  • Eli Lilly Increases Income Threshold for Patient Assistance

    Eli Lilly has increased their income threshold for their free patient assistance program (Lilly Cares) from 200% to 300% of poverty level.  The program covers most Lilly products including insulin.  The phone number is 1-800-545-6962.

    Some of the eligibility requirements include:

    • Patients must be U.S. residents
    • Total yearly income at or below 300% of the Federal Poverty Level. For example: $44,000 or less for a family of two.
    • No other prescription drug coverage. For example: private insurance, government: Medicaid, VA, Medicare Part D.

    You will also need proof of income:

  • First page of your federal tax return for prior tax year. (1040 or 1040EZ tax form)
  • Any other source of income (examples include: Social Security income, pensions, unemployment, alimony, food stamps)
  • To complete an application:

    Blank applications may be downloaded from the Lilly Cares web site, or arrangements to receive an application by mail or fax may be made by calling 1–800–545–6962.

    Applications have both a patient section and a physician section, and both you and your physician must complete and sign your individual sections.

    Mail application and proof of income to:

      Lilly Cares
      PO Box 230999
      Centreville, VA 20120
