Assistance for Patients without Prescription Drug Coverage or Who Are Underinsured

 

For patients without prescription drug insurance or for patients who are underinsured, BMS Access Support can refer you to independent charitable foundations that may be able to help. These include the Bristol-Myers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation, a charitable organization that provides medicine, free of charge, to eligible, uninsured patients who have an established financial hardship. The Bristol-Myers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation (BMSPAF) accepts the BMS Access Support application.For more information, you can visit bmspaf.org.

Patients may be eligible for BMSPAF if they:
  1. Do not have insurance coverage, or have been denied coverage for a requested medicine
  2. Are enrolled in a Medicare Part D plan and have spent at least 3% of their yearly income on out-of-pocket costs for prescription medicines in the current year
  3. Are being treated on an outpatient basis
  4. Live in the United States, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands
  5. Meet the income limits for the requested medicine
  6. Other eligibility criteria apply

It is important to note that these foundations are independent from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. Each foundation, including the BMSPAF, has its own eligibility criteria and evaluation process. Bristol-Myers Squibb cannot guarantee that a patient will receive assistance.
