A program that coordinates public and private prescription assistance programs is beginning in the Bay State.
The program, funded by a Pharmaceutical Industry Group, will help patients who earn less than twice the poverty level find the companies or government agencies that offer free or low cost medicines.
The Partnership for Prescription Assistance is encouraging people to call its toll free number 1-888-477-2669, or visit its Web site.
This program aired on September 13, 2005. The audio for this program is not available.
