Delivering Hope to Millions of Patients in Need

Our mission is to increase awareness of patient assistance programs and boost enrollment of eligible individuals. We offer a single point of access to more than 475 public and private programs, including about 200 programs offered by biopharmaceutical companies. We’ve helped millions of Americans to get prescription drugs for free or at very low cost.

PPA is a Free Service

Other companies may offer to connect consumers to these same assistance programs for a fee – some of which may use our name without our permission. The Partnership for Prescription Assistance will help you find the program that’s right for you, free of charge. We will never ask for payment information.

Wellness coaching is a form of life coaching that deals with overall health and wellbeing. Wellness coaches are accountability partners who can help their clients clarify and then achieve their physical and emotional health goals. Wellness coaches do not treat or diagnose. Wellness coaching can be available in small groups or individually over the phone. “We support others who have fibromyalgia and we understand it,” said Tammy Santi, who is honored to be a part of the NFA. Tammy’s company is happy to arrange two personal coaching sessions to NFA members only. These will be used to help assess your needs, set your goals and move towards managing your health.

Tammy came up with the name Arpeggio as an arpeggio is a beautiful sounding musical chord. Learning to play an arpeggio takes much practice, which can be the same in life. Life has many ups and downs, but with practice and learning from life lessons, life can be beautiful. Individuals with chronic pain ailments, such as fibromyalgia, are very familiar with the ups and downs of having good days and bad days. Tammy can help you with support and finding life balance.
