Program Designed To Help East Texans Pay For Prescriptions

It's called Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA). If you have low or modest income, are uninsured or under-insured, you may qualify. Colleen Thurman is a mother of two and full-time student. She says PPA helped her buy prescriptions to treat her post-pardum depression. "I don't have to worry about when I'm going to get my medication, where I'm going to get my medication how I'm going to afford it. I can focus on my children, my education and my family," says Colleen. "The frustrating thing is we know that there are tens of thousands of other people in Texas and millions nationwide who also qualify for the program but don't know about them and don't know how to access them," says Jeff Trewhitt with Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers America.
