En EspaƱol: Programa de Ayuda para Medicinas

Allina Health providers see patients every day who rely on prescription medicines to manage chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. But for patients who have low income, are uninsured or underinsured, the cost of medications is too high.

The Allina Health Prescription Assistance Program works to bridge this gap so patients can focus on getting better and not worry about how to pay for the medicine they need.

Prescription Assistance Program staff members can help you apply to pharmaceutical companies for free or reduced-cost medications. The process takes 4 to 6 weeks.
