Spina Bifida

The Spina Bifida Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide information on Spina Bifida and to help those with Spina Bifida find assistance paying for their medications.

According to the National Institutes of Health, Spina Bifida is a neural tube defect (a disorder involving development of the brain, spinal cord, and/or their protective coverings) caused by the failure of the fetus's spine to close properly during the first month of pregnancy.

Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) are programs offered by pharmaceutical companies to help those most in need gain access to their medications at no or low cost. Each program has varying financial and insurance guidelines - when in doubt, call the program. To find the specific PAP information for a specific drug click on the list below. You will then be taken to a listing of all the programs available for that medication.

NeedyMeds neither promotes nor endorses the therapies listed below nor the supporters of this page. This page is for educational purposes only.
