The “Help is Here” bus travelling across the country offering help applying for drug company assistance programs is in CT this week. Drug company assistance applications can be confusing; each company has different eligibility standards and discounts vary widely. The assistance program you apply to depends on which drugs you are taking. Questions you will need to answer at the bus include age, address, income, number of people living in your household, brand name of your prescriptions, and details about any coverage you have. The bus’ services are offered free of charge. This morning, Tuesday, from 10am to noon the bus will be on South Main Street in West Hartford, and this afternoon at Charter Oak Health Center in Hartford from 2-4pm. Wednesday the bus will be on Main Street in Manchester from 10am to noon and at the State Capitol (in a press conference with Sen. Prague) from 2-4pm. On Thursday the bus will be at Hammonasset State Park in Madison from 10am to noon and in Norwich from 2-4pm. For more info on the bus, call (202) 835-3460. If you can’t make it to the bus, you can also apply online or call 1-888-477-2669. The bus is sponsored by the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, a collaboration of drug companies.
