Financial Assistance for an unemployed and underinsured patient for fentanyl patches

I am searching out any possibilities for financial assistance for a patient with multiple nonunion compression fractures of mutliple thoracic vertebra the worst being T6.  His care includes Fentanyl 100mcg/hr patches being changed every other day.  His insurance has lapsed and the pain in unbearable.   What financial assistance is out there for this patient?   I need any and all leads as it is imperative that he get contunuance of his relief as his family has sacrificed everything.  Many Thanks,Dr. Charles Wright

Same as above.  The pharm companies give it out for free if you qualify. My friend gets her like this all the time.
