Access to medicines
We are committed to helping patients access our medications, and have a long history of providing a range of programs to help them. We have in place a number of patient assistance programs for patients who do not have insurance, and who meet certain income and eligibility requirements. In 2013, close to 200,000 patients received GSK medicines and vaccines through our US programs, valued at approximately $176 million.
GSK also offers co-pay assistance programs to help eligible patients with limited insurance coverage to have better access to GSK’s oncology and specialty medicines. This co-pay assistance program is for eligible people who have prescription coverage, but who need extra help paying for selected cancer and specialty medicines.
With new insurance options available for patients, GSK remains committed to supporting patient access to our medicines subject to eligibility requirements.
