Living on 13,000.00 a year, my doctor will not longer be able to give me free samples?

Total cost of prescriptions per month $350.00. One of the prescriptions is Lamictal, I don't want to discontinue that one. I'm on S.S disability and get a discount on my medication as it is.

    Find out who the manufacturer of the RX is, some companies offer assistance with the costs. Another thing you can do that I've recommended is a web site called www.needymeds.com, they assist people with finding either local organizations or federal programs that can help with prescription costs. Another thing you can do is call SSC and apply for low income subsidy. If you qualify level one has no out of pocket expenses and no co-pays for prescriptions. other levels have different co-pays. Hope this helps.

    While I know it is different on disability, I would still recommend contacting your local "Area Agency on Aging." They have a lot of information on living on small incomes, and medication on Social Security.

    Also, contact your Social Worker -- they should be able to help you find a way.

    Call your state representative and tell him the problem. They usually have information and suggestions about possible alternatives. Some drug companies do provide free meds too.

    I'm sorry. I know outrageous health care costs cause many people to choose paying their bills or staying alive.

    Check with your state and see if you qualify for Medicaid to pay for your prescriptions. You might also check for help at http://www.pparx.org

    Check this site http://www.pparx.org. There are some forms to fill out and will require your doctor to fill out sections of it, but it can cover up to 100% of all your medications.
