NeedyMeds is a great non-profit resource website; it is one of my go-to websites for grant recipients needing help with medical bills. Their mission is to help “people in need find assistance programs to help them afford their medications and costs related to health care.”
Their website is packed with great information – really packed! When navigating NeedyMeds, go slowly and give yourself time to take it all in. I highly recommend starting your journey on Needymeds website homepage and giving yourself at least 30 minutes to explore that page completely. Once you are familiar with the homepage sidebar and have signed up to receive the NeedyMeds drug discount card, it is time to delve deeper into the site. I recommend visiting the diagnosis-based assistance page if you need help with a specific diagnosis or the free/Low-cost/sliding-scale clinics to find an affordable care center near you.
Over the course of the year, I will periodically share my helpful hints about the programs & services of NeedyMeds and other national organizations that you might find useful in your daily life.
