What Takeda Patient Assistance Is Available?
Takeda offers its Help at Hand program for U.S. residents who are commercially insured but have lost their job due to Covid-19 and are experiencing financial difficulties. If approved for the Help at Hand program, you may receive your Takeda medication(s) free of charge for six months.
Uninsured and underinsured patients may be eligible for help from the Takeda Patient Assistance Program if they reside in the U.S. and their household income does not exceed five times the Federal Poverty Level.
Medications for which Takeda patient assistance is available include:
- Carbatrol (an anticonvulsant used in the treatment of seizure disorders)
- Colcrys (prescribed for the prevention and treatments of gout attacks)
- Intunive (used to treat DHD in children aged 6 to 17)
- Kazano (a combination medication prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes)
- Lialda (prescribed for patients with ulcerative colitis)
- Prevacid Solutab (a prescription antacid used in the treatment of acid reflux and ulcers)
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill’s mission is to take the financial stress out of living with a chronic disease requiring an uninterrupted supply of costly medication. We not only raise awareness of patient assistance programs like those offered by Takeda; we also bridge the gap between such programs and the people who need them.
How Does Takeda Patient Assistance Work?
The eligibility requirements for Takeda’s Patient Assistance Program are:
- Residing in the United States
- Having no insurance coverage or inadequate coverage
- Having no access to alternate sources of prescription coverage
- Having a household income that’s less than 500% of the Federal Poverty Level for a household of the same size
Patients applying for assistance from the Help at Hand program must be able to provide proof of job termination or unemployment.
