Prescription savings programs
Since 1978, AstraZeneca has been helping those who cannot afford their medications through three prescription savings programs. In 2012, we provided more than $1.12 billion in savings to more than 562,000 patients in the United States through our savings programs.
Our programs target patients at individual income levels of up to $35,000, couples earning up to $48,000, and families of four earning up to $70,000. These income levels reflect new increases which took effect in January 2012 to enable more patients to access the programs.
AstraZeneca prescription savings encompass three programs:
- AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for people without insurance
AstraZeneca provides medicines at no cost to qualifying individuals without prescription drug coverage who make up to $35,000 per year, as well as families of four with up to a $70,000 annual household income.
- AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for health care facilities
AstraZeneca provides medicines at no cost to qualifying nonprofit organizations, such as community health centers, community free clinics, charitable pharmacies and hospitals that treat significant populations of low-income patients through the Disproportionate Share Hospital program. This prescription savings program connects patients to the medicines they need at the time and place they receive their treatment.
- AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for people with Medicare Part D
AstraZeneca provides medicines at no cost to qualifying individuals with Medicare Part D who are still having difficulty affording their medicines. Enrolled patients are able to have their AstraZeneca medicine mailed to their home or physician’s office.
