These programs are typically offered by pharmaceutical companies aimed mainly to help patients get the medication they desperately need. It helps qualifying patients who do not have prescription drug coverage to get free or low-cost medicines through the public or private programs that's suited for them. Doctors, health care providers, patient advocacy organizations and community groups come together to create a network of patient support system for the needy patients.
