Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) for Pharmaceutical Companies

Customized patient assistance programs for pharmaceutical companies make drugs more affordable for patients with limited prescription drug benefits.

Therapies can be expensive and unaffordable for patients with limited prescription drug benefits. McKesson Specialty Health’s expertise in developing and administering custom patient assistance programs (PAP), which range in size from a single drug to more than 100 drugs, can help biopharma and life science companies provide free or reduced-cost drugs to patients who can benefit from these programs.


Customized Patient Assistance Programs include:

  • Exhaustive searches of alternative funding sources, including copay and sampling programs
  • Patient- and provider-driven models for enrollment and fulfillment
  • Integrated reimbursement services
  • Multiple options for product distribution
  • Multi-media communication channels (e.g., web, SMS, fax, phone, mail) that cater to individual communication preferences
  • Wide variety of communication campaigns to support policy changes and updates (i.e., Medicare Part D)
