Help With Copays?

Check for copay coverage. Considering that some patients need financial assistance, our copay assistance programs may help eligible* patients with the cost of their treatment.

The Increlex Copay Assistance Program for eligible, commercially insured and uninsured patients is available by enrolling in IPSEN CARES. Here is the key information:

  • Patients may pay as little as $0 per prescription
  • For patients utilizing the Pharmacy Benefit, we will provide the virtual pharmacy copay card information on behalf of the patient directly to the specialty pharmacy being utilized
  • For patients who are eligible for government health benefits (eg, Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE), IPSEN CARES may be able to offer the contact information for independent nonprofit foundations that may be able to offer financial assistance

Patients residing in Massachusetts, Minnesota, or Rhode Island can only receive assistance with the cost of Ipsen products but not the cost of related medical services (injection).
