Where to Go for Assistance With Medical and Prescription Costs

SAA does not endorse or recommend any medications or products for spondylitis and always advises that you seek the counsel of a physician before initiating any treatment for spondylitis.

Managing the costs associated with spondyloarthritis can be stressful, and for many, a financial burden. Below is a list of assistance programs that can help with the cost of medications, co-pays, and other healthcare needs.

SAA receives no government funding and relies on the generous donations from individuals to create and maintain the programs and services aimed at improving the futures of the 2.7 million Americans affected by spondylitis.
