Alliance for Pharmaceutical Access (APA) is a nonprofit organization that provides linkages to Pharmaceutical companies that offer medications to community members who meet their qualifications. The APA highly trained compassionate advocates assist community members through the application process by providing individualized services, at no cost.
Since 2004, APA has been working diligently with its physician, hospital, and business partners to close the inequity gaps in medication access for the medically insured/underserved. Let us help you navigate the process.

Our approach to assisting you with medication advocacy involves organization, computer assistance, follow-up phone calls and confidentiality.
Access to life-saving treatments through PAPShare
You can find your medication through a Patient Assistance Program (PAP). PAPs are created by pharmaceutical companies to provide free or discounted medications to people who are unable to afford them. Each program has its own qualifying criteria.

How do we do this?
By accessing medication through patient assistance programs, often they are free or special pricing. APA is the link between those in need and the patient assistance programs.
If a client needs specialty or brand name medications, we help you enroll in the Patient Assistance Programs; if you qualify for Medi-Cal we refer you to the nearest social services office or certified enrollment counselor; if you are commercially insured, or have Medicare or Medi-Cal but are unable to afford the out of pocket expenses for your medications, we seek co-payment assistance programs, and on-line assistance or on-line discounted medications. In 2016 APA started a program which offers discounted diabetes testing supplies to qualifying individuals.
Whom Do We Serve?
Any person who needs access to free and/or discounted medications and who has a valid prescription form their physician.
