Generic Assistance Program (GAP)

Since the NeedyMeds Generic Assistance Program was wildly successful, we ran out of funds more quickly than expected. We are working diligently to replenish GAP and encourage you to check back regularly to see if it is up and running again. If you would like to partner with us to activate GAP, please donate what you can or send a check to NeedyMeds, PO Box 219, Gloucester, MA 01931. Even a gift of $10 will make a huge impact, providing up to five weeks of free meds for those most in need.

About GAP

The Generic Assistance Program (GAP) is designed to help people unable to afford certain more expensive generic medications. In a collaboration with Rx Outreach, the largest non-profit pharmacy in the country, NeedyMeds launched in October 2014 this first-of-its-kind medication assistance program to provide generic medication at no cost to those who qualify.

The program uses a voucher system and supplies medication for up to one year. Applicants must apply to enroll in the program and reapply annually. Once accepted, coverage is guaranteed for the accepted prescription for one year.

GAP offers over 20 generic medications at no cost to people who meet program eligibility requirements. The guidelines are:

  1. Must have no prescription coverage for needed medication
  2. At or below 200% Federal Poverty Level
  3. Must be a U.S. citizen, legal entrant, or have a work visa

The high demand for medication from GAP depleted the initial start-up funding for the program. We were forced to close the program from June through August 2015 and were been able to re-open it in September 2015 because of the generosity of GAP supporters. However, in order to sustain the program, we need your support. Please help to keep GAP viable by donating to the GAP campaign on HEALfunder.
