GSK Patient Assistance Program for Prescription Medicines

This program can help you receive certain GSK prescription medicines at no cost.

You might be eligible for this program if:

  • You are uninsured
  • You have Medicare and meet other program requirements
  • Live in the United States or Puerto Rico (or the US Virgin Islands for certain medicines)
  • Meet financial income eligibility criteria

Patients enrolled in an Alternate Funding Program are not eligible for GSK PAP enrollment.

What is an Alternate Funding Program?

Certain health insurance providers, often through a third-party vendor, implement Alternate Funding Programs, that attempt to utilize charitable patient assistance programs to divert resources intended for uninsured patients instead of providing coverage for certain medicines. These insurance providers deny insurance coverage for selected medications and, instead, require that the patient apply to charitable patient assistance programs despite being enrolled in a health insurance plan. When the patient is approved for the patient assistance program, the expense of the medication shifts from the health insurance provider to the charitable organization. Both the health insurance provider and the third-party vendor profit from these programs, also referred to as Specialty Carve-Outs.
