Eli Lilly patient assistance programs can help patients save money on their Eli Lilly prescription medications. Like most pharmaceutical manufacturers, Eli Lilly and Company offers several patient assistance programs (or PAPs for short) to qualified patients. The programs offer low-cost and free prescription drugs. In order to be eligible for most Eli Lilly programs, patients must be United States residents, meet specific income requirements, and have no other prescription drug coverage. However, in some cases patients with Medicare or other policies may be considered for assistance.[1]
