Hi,
Check out: uneedpsi.org If I remember correctly this site helps you if you have P or other specific diseases.
Also, healthwellfoundation.org helps with meds and more.
There are more and I'm sure mikek will be by to give you all of the links for the discussions on sites. Kathy

Hi Holly,

YIKES!!!! I'm so sorry.

Sue (Beachbound) called Enbrel and they made arrangements, with a mail order pharmacy, which significantly lowered her Enbrel related expenses. Here's a link to her original horror story: http://www.psoriasis.org/forum/showthread.php?t=11307 and here's a link to her update: http://www.psoriasis.org/forum/showthread.php?t=11753.

Also, at least two people who sometimes post here were able to get help with Enbrel thanks to a program called http://www.needymeds.com. It sounds like a scam site, but as I mentioned at least two posters were able to get Enbrel for free thanks to http://www.needymeds.com. Links to their stories can be found in a thread that was started by Leslie (screen name: Momtotwogirls). She took the time to post the links and information about several assistance programs that she came across. I added links and information about several other assistance programs that were discussed on this Board. With the exception of http://www.needymeds.com, we know nothing else about most of these assistance programs. However, it can't hurt to check them out. Here's a link to Leslie's thread: http://www.psoriasis.org/forum/showthread.php?t=12379&highlight=Leslie.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Keep us posted.

Mike
