If you have been prescribed a Merck medicine, you may be eligible for the program if all three of the following conditions apply:
1. You are a U.S. resident and have a prescription for a Merck medicine from a doctor licensed in the United States.1
2. You do not have insurance or other coverage for your prescription medicine. Some examples of other insurance coverage include private insurance, HMOs, Medicaid, Medicare, state pharmacy-assistance programs, veterans assistance, or any other social service agency support.
3. You cannot afford to pay for your medicine. You may qualify for the program if you have a household income of $43,320 or less for individuals, $58,280 or less for couples, or $88,200 or less for a family of four.2

1 You do not have to be a U.S. citizen. Legal residents of the United States are also eligible.
2 At Merck we realize that sometimes exceptions need to be made based on the patient's individual circumstances. If you do not meet the prescription drug coverage criteria, but your income meets the program criteria and there are special circumstances of financial and medical hardship that apply to your situation, you can request that an exception be made for you.
