AstraZeneca to offer free medicines for healthcare facilities
AstraZeneca has launched a new program to provide medicines free to community free clinics, community health centers, and hospitals that serve the uninsured. The AZ&Me Prescription Savings program for healthcare facilities is planning to provide free AstraZeneca medicines to hundreds of thousands of patients at approximately 150 facilities by the end of 2008. The program is available to organizations that have a licensed outpatient pharmacy or dispensary on site and can provide documentation that their facility meets other program criteria. Patients are eligible if they do not have prescription coverage and must have a household income at or below $30,000 for an individual or $60,000 for a family of four. To find out whether your organization could qualify for the program for healthcare facilities, call 1-(866) 325-8198.
