How to Apply to Free Prescription Drug Programs:"Below is a list of some of the drug companies that have programs allowing patients to receive free prescription drugs. Each drug company offers about the same program, though some are a little different. Either the doctor or the patient calls the representative listed and can request information on how to sign up for the Indigent Patient Program. The drug company will then send out the appropriate forms to fill out. Send the form back with the prescription, and the company mails the doctor a three month supply."
