PAP 101

(Patient Assistance Program)

Many mental health issues are caused by chemical imbalances within the human body. To re-establish the correct balance, medications are commonly used; often in conjunction with other therapies.

However, if your doctor prescribes medication and you don’t have insurance you may find you need assistance to afford your medications. A number of pharmaceutical companies have Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) that provide their brand name medications reduced or free of cost.

SMA Healthcare may be able to offer assistance with medications via PAP.  If you are located within SMA’s six county service area (Volusia, Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns, Marion, Citrus), please reach out to their Access Center 24/7 at 800-539-4228.
