Don’t Wait ’til 2006 for Free Drugs

Or, if you are a senior having trouble paying for your Viaga or any other prescription drug, you don’t have to worry about how much in premiums you are going to pay for in the new Medicare Prescription drug program that only pays a portion of your drugs costs anyway, and doesn’t even start until 2006. There are current programs at state governments and even from the drug companies themselves where you can be making up to $40,000 a year, at any age, and get all of your prescription drugs for free right now.

Free Prescription Drugs

Drug companies will give certain people who cannot afford their medications their drugs free of charge. Your doctor will likely have to sign a form, and then the company will ship the medications to you or the doctor. I just checked the web site for Phizer and you can have an income up to $25,000 and even get Viagra for free! They are all there except Tap Pharmaceutical. You call them at 800-830-1015. Many state governments also have financial help for prescription drugs free through the Patients Assistance Program.
