Customer Question

I am 68 years old and have been taking abilify which I received from my doctor. Now that it is generic he does not get the samples, However the generic price for a thirty day supply of $460 per month. I need abilify but I cannot afford it. I live on my SS only and I am retired. How can this drug be made affordable for me? I am in Medicare.

There are some patient assistance programs available to help pay for Abilify. I have attached a copy of the form from Bristol- Myers Squibb.

This assistance program may be able to offer you significant savings vs paying retail prices for Abilify, which are still well over $300 for a month supply for brand or generic (even on the discount pharmacy websites).
