Ohio Prescription Discount Now for All Ohioans. And Other Ways to Get Prescription Drugs if You Aren't Insured

Ohio's Best Rx plan, a prescription discount plan once reserved for those 65 and over or the disabled, is not extended to everybody.  There are additional discounts for those making less than 300% of the poverty level.  This is NOT drug insurance, merely a discount, but if you are uninsured or underinsured, you can put in your zip code and the name of your medicine, and get a cost, and see if it's worth your while. 

For people with low to moderate incomes and no insurance, some pharmaceutical companies have their own programs that may make prescription drugs within reach.  Rx for Ohio works to make eligible Ohioans aware of programs for free or deeply discounted drugs, and give them the tools to make those contacts.  Just click on this page and start.  Input the name of your drug, answer 10 questions to determine your eligibility, and if you qualify for any program, they will link you to the applications that you can print out. 

If you're from anywhere else in the U.S., try the Partnership for Prescription Assistance.  It is a nationwide  program that makes people aware of prescription drug programs from manufacturers.  You can check out their webpage, or call 1-888-477-2669 for more information.
