Am Fam Physician. 2001;63(9):1686
to the editor: The letters of responses to “Bending the Rules to Get a Medication”1 focused on the illegality of changing the patient's name on a prescription in order to obtain insurance coverage for the medication, then presented alternatives for patients who couldn't afford their medications.
One letter stated the office nurse maintained a file of assistance programs associated with the pharmaceutical firms.
I believe it would be a great service to your readers to inform them of the following Web site that provides this file of assistance programs free of charge:http://www.NeedyMeds.com.
