AZ&Me prescription savings program helps more patients in 2011

Four years after the economic downturn took hold in 2008, we continue to see a record number of patients filling a record number of prescriptions in our AZ&Me Prescription Savings Programs.

Last year, AstraZeneca provided $1.1 billion in savings to more than 569,000 patients. State-specific information is listed below (click on the state names to see the full news release for each state).

AZ&Me Program Director Jennifer McGovern shares her perspective on program enrollment along with some of the ways AstraZeneca has worked to expand access to the program for both patients and their providers.
