A new free iPhone App from the PPA (Partnership for Prescription Assistance) provides a quick and simple way to locate free or reduced price clinics near your location, using the iPhone’s GPS feature. It will also provide information regarding subsidy plans for certain prescription drugs. For those who don’t have an iPhone, the app seems to just be a wrapper for the PPA website, which has the same information available.
From the app description:
With this application, patients can scroll through the medicines offered by PPA member programs or locate one of 10,000 free health care clinics across the United States. They can also learn more about the Partnership for Prescription Assistance and email or text a friend about the program. To get further assistance, they can contact PPA’s call center directly through the application.
