Prescription drugs play a crucial role in improving the health and well-being of individuals. However, the high cost of medications can be a significant barrier for many patients to access the treatments they need. AbbVie, a leading pharmaceutical company, understands the importance of ensuring patients can afford and access the medicines prescribed to them. In this article, we will explore the various patient assistance and support programs offered by AbbVie.

AbbVie’s Patient Assistance Programs

AbbVie’s patient assistance programs are designed to provide free AbbVie medicines to qualifying patients who reside in the United States and have limited or no health insurance coverage. These programs are aimed at individuals who demonstrate a qualifying financial need. In 2022 alone, AbbVie assisted nearly 200,000 people through these programs, ensuring that they could receive the medications they require without the burden of high costs.

Eligibility Criteria for myAbbVie Assist

To be eligible for AbbVie’s myAbbVie Assist program, patients must meet certain criteria:

  • Patients must be receiving treatment from a licensed U.S. healthcare provider on an outpatient basis and be prescribed an AbbVie medicine that is included in the assistance program
  • Patients should have limited or no health insurance coverage. The program aims to support individuals who face financial difficulties accessing necessary medications due to insufficient insurance coverage
  • Patients must demonstrate a qualifying financial need. AbbVie has specific income criteria that determine eligibility for their assistance programs, ensuring that those who genuinely require financial support receive it
  • The myAbbVie Assist program is available to individuals who reside in the United States

It is important to note that patients with commercial insurance plans that require them to apply for myAbbVie Assist as a condition for coverage are not eligible for the program.
