The "Help is Here" bus made its' way to Flint, Michigan on Thursday, July 23. The program was launched by a non-profit trade organization Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). "The PPA bus tours have logged more than 350,000 miles in at least 2,500 towns and cities in all 50 states, and have served more than 200,000 patients in Michigan and almost six million nationwide." The program was founded to help those uninsured and needing pharmaceutical aid. The bus rounds cities with counselors aboard. Those counselors spend around 15 minutes with each case, determining if they are eligible for assistance with pharmaceutical programs. "We are reaching out to the uninsured and those struggling financially to make sure they get the help they need," said spokesman Jeff Trewhitt. Each day, more and more people and programs are finding new ways to help those without health insurance. Anyone can help by rating health care and giving advice on WhereToFindCare.com.
