About

NeedyMeds was started in 1997 by Richard J. Sagall, MD, a family physician, and Libby Overly, MSW, MEd, a medical social worker. Both realized there was a need for a centralized resource for information on pharmaceutical patient assistance programs. With the Internet becoming an important source of information, they decided that was the perfect medium for this ever-changing information.

As our organization has continued to grow we wanted to find a way to communicate directly with our users and answer any and all healthcare questions they may have.  In 2018 we launched Ask NeedyMeds.  Do you have a question for us?
