What Gilead Patient Assistance Is Available?
There are two programs available to those who need assistance paying for Gilead medications:
- Gilead Advancing Access Patient Assistance Program, for uninsured patients and certain others that meet the program’s eligibility requirements, and the
- Gilead Advancing Access Co-Pay Coupon Card for patient with commercial insurance who need help paying out-of-pocket costs for Gilead medications.
While the Advancing Access Patient Assistance Program provides qualified individuals with Gilead medications entirely free of charge, the Advancing Access Co-Pay Coupon Card is used in conjunction with the patient’s commercial insurance to cover co-pays. The card cannot be used in conjunction with Medicaid, Medicare, or any other government health insurance plan.

What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill provides a gateway to prescription assistance for people who cannot afford the medications they need to keep their HIV-1/AIDS under control and prevent spreading the virus to others. Having access to such medications can make the difference between living with the virus, often at a level that is undetectable in the blood, and potentially life-threatening disease progression. There is simply too much at stake for money to be the deciding factor. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to raise awareness of the existence of patient assistance programs like Advancing Access and helping people connect with them.

- Have a prescription from a U.S.-licensed health care provider for a Gilead medication covered by the program
