Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) help patients who have difficulty paying for prescription medications.

State governments, charitable organizations, and drug companies offer PAP programs that provide discounted or free medications to people who financially and medically qualify; some also help file appeals to insurance companies who deny coverage for certain medications.

Nearly every drug company has a PAP (mostly for the products they produce).
