The ACT Program
At Merck, we understand that obtaining the medicines you need can be complicated by health care reimbursement. To make the process easier, we created the ACT Program. The ACT Program provides free reimbursement support services to help answer questions related to insurance coverage and reimbursement.* The ACT Program also refers patients to the patient assistance program, which provides certain Merck medicines free of charge to eligible individuals, primarily the uninsured, who without our assistance, could not afford these needed Merck medicines. If you do not meet the prescription drug coverage criteria, 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.
Patient Assistance for Eligible Patients**
Program Specialists can help you apply for the patient assistance program, which provides certain Merck medicines free of charge to eligible patients who do not have insurance coverage.
Merck reserves the right to change or discontinue the program at any time.
Medicines distributed through the ACT Program are free of charge to all eligible patients. Merck is not associated with any individuals or organizations that may charge patients a fee to assist them in completing applications for our program. These individuals or organizations are acting independently of Merck, and do not have Merck's consent.
To report an adverse experience with a specific Merck medicine, please call the Merck National Service Center at 1-800-444-2080.
