AstraZeneca is promoting its AZ&Me Rx savings program. The program helps people with imited incomes who are enrolled in a Medicare drug plan but are having difficulty affording their medicines. Patients can sign up quickly and obtain conditional approval immediately. Prescriptions can be filled at their local pharmacy the same day. This program also enables R.Ph.s to continue to interact with patients, ensuring effective management of their medication therapy. Patients may enroll by calling 1-(800) 292-6363 or may visit http://www.AZandME.com/ for additional information. The program has a flat patient fee of either $15 or $25-depending on the patient's annual household income-for a typical 30-day prescription.
