Paying for prescription drugs can be very costly, especially if you have no insurance or make little money
to pay for expensive medication.

Patient Medication Assistance will locate free medication for you. Hundreds of Pharmaceutical
companies give out free medications under patient assistance programs. Most pharmaceutical companies
do not advertise or widely promote these programs. Patient Medication Assistance will help determine
your eligibility for the patient assistance programs and assist you with completing the proper paperwork
required by each pharmaceutical company.

Each pharmaceutical company has its own requirements. In most cases to be eligible for free medication
applicants must show that:
   * You do not have prescription drug coverage.
   * Your income is low enough that paying for prescription drugs is very difficult.
   * Approximate income for individuals $24,000 or less; 2 people in household $40,000 or less.
   * You do not qualify for Medicaid or other government assistance programs.
Program Features:
  * Mail you completed pharmaceutical applications that only require signatures.
  * Check your forms for completeness and eliminate any unnecessary paper work.
  * Keep track of any changing eligibility requirements.
  * Keep a current data base of almost 200 pharmaceutical companies.
  * Personal service M-F 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Patient Medication Assistance charges for the administrative service of managing and
tracking prescription medications received with our assistance. The medications
themselves are free from the pharmaceutical companies. We keep a data base with more
than 200 pharmaceutical companies that offer free medications, however Xubex and RX
Outreach charge a small co-pay or delivery charge.

Monthly Service Fee

We charge a $32.00 monthly service fee to manage your patient assistance programs. We
will also work with your doctor’s office and pharmaceutical companies to help ensure fast
and accurate refills of your medications.

We bill our clients $32.00 monthly regardless of the number of medications. Your service
is pre-paid each month and you may cancel at any time with a 30 day written notice.

Example:
    In January you begin receiving 5 medications (you pay $32.00 per month)
    In February you add additional medication (you still pay only $32.00 per month)

                 You should receive your first statement in 30 to 45 days.

for any reason you are denied assistance for all of your medications, we will refund all
service fees paid within 10 business days of notification.
