Manufacturer Financial Assistance
As drug costs continue to rise, drug manufacturers have designed ways to reduce the out-of-pocket costs for patients. Manufacturer copay assistance programs help commercially insured patients afford expensive prescription drugs by covering part or all of a member’s deductible and copay for certain medications.
You may not be eligible if you are insured with government funded plans like Medicare/Medicaid/Tricare and their sub plans however we may still have an option to look for.
The enrollment will require your signature, please be sure to check your email and respond accordingly.
Once you get the card it is imperative that you bring It to your appointment and give It to the front desk and nurse to avoid being fully responsible for the medication costs.
You will receive various automated reminders as well as a phone call to remind you of the date and time of your appointment.
During that call we also remind you of the following:
Your copay amount due. If you owe a copay you will get a link to pay, please pay to avoid any Interruptions to your appointment.
Manufacturer Cards. If you received a card from the medication manufacturer, you must bring your card with you and provide it to the office and nurse.
Reschedule If you have have a fever, chills, open wound, are on antibiotics, had recent surgery or have been exposed to someone with COVID.
