Local residents who have lost their insurance and need help paying for prescription medications can find help Thursday.
The "Help is Here Express" bus, sponsored by the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, will be parked from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday at the Hall County Department of Family and Children’s Services building, 970 McEver Road.
PPA helps match uninsured people with more than 475 patient assistance programs that offer prescription drugs for free or at a greatly reduced price.
People who cannot come to the bus event Thursday can still get access to PPA’s services by visiting its Web site, www.pparx.org, or calling the toll-free number, 888-4PPA-NOW.
PPA only informs patients which assistance programs they may be eligible for; it does not actually help them enroll in the programs.
