Takeda Pharmaceutical Company issued the following announcement on June 15.
Takeda today announced its U.S. Business Unit will further expand its patient assistance program to help more patients access their medications.
Help At Hand provides assistance for people to access their prescribed medications after all other options have failed to meet their needs. Under the expanded program, Takeda will allow individuals with incomes at 500 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) to apply for its free medicine program which offers 11 currently marketed prescription drugs from Takeda for free to qualifying patients.
“Ensuring patients have access to the medicines they need is a top priority for Takeda. We recognize that some patients continue to face real challenges in affording their medicines,” said Amanda Valyer, Sr. Patient Assistance and Operations Manager, Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc. “By broadening the eligibility criteria for our patient assistance program, we can support many more patients.”
Formerly offered at 400 percent of the FPL, this expansion will mean an individual with an income at or below $60,700, or a family of four with a household income of about $125,500 may qualify for its free prescription drug program.
