The Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA) is an excellent resource for seniors needing help obtaining their prescription medications. For eight years the PPA has helped more than eight million Americans receive the prescription medications they rely on to maintain a normal way of life. Without these programs, many of the PPA recipients would not have anywhere to turn for their medication needs and would, most likely, skip taking their prescriptions. Image having diabetes and not being able to afford the daily insulin required to maintain your blood sugar levels. Eventually, you may lose your sight or even a limb as a result of a lack of insulin. The good news? The PPA is here to help you.

From finding a free clinic to receiving support after a natural disaster, the PPA has hundreds of resources to help you, someone you know or someone you help.
