Drug Savings

NPC's mission is your health. We recognize your need for help when you are applying for discount programs for your prescription medications. We consist of friendly and experienced advocates that not only know how these free and discount programs work, but are ready to help. We are available to take your call and answer any questions you may have as you search for the right program to fit your needs. We can also explain any supporting material you may need to provide as you apply for these programs. If for any reason you are denied, we also are experienced in the best appeals process with a high success rate.


Nationwide Prescription Connection (NPC) is an experienced advocacy service that helps connect patients to manufacturer provided free and discount programs. We can help the uninsured, under insured, those in the Medicare gap also known as the "doughnut hole", or even those needing help with expensive co-pays.  Our web site makes it easy for you to enter the medications you are taking, along with some basic patient information, and then finds the program that is right for you.


Treats Disease/Condition

Uses

Our flagship product, ARESTIN® (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1 mg, is indicated as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP) procedures for reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis. Clinical studies show that ARESTIN® plus SRP achieves greater pocket depth reduction than SRP alone. Using advanced microsphere technology, ® provides sustained release of minocycline, a broad-spectrum antibiotic that targets infection. Currently, ARESTIN® is the leading locally administered antibiotic (LAA) for the treatment of periodontitis.
