I am 25 years old, and have a failed suicide attempt on my record. Now I am on a boat load of prescriptions, and also see a psychiatrist a few times a year. I will no longer be eligible to be on my parents health insurance when I turn 26 later this year, and the cost of my prescriptions without insurance would be close to $1000 a month. Needless to say, that is not even close to anything I could afford. I am a full time student, and will not be able to work full time to gain insurance through employment. All individual insurance plans I've look at are astronomically expensive, because of my condition and prescriptions. Are there any government programs that could help me? These med's help so much, and I cringe at the thought of having to live how I did before them for the rest of my life. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Many drug companies will provide free medication if you meet their income guidelines. Go to the mnfg's website and look up your drug and see if they have any help programs. A good place to start is "needymeds.org". Good Luck and God Bless!
