Once the doctor has prescribed Somatuline® Depot (lanreotide) injection, the Patient Access Specialists at IPSEN CARES™ can provide applicable patient coverage information, as appropriate, between the patient, doctor's office, insurance company, and specialty pharmacy. By serving as a central point of contact, IPSEN CARES can help patients get started on treatment and provide support throughout the process.
Patients must enroll in IPSEN CARES through the doctor's office to verify benefits.
Our Patient Access Specialists will check each patient's pharmacy and medical benefits to determine if the drug is covered for the indication the treating physician has specified. If there are any restrictions, IPSEN CARES will provide the information required by the insurance company that the doctor may need to complete. A summary of all the information collected will be sent back to the doctor’s office in a single document called Benefit Verification Results. Benefit verifications are usually turned around within 4 business hours upon receipt of the completed enrollment form and patient authorization.
Patients and Health Care Providers can also call IPSEN CARES at (866) 435-5677
