To avail, a person needs to enroll in the "AZ&Me Prescription Savings" program by calling the hotline number listed on the official AstraZeneca website. Patients who have no health insurance, those in Medicare Part D, and people who are in dire financial straits are qualified to join this program for free for one year but have to re-apply and re-qualify after one year. Only certain medicines are offered under these programs but medicines are mailed free to the patient's home or physician's clinic or office. The patient or the healthcare provider can then request for refills. AstraZeneca even extends further patient assistance to people who did not originally buy AstraZeneca medicines through its membership in a multi-manufacturer program called the Partnership for Prescription Assistance.
