That’s where Pfizer RxPathways comes in. We’re here to help clear the path for patients by serving as a single point of access to all of the programs that might be right for them.
From insurance support and co-pay assistance* to medicines for free or at a savings,† Pfizer RxPathways connects patients to a range of programs and resources that can help them access the Pfizer medicines they need.
Pfizer Patient Assistance Program
Provides free Pfizer medicines to eligible patients through their doctor’s office or at home.
To qualify, patients must:
- Have a valid prescription for the Pfizer medicine for which they are seeking assistance
- Have no prescription coverage, or not enough coverage, to pay for their Pfizer medicine
- Reside in the U.S. or a U.S. territory
- Meet income guidelines, which vary by medicine, but start at 400% of the Federal Poverty Level, adjusted for family size
- Be treated by a healthcare provider licensed in the U.S. or a U.S. territory
To be evaluated for assistance, patients and their healthcare providers must submit a completed enrollment form. Patients must also provide proof of income, such as a W2 form, a paycheck stub, or prior year’s tax return. In some cases, patients prescribed certain Pfizer medicines may first be required to seek alternate forms of assistance before they can be considered for free medicine through the Pfizer Patient Assistance Program.
