Last spring I told you about Pfizer’s prescription drug program to help the unemployed. It was slated to expire December 31, 2009, but has been extended through the end of 2010. This program offers up to a one-year supply of participating prescriptions to the unemployed and their immediate family members who:
— Have become unemployed since January 1, 2009, and
— Were prescribed and have been taking a Pfizer medicine for at least 3 months prior to becoming unemployed and enrolling in the program, and
— Have no prescription coverage
You must complete an application (application forms available on Pfizer’s website) and if approved into the program you’ll receive a 90-day supply of your medication sent directly to your home. The medication will be refilled up to one year, or until you becomes insured, when the patient requests it by calling 1-866-578-4995. Looks like at least 35 different medications are covered in this program.
To apply for this program do the following:
— Submit the application along with proof of unemployment to Pfizer
It takes 2-3 weeks for them to determine your eligibility for the Pfizer MAINTAIN program. Check out Pfizer’s website for complete details or call their customer service department at 1-866-706-2400.
Your turn: Do you know of other deals and offers available exclusively for the unemployed?
