Welcome back friends! I planned on sharing something really personal today, but my heart just wasn’t in it. I don’t want to declare today a BAD day… But it’s just not the best.
Instead I decided to share something much more resourceful especially for the spoonie community! How many times have you been without your medication due to cost? How many times have you needed a price on a medication before you actually go to the pharmacy? How many times have you wished there was an assistance program ready and willing to help? If you answered at least one of these questions with “often” – I hope this post helps you!
Here is a list of patient resources. Things like assistance programs, price estimates and discount cards all in one place.
