When you can't afford your Behcet's meds

A quick post for today:

If you qualify, there are some patient assistance websites that can help you pay for some of the expensive meds used to treat Behcet's.

Start your search here: The Partnership for Prescription Assistance.
It offers a single point of access to more than 475 public and private patient assistance programs, including more than 180 programs offered by pharmaceutical companies.

You can also try the American College of Rheumatology's list of pharmaceutical companies offering patient assistance programs for specific (expensive) drugs like Enbrel, Remicade, Humira, etc. Access the list here: http://www.rheumatology.org/public/acrast.asp?aud=pat
