*Prior Authorization is a process used by some health insurance companies in the United States to determine if they will cover a prescribed procedure, service, or medication.
†Depending on patients’ income or, in some cases, if their medication is obtained from an out-of-network provider, there may be an annual cap that limits the amount of assistance that they can receive over one year. Federal and state laws and other factors may prevent or otherwise restrict eligibility. People covered by Medicare, Medicaid, the VA/DoD, or any other federal plans are not eligible to enroll. Patients are eligible to enroll in the $0 Copay Program for as long as they are treated with a Biogen relapsing MS medication.
TECFIDERA has preferred formulary coverage by many of the country’s top insurance providers for your patients with relapsing MS with no step-therapy restrictions. It is therefore available for treatment-naive patients, as well as patients converting from another product.
§Coverage may vary, and there is no guarantee of coverage.
