NeedyMeds provides an application hub for patients who need assistance when paying for medications and other health care expenses, states NeedyMeds.org. As of 2015, NeedyMeds offers a list of 625 assistance programs intended for recipients with no health coverage or financial obstacles that limit alternative payment options.
NeedyMeds is a national nonprofit organization primarily funded by grants and donations, according to its website. The company doesn't operate patient assistance programs, but it provides up-to-date application downloads in PDF format for reputable programs through organizations such as AbbVie and Merck. The applications generally require signatures from the licensed practitioners prescribing the drugs, and many of the programs provide funding for specific prescription medications or treatments.
