Psoriasis

The Psoriasis Resource page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the National Psoriasis Foundation. It is intended to provide information on Psoriasis and to streamline and simplify the way those with Psoriasis may find assistance paying for their medications.

Psoriasis is a chronic, autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth of skin cells. Psoriasis is connected to other serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis also have psoriatic arthritis.

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 and the National Psoriasis Foundation neither promote nor endorse the therapies listed below nor the supporters of this page. This page is for educational purposes only.
