  •  I have no money right now but I have a great link. (9+ / 0-)

    http://www.goodrx.com

    You put in your zip code and the name of the drug you need and it lists the pharmacies near you and their prices.

    AND it gives you a coupon for each store. It cut the last drug I was taking from $140 per month to $37.

    I'm in another "just say no to poor people state" - TN, but we do have a lot of clinics and free resources.

    Anyone in NC know of any there and if so could a list be compiled for MsSpentyouth?

    •  Thanks, ZenTrainer (10+ / 0-)

      I do utilize GoodRX.com and several other patient-assistance programs (Xubex, as well as individual pharmaceutical companies' patient-assistance programs for specific medications). They are INVALUABLE.

      When I got started on needing such things, my friends and I organized a data-entry party and got started on printing and completing the basic information on as many forms as we could. It was awesome. Completing that much paperwork can be overwhelming, especially when someone's sick and thinking is a little impaired.

      I heartily recommend this tactic for facing the mountain of paperwork! Friends make even form-filling-outting so much easier and more companionable.

      I take advantage of many free clinics, and there's also Access Healthcare in Apex. But with seven tumors in various glands and organs and a gimpy bone-marrow cell factory and other things, there are several specialists involved, and most specialists don't do free or cheap or even on-account; it's cash-on-the-barrelhead or nothing. (The Cancer Center of NC people are super-kind about letting me have a balance on account, but endocrinologists seem crankier ... or just more pragmatic?)

      If someone needs information on available free and low-cost clinics, let me know. I have a notebook just for affordable medical services. Another notebook for assistance with transportation (Volunteer Caregivers, TRACS, C-Tran, etc.), another for mental-health offerings.

      I am incredibly lucky. Just unbelievably so. This has been a month, though, with a lot of things hitting at the same time and it's been impossible to keep on top of things. Thankfully, I'm not treading water alone!! Sara and Ann and you and so many others are helping me keep afloat.

      Thank you.
