At Good Days our mission is to ensure no one has to choose between getting the medication they need and affording the necessities of everyday living. Good Days provides financial support for patients who cannot afford the medication they urgently need. Through Good Days' Premium Assistance program, we help patients find the insurance coverage that's right for them. Good Days realizes that a patient's struggle can go beyond simply having access to their medication. For some, it's access to care in general. We are proud to provide financial and logistical support to patients with such needs to ensure they are compliant with their treatment regimen. Through our innovative approach to implementing advanced systems and strategies, Good Days has virtually redefined the way pharmacies and physicians connect with patients.
