At AstraZeneca, we believe it's not enough for us to simply make medicines. We want to help the people who need those medicines gain access to them. It's why we've offered patient assistance programs for over 35 years. We're committed to helping people afford their medicines because we care.
Our programs are designed to help qualifying people without insurance, those in Medicare Part D who are still having trouble affording their AstraZeneca medications. We have two programs that may help you:
- AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people without insurance
- AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people with Medicare Part D
This website is focused on our programs for people without insurance and people with Medicare Part D.
IMPORTANT PROGRAM UPDATE:
Please note that there has been a change to the eligibility requirements for the AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for people with Medicare Part D. Beginning in 2017, in addition to meeting current eligibility criteria patients will also be required to spend 3% of total household income on prescription medicines through a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan during 2017 in order to qualify for the program.
Medicare Part D patients will be required to submit a copy of their Medicare Part D prescription drug plan statement (Explanation of Benefits – EOB), pharmacy receipts or a summary document from a pharmacy indicating total spend on prescriptions in 2017; this total should be at least 3% of household income.
For questions regarding this change, please call 1-800-292-6363.
How it Works
There is a shared application process for the AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people without insurance and the AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people with Medicare Part D, and the same application is used for both programs. There are a few ways you can apply for our programs. You can choose to use the downloadable PDF and mail or have your doctor’s office fax a hard copy of the application to us, or you can call us directly and we will walk you through the process. Once we determine if you are eligible, we’ll contact you to let you know your status. If you are accepted into one of the programs, your medicine(s) will be shipped to either your home or, in some cases, your doctor’s office.
What to Expect
We want to work with you to make the process as smooth as possible. In order to do that, this website has a pre-screening process that asks you some basic questions about your health insurance, residency status, household income and the medication(s) you take. If you meet the basic criteria, you will be prompted to complete the application and advised to provide the documentation needed to complete the application process. It’s free to apply, and if you’re accepted into the program, you’ll be enrolled for up to one year with an option to re-enroll annually if you are still eligible at the end of that year. Once enrolled, up to a 90-day supply of your medication(s) (the quantity is determined by the doctor’s prescription) will be sent to you in the mail or, in some cases, to your doctor’s office. And, when it’s time for a refill, either you or your doctor can make that request. If you still have questions, please take a few minutes to read over our Frequently Asked Questions page or call us at 1-800-AZandMe
