Epilepsy Resources

Wyoming Epilepsy Association knows that we cannot offer all, the education and support needed to completely understand epilepsy. We can provide different websites that can provide the tools, educational resources to help understand epilepsy in different ways. Click on the images to see the websites.

​How and why to record your epileptic seizures.

One of the most important tools a neurologist has for the treatment of epilepsy and other seizure disorders can only be provided by the patient: a record of seizure activity in day-to-day life.
Seizure diaries, as they are often called, are a way for physicians to get an idea of how many seizures a patient is having between office visits. Depending on how detailed the diary is, it may also give insight into a patient’s seizure triggers and medication side effects.

Medication Assistance Programs

These programs require certain requirements to qualify for assistance, please click the images to visit their websites.

Wyoming RX Card

This card will provide you with Rx medication savings of up to 75% at more than 56,000 pharmacies across the country including Kmart, Osco, Pamida, Safeway, Albertsons Sav-on, Smith’s, Walgreens, Walmart, and many more. You can create as many cards as you need. We encourage you to give cards to friends and family members. This card is pre-activated and can be used immediately!

RX Assist

Patient assistance programs are run by pharmaceutical companies to provide free medications to people who cannot afford to buy their medicine. RxAssist offers a comprehensive database of these patient assistance programs, as well as practical tools, news, and articles so that health care professionals and patients can find the information they need. All in one place.

Pfizer RX Pathways

If you are one of the more than 50 million Americans in the United States who have no health insurance, you are not alone. Pfizer Helpful Answer is a family of assistance programs for people who have no insurance, or who do not have enough insurance and need help getting their Pfizer medicines.

GSK for You

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) believes people who don’t have prescription drug coverage should be able to get the medicines they need. If you don’t have prescription drug coverage, there may be ways to save on your prescription medicines. GSK patient assistance programs provided medicines valued at almost $388 million (Wholesale Acquisition Cost) to more than 484,000 patients in 2007. “GSK For You” features information on patient assistance programs from other resources, too.

Wyoming Medication Donation Program

The Wyoming Medication Donation Program (WMDP) reduces medication waste and improves medication access for low-income Wyoming residents who lack adequate prescription drug insurance coverage. WMDP’s central location acts as a mail-order pharmacy that uses donated medications to fill prescriptions for eligible patients at no cost to recipients. This location also processes all incoming donations and performs safe medication disposal to reduce drug diversion while positively impacting the environment.

Patient Assistance Now

Novartis Helps Patients Access the Medicines and the Information They Need to Understand and Manage Their Conditions NOW. At Novartis, we are committed to making medicines, as well as improving access to them. We recognize that many patients today face obstacles that keep them from getting the Novartis medicines they need. We also recognize that in this current economic environment and the many changes taking place in healthcare today, Americans may need more information about their disease or condition, as well as information on programs that can help them pay for their medication. We understand these challenges and want to lend a helping hand.

Needy Meds

NeedyMeds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit information resource devoted to helping people in need find assistance programs to help them afford their medications and costs related to health care. The mission of NeedyMeds is to make information about assistance programs available to low-income patients and their advocates at no cost. The NeedyMeds website is the face of the organization. Databases such as Patient Assistance Programs, disease-based Assistance, Free and Low- Clinics, government programs, and other types of assistance programs are the crux of the free information offered online.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) and subsequent regulations require coordination between CMS, State programs, insurers, employers, and all other payers of prescription drug benefits to ensure that the prescription drug benefits provided to Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare Part D are maximized and the integrity of the Medicare program is assured. CMS has implemented data exchanges with Prescription Drug Assistance Programs including State Pharmaceutical Assistance Programs (SPAPs), AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs), and Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) to coordinate Medicare Part D prescription drug benefits with other coverage a Medicare beneficiary may have. This allows CMS to facilitate accurate claims payment and the calculation of the Medicare Part D True Out of Pocket (TrOOP) expenses incurred by Medicare beneficiaries.

Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) rules related to the Part D benefit can be found in § 1860D-2(a) (4) of the MMA.  Refer to the Related Links section near the bottom of the page for a link where additional information regarding Prescription Drug Coverage may be found.
