Everyday too many people face the dilemma of paying for healthcare or paying bills, rent and buying food. What they don’t know is that there may be help for them with their healthcare costs. NeedyMeds is the best single resource for information about these programs. In this presentation, Dr. Sagall will take you on an exploration of all the available types of help and how to best find programs.

Dr. Richard M. Sagall received his medical degree from the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After completing his family practice residency at the Eastern Maine Medical Center, Bangor, ME, he practiced family medicine and occupational medicine there for nearly 20 years. During that time he began NeedyMeds. Dr. Sagall has written articles on assistance programs and occupational medicine topics for a number of publications. He has given presentations on patient assistance programs and occupational medicine throughout the country.
