Assistance for Patients with Federally-Funded Insurance Plans

Patients with federally-funded insurance plans are not eligible for co-pay assistance programs sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb. However, there are independent foundations that can help. Access Support can refer you to the foundation offering the best support for your specific patient and help you through the application process.

It is important to note that these foundations are independent and not affiliated with Bristol-Myers Squibb. Each foundation has its own eligibility criteria and evaluation process. Bristol-Myers Squibb cannot guarantee that a patient will receive assistance.

Assistance for Uninsured Patients

  • For patients without prescription drug insurance, Access Support can refer you to independent charitable foundations that may be able to provide financial support, including, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation, a charitable organization that provides medicine, free of charge, to eligible, uninsured patients who have an established financial hardship. The Bristol-Myers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation accepts the Access Support application. For more information, you can visit bmspaf.org.

It is important to note that these charitable foundations are independent from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company.
