ACPM Health Disparities &
Patient Assistance Program Initiative
ACPM, with support from Pfizer Helpful Answers and AstraZeneca, AZ&Me, has announced an educational campaign to address the more than 50 million uninsured or under-insured Americans who do not have access to needed prescription medications.
The campaign will feature a national educational webinar as well as a state-based briefing that will serve as a pilot for potential programs in other states. To help patients who lack prescription drug coverage get access to the medicines they need, many pharmaceutical companies offer patient assistance programs. Because many patients – and even many physicians – are unaware that this help may be available, ACPM is working to promote the public health benefits of these important prescription assistance programs, with the goal of reducing the risks of disease, disability and death among under-served populations.
