Biogen is committed to helping people living with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS).

We can provide assistance once your patients are prescribed TECFIDERA. Biogen Support Services provides a variety of financial and insurance assistance options and other resources to help your patients get started on TECFIDERA.

We’re here to be a resource for your patients. And we’re just a phone call away.

Biogen Case Managers

Biogen Case Managers are here to help your patients start and continue on TECFIDERA. A Biogen Case Manager will reach out to your patient after they are prescribed TECFIDERA. Support is also available in Spanish.

Biogen Case Managers will also:

  • Educate your patients on financial assistance options available for TECFIDERA
  • Provide patient status updates to your office to help you stay up-to-date with their TECFIDERA treatment

Financial & Insurance Assistance

When treatment cost may be a concern for your patients, Biogen is here to help them start and continue on TECFIDERA. We will work with your patients based on their individual needs. Biogen Support Services offers a variety of different financial and insurance resources to help manage the cost of TECFIDERA, including:

  • Collaboration with insurance companies to clarify and confirm coverage, including assistance with the Prior Authorization process and denied claims
  • Insurance counseling that educates uninsured and underinsured patients on government insurance programs
  • Financial assistance options, including:
    • The Biogen Copay Program, which may lower TECFIDERA cost to as little as $0 for eligible patients with commercial insurance*
    • Other possible financial assistance, where applicable

*Depending on income or, in some cases, if medication is obtained from an out-of-network provider, there may be an annual cap that limits the amount of assistance that patients can receive over a one-year period. 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 may be eligible to enroll in the Biogen Copay Program for as long as it is offered and as long as they are treated with a Biogen relapsing MS medication. 
The Biogen Copay Program is no longer available to patients in California and Massachusetts due to state laws.
