Help with COST

Anyone who struggles with a chronic illness knows all too well how much it can take, not only emotionally and physically, but financially!

Is it not enough that we suffer with illnesses and worry about our families futures? What they endure? The stress that they are under? I have seen too many families fall apart due to financial difficulties. The straw that broke the camels back... This should be a time that families are strengthening their bonds, supporting one another and they do it the best they can! Until the bills pile up. The cuts in budgets, the financial burdens of the medications that loved ones need to simply survive.

I am listing a few places that patients can turn to for help in insurance premiums, health costs and yes, medications! Some of these places will not only help with the insurance premiums, copays, but might even be able to offer FREE prescriptions. There are also programs within pharmaceutical companies that can offer help.

Understanding COBRA Premiums


Patient Assistance Programs - Prescriptions

RX Assistance

I am in no way shape of form promoting any of these companies or benefiting from any of these companies that I have posted. They are simply a start for people that need assistance. Just places that I have found during my search for assistance with the costs of my monthly costs of prescription/chronic illness management. I only hope that someone will find help or relief, maybe even just realizing that there are places that will help. You are not alone!

These are just a few of the websites that you can look into and maybe give you a head start in the right direction. Remember that many Pharmaceutical companies offer assistance to patients that enduring financial difficulties. There are also websites that you can find if you use your diagnosis as the key search word when searching or browsing the web.

I will work hard to add as many websites to my blog as I can that others can find inspiration, help or support. Emotionally, spiritually and financially. Please send me questions, if there is anything I can help anyone with research, I am here to help!

God Bless you all!

  1. I was diagnosed with CVID in 2006 after nearly 10 years of suffering. Now my husband lost his job and health insurance benefits. I only have medicare and that won't cover the $13K a week infusions. I am scared now. Before I was diagnosed, I was planning my own death. Now I am wondering if its back to that plan.
    Also, since I live in Colorado, National Jewish has done many tests on me, and wanted to do a test to see if the CVID is only passed through the females in my family which would add Auto-Somal Recessive in front of CVID. The only lab in the US that did the test has since closed, so clueless on that.
    Thanks for options you listed as I will look into those.
