Patient Assistance Program—Diabetes Care

The Novo Nordisk Patient Assistance Program (PAP) is based on our commitment to people living with diabetes and on our philosophy, known as the Novo Nordisk Triple Bottom Line. The Novo Nordisk PAP provides free diabetes medicine to those who qualify.

If you are approved for the PAP, you qualify to receive free diabetes medicine from Novo Nordisk for up to a year.

The Novo Nordisk PAP is free. There is no registration charge or monthly fee for participating in the Novo Nordisk PAP.

Do you qualify for PAP?

You are eligible if:

  • You are a US citizen or legal resident
  • Your total household income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty level (FPL). See the chart on the PAP Application (in English or Spanish) or visit the Families USA website, which lists the current FPL guidelines

You are not eligible if you have:

  • Any private prescription coverage, such as an HMO or PPO
  • Any federal, state, or local program, such as Medicare or Medicaid. Exceptions include patients who have entered the coverage gap (donut hole) in 
Medicare Part D, and patients who have applied for and been denied Medicare Extra Help/Low Income Subsidy (LIS) and are Medicare eligible
  • Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) prescription benefits

Program participants agree to verification of eligibility. Participants who are eligible for Medicaid must provide proof of Medicaid denial.
