AstraZeneca (@AstraZenecaUS) will host a one-hour chat on Twitter at 8 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, February 16 to raise awareness about helping patients save money through prescription savings programs.
The chat will be led by Jennifer McGovern, the director of the AZ&Me prescription savings programs. She will answer questions while offering ideas about how patient assistance needs are evolving and how social media can be used to reach eligibile patients.
AstraZeneca provides free medicines to eligible patients through its AZ&Me prescription savings programs. Over the last three years, patients saved a total of $2.3 billion on 10.6 million prescriptions since the economic downturn took hold in 2008.
To learn if you or someone you know are eligible for the AZ&Me savings programs, click here or call 1-800-AZandMe (292-6363).
Update: There has been considerable interest in the chat and a few questions about what we will be able to discuss about medicines and diseases, given regulations and the 140-character limit on Twitter.
We recognize those constraints and will therefore have to limit our engagement on prescription savings programs and how we can better reach patients in need.
For those with questions about medicines, please contact us here.
