potential new med assistance

this is a service that asks you certain questions and matches you with programs from the phrarma that might be right for you.   

Basically  they ask you certain questions and see what 'category' you fall into and then can refer you to programs offered by big pharma. 

I registered today... i don't know if it's worth shit or not, but they said I qualified for a few drug company programs..  i will keep you updated,  Can the mods/owners chime in if this is legit? 

It sounds like it is.

I'm not taken in easily by frauds.. but this does sound legit to me.... a good program similar to adap or basically a drug assitance program thru the providers.... i can't give any recommendations just yet as they really only provide  you referrals to the corporate programs you might be eligble for. But anythign that might save money is a good thing.

How did you learn of this service?  Can you look up their company name in the BBB?

Please do be cautious and don't get taken by a hidden scam.

Good luck.

It seems to be legit, but I'm wondering how they make money, or if they are a non-profit outfit. I Googled the phone number and came up with a website - here's the About Us page from same:

i just got a report on this from emeradize... and from her initial discussions it's 100% legit... she will be speaking with some industry reps further about this so stay tuned for updates.

oh, i originally saw it on television and it's not just for hiv/aids... just med programs in general.  I'm still waiting on my 'package' of info, so i'll keep you tuned.

Still not sure how much a benefit it may be, but who knows. 

PS:  if you do call and 'enroll', they will ask for personal information and the meds you currently take... the lady i spoke with kinda had no clue what the meds were truvada/viramune but her computer said there are programs i qualify for based upon income (which i'll likely be excluded from because i have company sponsored insurance)

Bailey,

Don't feel that because you are covered under insurance that you may not qualify.  I'm currently enrolled in a program that will help pay for my prescription co-pays 100%.  They would also help pay for my premium if it was a personal policy not company sponsored.  (They didn't feel it would be prudent to send my health insurance a third party check and to remove the payments from my paychecks).  I work full time and have health coverage.  Hopefully, you have something like that in your area.

Hey you guys....Montel Williams has been doing commercials for them for quite a while now. The ASO's around here recommend them highly for us poor folk, as our ADAP program is the suckiest in the country.
The pharmaceutical companies have always had these programs, they just weren't widely advertised. We used to refer our patients to their compassionate use programs all the time.

Hi Bailey and Everyone Else,

This just adds affirmation to what others have written. I did hear back from someone today and it is legitimate.
