Committed to Providing Access for Patients

Astellas Pharma US offers a patient assistance program - the Astellas Access Program - to help eligible patients in need to access the company's medications at no cost. In 2008 alone, Astellas provided drug assistance to more than 11,000 uninsured and underinsured patients.

Astellas' support includes providing free medications, distributing these medications free of charge to patients, and administering programs that help patients obtain this assistance. In total, Astellas has contributed nearly $25 million in commercial value to assisting patients in need.

If you would like to learn more about how the Astellas Access Program can help uninsured or underinsured patients access their needed drug therapy, please call Astellas Reimbursement Services (ARS) at 1 (800) 477-6472 to speak with a reimbursement specialist.

  • Physician or case manager's name and contact information (phone number, address, and fax number)
  • Prescription information (how much medication the patient takes each day)
  • Medical and prescription insurance cards
  • Additional information where appropriate concerning the patient's diagnosis and treatment regimen
