Married couple, Marshall and Linda, ages 76 and 77, both suffer with rheumatoid arthritis. They were both taking the same medication for years and learned that their drug was moved to a higher tier on Medicare. Instead of a $20 copay, it was now going to cost nearly $500 per month. They had tried other drugs, but found this was the only one that worked. Their doctor's appeal to the insurance company was denied and they were out of hope. They agonized over a way to pay for the medicine because, as Linda pointed out, "the drug was more important than our food."
Marshall and Linda talked about it and made the decision that they were going to cut back on food so they could afford their medicine. Fortunately, Marshall heard about Rx Outreach and called about the drug. He and Linda cried when they found out they could get their medicine for free. Because of Rx Outreach, they didn't have to make that terrible choice between food and medicine.
Sadly, their story is not unique. Many people choose to cut back on food, take their medication every other day, or cut pills in half – just because they can't afford their medicine.
Fortunately Rx Outreach is here to help. We are able to make medicine affordable because of the generosity of our donors – YOU!
