I looked it over and what it looks like to me is that they do all the legwork to get you on the drug company's program to provide the medicine at low, or no, cost. All the pharma companies have them. I know how to dig for this stuff so enjoy your beer and I'll get ya the info. Eliquis is made by Pfizer. They have a Patient Assistance Program. https://www.pfizerrxpathways.com/ There is also a video on that page that explains what kind of help they offer and how to apply for it. You click on the right, "Do you need help..." and then type in the name of your drug, (which I did) The next screen you get has the following info: "Results: Your Path to Assistance Based on the information you provided, you may be eligible for these programs. The programs listed in blue appear to be your best match based on your individual needs and circumstances. All other Pfizer and non-Pfizer programs that may be able to help you access your medicine are listed below your best match in gray." This was the only program in blue, on the list. Weren't any gray ones. "Bristol-Myers Squibb Patient Assistance Foundation, Inc. This independent, nonprofit organization provides assistance to qualifying patients with financial hardship who generally have no prescription insurance. Call 1-800-736-0003 Visit Site" That Visit Site link takes you here: https://www.bmspaf.org/#home They're non-profit and those generally move quickly and do what they can knowing that people are not always up to snuff and that this stuff is unbelievably stressful and confusing. I'm pretty sure they'll get you what you need. Check your PM's.
