A man suffering from seizures called 2-1-1 because he couldn't afford his anti-seizure medication. After interviewing the man, it was discovered that he needed help with monthly budgeting. It was determined that the man could eliminate some discretionary spending and have adequate funds to purchase his medication. He was also given referrals to a financial literacy program to ensure he gained the skills and discipline to better budget his funding.
