. I went to the drug company’s website and applied for their prescription assistance program. I got the medication totally free.”

๐ŸŒบ “My Ambien was going to be $50, which I thought was terrible. I used GoodRX.com and the cost went down to $8. Big savings! And the coupon is free.”

๐ŸŒบ “Patient Services pays the the co-pays for some of my expensive medications.ย  You don’t even have to be that poor. A single person can qualify for help even if with income of $75,000. They will cover $5,000/year in co-pays.”

๐ŸŒบ “I just got my first shipment of generic Abilify from RxOutreach. If I use Medicare Part D, a three-month supply at a local pharmacy is $339. The cheapest price on Goodrx is $210. The cost on Rxoutreach is $105. Saves me over $800 per year.”

๐ŸŒบ “My husband and I each applied for rxassist.org and we both got free medication.”

๐ŸŒบ “Iโ€™ve used Goodrx and Rxoutreach in the past and it works really well. The income limit for a single person is $35,640, which is fairly generous.”

๐ŸŒบ “I just found out that all my lab tests are going to be completely free!! I’m so relieved. It was going to be several hundred dollars and I had no idea how I was going to pay for it. I went on the website for Quest labs and signed up for their financial aid program and they wrote me that I was approved.”

๐ŸŒบ “I have learned that it pays to shop around for prescriptions and to ask if there are programs to reduce cost. I’m saving several hundred of dollars a year on my heart medication by using a coupon from Amgen.”

๐ŸŒบ Learn about all these programs and so much more: super cheap meds and lab tests.

  1. Thank you for your detailed posts. We were able to get SSI right away by following a very similar tactic you listed – give them all the possible paperwork in one packet. However, I did not know about the housing options until I read your info. Then, I started to google, and the world will not be the same. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!!

  2. Patient Services Inc won’t pay the copays of all my medications – just the medication for Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. They have specific programs for specific medications. If you have extra money left, you can’t use it for your other medications. They give you a secondary insurance card that only applies to the meds in the program you are in.

  3. Most subsidized housing programs will take into account out of pocket medical expenses when calculating your rent. I was able to get my doctor to write all my supplements and HEPA air purifier on a prescription pad and my apartment manager considered those legitimate medical expenses. In most states, medical expenses are also used to calculate food stamps. So if your doctor thinks you need something get them to write it down for you.
