Financial Support Options

Bristol-Myers Squibb is dedicated to providing support to patients and their caregivers throughout the treatment journey. One way we help is by offering financial support information for patients who have insurance or may be uninsured.

Choose Your Health Insurance Type I don't know

I have Commercial
Insurance

My health insurance is covered by my employer OR I independently purchased it

I have insurance through a Federal Program

I am on a program such as Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE

What help is available to me?

Federal Healthcare Programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE, will cover part of your medication costs. In some cases, you will have to pay for the rest. If you have government insurance, you are not eligible for co-pay assistance programs sponsored by BMS. However, there are independent charitable foundations that may be able to help. What is a federal program?

Working through BMS Access Support®, your doctor's office may be able to refer you to charitable foundations offering support for you. He or she can also help you with the application process—or call BMS Access Support at 1-800-861-0048 for details.

No, I don’t currently have prescription drug insurance

What other options are
available to me?

If you don’t have insurance, we may be able to help you.

Affordable Care Act Plans

New health plans available under the Affordable Care Act may be able to help pay for your healthcare, including prescription medications.

Get helpful information regarding potential options by calling 1-800-861-0048 and talking to a Care Coordinator.

Charitable Foundations

BMS Access Support® can make a referral to independent charitable foundations that may be able to provide financial support, including the Bristol-Myers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation (BMSPAF).

BMSPAF is a charitable organization that provides free medicine to eligible uninsured patients who have an established financial hardship. To learn more about BMSPAF, click here.

It is important to note that these charitable foundations are independent from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company. Each foundation, including BMSPAF, has its own eligibility criteria and evaluation process.

Bristol-Myers Squibb cannot guarantee that a patient will receive assistance.

For more information, call BMS Access Support at 1-800-861-0048.

There may be support available through the BMS Oncology Co-Pay Assistance Program.

  • Eligible patients would pay a $25 co-pay per infusion or they pay $25 for two BMS products provided in combination on the same day.
  • BMS will cover the remaining amount, up to $25,000 per year per product.

How does it work?

  1. Your doctor's office collects the necessary information.
  2. You and your doctor complete and sign the enrollment form.
  3. BMS Access Support® then determines if you are eligible for coverage and notifies you and your doctor of the result.
