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 TM 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 up to a 90 day supply of 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).
If approved, a three-month supply of the medication is sent directly to the patient's home or other designated location with the exception of Seroquel, Faslodex, and Zoladex from the Program mail-order fulfillment pharmacy. Refills can be requested by the patient or prescribing physician. With the shipment, patient receives instructions on how to request next supply of medication.
