NeedyMeds Prescription Assistance

Wednesday April 08, 2020

We know many people affected by Parkinson’s struggle with the budgetary impact of medications. Every day at NW Parkinson’s we work with people to identify sources of prescription financial assistance, so no one has to choose between basic necessities and filling a prescription to manage their Parkinson’s. In addition, NW Parkinson’s has partnered with NeedyMeds.org, a nationwide clearinghouse for prescription assistance and patient savings programs.  Read more about NeedyMeds.org and how to receive assistance!
