WASHINGTON, DC—Is your medication too expensive? A 32-page booklet, “Free & Low Cost Prescription Drugs,” published by the Cost Containment Research Institute in Washington, D.C., may be able to help.

The revised fourth edition gives consumers information on how and where to get free and low-cost prescription drugs.

“Many major drug companies provide free or low-cost medication, but rarely, if ever, publicize the programs,” said Gary Nave, director of the Institute. The booklet contains an alphabetical list of medications available through patient assistance programs for free or at very low cost directly from the manufacturer.

The Institute also publishes “Free & Low Cost Medical Care,” a comprehensive list of facilities that are required to give free and low-cost medical care under the Hill-Burton Medical Act. This booklet covers hospital, outpatient and nursing care facilities with more than 700 listings arranged by state.

Consumers can get a copy of either booklet by sending $5 (each) to cover the cost of printing, postage and handling to: Institute Fulfillment Center, P.O. Box 210, Dallas, PA 18612-0210. Consumers can also get more information from the Institute’s Internet web site:
