Arthritis Copay Cards & Assistance

Let’s face it – many medications and treatment options are expensive. The good news is that there are many types of programs available to help patients pay for medication. We have compiled most programs into one place, with a handy index, to help you find out if there are discounts, assistance programs or rebates available to you.

The first type is a co-pay assistance program. Co-pay cards allow eligible patients to receive savings on their prescription co-payment/co-assistance out-of-pocket costs – think of them like coupons for those who qualify. This section will also include information about medication-specific support programs, if available.

The second type is a pharmaceutical assistance program. Drug companies offer these programs to provide financial assistance for the products that they manufacture. These corporate programs aim to provide eligible patients with low-cost or free medications.

The third type is a patient assistance foundation. These are independent organizations that are usually not-for-profit. The programs that these groups offer seek to alleviate the financial burden of affording expensive medications by locating co-pay assistance programs and pharmaceutical assistance programs for the individual consumer. They also may allocate funds to disease-specific programs and award this financial assistance to qualifying patients. Their services vary, so check out their websites for more information.

These programs can significantly ease the burden on those who have high out-of-pocket expenses for their medicines, and many companies have made it very easy to access their medicines for free or at a reduced price. Participation in these programs varies widely, with some having income requirements while others are made available to all patients.

We have gathered most programs available to patients with arthritis and related conditions and made it easy to reference for our members. If you are aware of an assistance program that is not listed below, please let us know by emailing us at [email protected].
