How does it work?
We will complete one application for each medication that you're currently taking. The application needs to be signed by you and your physician. The applications are then sent to pharmaceutical companies. Once the application had been reviewed and approved, the medication will be shipped out. In most cases, the medication is sent to your physician’s office. A few companies send the medications directly to your home.
