RxHelp.ca’s mission is to provide Canadian health care consumers access to brand-name pharmaceutical manufacturers “Patient Assistance Programs”.
Patient payment assistance programs are run by many brand-name pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide significant savings on brand-name prescription medicines. RxHelp.ca connects Canadian patients to these pharmaceutical manufacturer’s payment assistance programs FREE of charge.
here are 3 main types of programs:
- Patient Choice Programs – Allow the patient to remain on their brand name medicine with little or no additional cost over the generic equivalent.
- Patient Assistance Programs – Help offset or reduce the out-of-pocket patient costs that are not covered by the patient’s public or private drug plan. Some or all of the out-of-pocket patient costs will be paid by the manufacturer of the product up to a defined maximum.
- eSample Programs – Allows the patient to receive the prescribed medication for a certain number of days at no cost to the patient, based on reasonable up-charge, mark-up and usual customary pharmacy fee. Physician Access Only.
See the Payment Assistance Programs for the brand-name prescription medicines included in the RxHelp.ca program.
To use your card you must fill a valid prescription at a participating pharmacy in Canada.
After receiving your RxHelp.ca card simply present your RxHelp.ca card when purchasing your included brand-name prescription at a participating pharmacy and you will receive your payment assistance immediately.
The RxHelp.ca card is accepted at most pharmacies in Canada.
Another way to get some help if you need a certain medication prescribed by your doctor is to ask if they have any samples available if you do not have any prescription coverage..or cannot afford co pay. Most doctors offices will have samples to give for certain medications.
