Some frequently asked questions about Patients Assistance programs.
How do patient assistance programs work?
An individual gets an application for the drug company program that has the medicine the patient needs. Information on medication available through patient assistance programs and the company programs offering these drugs may be found on the RxAssist.org. Some but not all, application forms are available on RxAssist.org and can be filled out directly on the computer or printed out.
Some companies programs require that a physician or heath care advocate (someone working in a physician's office or in a clinic) get the form by calling the program. Many times in these cases, the patient assistance program will screen for eligibility before sending out the form. The form that is sent will have a patient specific identification number on it.
After the form is filled out and submitted to the company, the drug company will decide whether the patient is eligible to receive the medication for free. If the patient is eligible, the medication may be sent to the patient's home, the physician's office or a local pharmacy depending on the program. Some, but not all, companies send letters letting patients and/or physicians know whether the patient has been approved for their patient assistance program.
What do I have to do to apply for a patient assistance program? You must follow the directions on the application exactly, answer every question and include any documents the program asks for. Usually, programs will ask about prescription coverage, veteran's status, eligibility for public insurance programs and income and asset information. Companies also may ask for:
- Proof of income, such as federal income tax statements or pay stubs
- Medicaid or insurance denial letters
- A prescription from your doctor
- Patient consent forms that are included with the application.
Most applications will request information about the physician.
Applications may require the signature of the physician, the patient or both.
What does my doctor need to do to help me apply for a patient assistance program?
This depends on the specific patient assistance program. Usually the physician only has to fill out a few brief questions on the application form and/or sign it. The physician may also be asked to:
- Call the program for an application
- Write out a prescription
- Include information about the patient's diagnosis on the application.www.rxassist.org/faqs/default.cfm#5
