PatientAssistance.com, Inc., a nonprofit organization providing information on thousands of patient assistance programs to help users better manage and reduce prescription drug costs, announced today the release of a new integrated service on the Google Health platform. The new application enables users to automatically search for patient assistance drug programs they are eligible for based on the medications included in their Google Health profile.
Patient Assist helps users do just that â€“ save money on prescription drugs by finding available patient assistance programs. A patient assistance program is a service offered by pharmaceutical companies to help low-income, under-insured, or uninsured individuals and families afford necessary medications, with reduced-cost or free prescription drugs.
In addition to displaying a list of available patient assistance programs for medications in a userâ€™s Google Health Account, PatientAssistance.com also offers a discount drug pricing feature to show users the cost of their listed prescription drugs in their local area.
