friendshelpingfriends started this conversation

Helping you get the medicines you need.

The AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for people without insurance is designed to provide AstraZeneca medicines at no cost to qualified patients. This patient prescription assistance program can help patients who do not have prescription drug coverage and who meet other eligibility criteria.

Highlights

  • AstraZeneca medicines provided at no cost
  • There is NO cost to sign up for the program
  • Once accepted, you remain enrolled for up to one year. At the end of that year you can reapply.
  • Mailed to the home or physician’s office
  • You or your doctor can request refills.
  • Review the list of medicines available through this program.
  • Convenient online self-service tool to enroll, re-enroll, check enrollment or shipment status or to request a refill

Are you eligible?

You may be eligible if you meet the following criteria:

  • You have an annual household income* at or below:
    $30,000 for a single person
    $40,000 for a family of two
    $50,000 for a family of three
    $60,000 for a family of four
    $70,000 for a family of five
    * Income limits might be higher in Alaska and Hawaii.
  • You do not receive prescription drug coverage under any private insurance or any other coverage that provides assistance to help pay for medicines, such as:
    • Employer furnished or private prescription drug coverage
    • VA or Military Benefits
    • Medicaid
    • Medicare Part A
    • Medicare Part B (covers some injectable medicines)
    • Medicare Part D*
    • State assistance program for medicines (SPAP, SCHIP, PACE, etc.)
      * Individuals enrolled in Medicare Part D may be eligible for the AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for people with Medicare Part D

What if you are enrolled in Medicare and Qualify for the Limited Income Subsidy?

Patients who are in Medicare and may be eligible for the Limited Income Subsidy (“LIS”) can apply to the AZ&Me™ Prescription Savings program for people without insurance.

  • When you apply to this program, you will receive information and one-on-one education designed to help with the LIS application process.
  • During the processing of your LIS application, you may be temporarily enrolled in the AZ&Me Prescription Savings Program. This means you could receive your AstraZeneca medicine(s) from the Program while you wait for your LIS application results.
  • Once the Social Security Administration confirms that you have qualified for the LIS, you are no longer eligible for the AZ&Me Prescription Savings program because you will have access to affordable, comprehensive coverage. You will no longer receive AstraZeneca medicines through the AZ&Me Prescription Savings Program.
  • If the Social Security Administration denies your application for LIS, our assistance specialists can help you complete the enrollment process for the AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people without insurance, so you can continue receiving your AstraZeneca medicine(s).  

What if you do not qualify for the Limited Income Subsidy and are not enrolled in Medicare Part D?

  • You may apply to the AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people without insurance and get one-on-one support to help you identify and access health and prescription drug coverage and services for which you may qualify.
  • If you have not enrolled in a Medicare Part D plan, and if you meet the other eligibility criteria, you may be eligible for the AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for people without insurance.
