What Bristol Meyers Squibb Patient Assistance Is Available?
Bristol Myers Squibb offers patients temporary help with the cost of prescriptions through its nonprofit Bristol Meyers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation. Eligible cancer patients may be able to get some help through the Bristol Meyers Squibb Oncology Co-Pay Assistance Program.
The medications for which assistance is available to eligible individuals include (but are not limited to):
- Eliquis (an anticoagulant that reduces the risk of stroke and blood clots)
- Empliciti (used in the treatment of multiple myeloma)
- Nulojix (administered by IV infusion to prevent rejection of transplanted kidneys)
- Opdivo and Yervoy (commonly prescribed together for the treatment of certain cancers)
- Orencia (prescribed to reduce symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis)
What does Simplefill Provide?
There’s no need for anyone to sacrifice other necessities because of the high cost of their medication. Simplefill’s mission is to help Americans who are struggling to pay for the medications they take regularly to manage chronic diseases that require long-term treatment.
We do this by connecting people who need assistance with the programs and organizations that are offering it. Often, people who need patient assistance aren’t even aware that it’s available or that they could be eligible for it.
How does Bristol Meyers Squibb Patient Assistance Work?
To be eligible for help from the Bristol Meyers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation, you must:
