NeedyMeds.org and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America announce a new source of information on medications used for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and the financial help available for those living with these diseases.
(Vocus) August 13, 2009 — NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, added a new resource page to its Web site tailored for those with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The page is a Crohn’s disease and colitis-specific source of help for those looking for information on these diseases and financial resources to help assist with the cost of medications.
The resource page, created in collaboration with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, provides information on these diseases including facts, research, and more. Links to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America and its chapters, programs and services are included on the resource page. In addition, the page lists financial resources that help with the cost of the drugs used to treat Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, free clinics, and programs that provide other types of financial assistance.
NeedyMeds has the most comprehensive and reliable database of patient assistance programs available. All the information is free, easy to access, and updated regularly. There is no registration process or need for users to enter any personal information.
The collaboration between NeedyMeds and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America was created to reach a larger group of people needing support and assistance in a time of shrinking resources. Both organizations are committed to serving those in need.
