Paying for prescription drugs has long been a problem for many people. These days it's a bit tougher, but there are ways to keep costs under control.

Pharmacies and stores such as Wal-Mart offer discounts on generic drugs.

There are hundreds of different programs offered by drug companies for those who are struggling or uninsured.

The partnership for prescription assistance is a clearing house for all of them.

You simply fill out an application to determine your eligibility.

It's a safety net for people worried about what would happen if they lost their job and insurance.

The partnership for prescription assistance is a nationwide service and it's free.

It's associated with almost 500-public and private programs.
