I authorize my/the patient’s doctor(s) and their staff (including those pharmacies that may receive my/the patient’s prescription for Bylvay®) to disclose my/the patient’s protected health information (“PHI”), including health information about insurance, prescription, care management, and medical condition to Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., and/or its affiliates, and/or its agents or third-party vendors that have been hired to administer the Ipsen Coverage, Access, Reimbursement & Education Support (IPSEN CARES) program (collectively, “Ipsen”) in order for Ipsen to (1) enroll me/the patient in IPSEN CARES; (2) establish my/the patient’s benefit eligibility and potential out of pocket costs for Bylvay; (3) communicate with my/the patient’s doctors and health plans about my/the patient’s treatment plan; (4) provide support services, including patient education and financial assistance for Bylvay; (5) help get Bylvay shipped to me/the patient or my healthcare provider; and (6) facilitate my/the patient’s participation in Bylvay patient programs as I have requested or may request, including the IPSEN CARES Patient Assistance Program (the “PAP”) if applicable. I agree that, using the contact information I provide, Ipsen may contact me/the patient by phone, mail, and/or email for reasons related to the IPSEN CARES program and support services, including (1) determining if I/the patient am/is eligible for assistance and related support services, (2) leaving messages for me that disclose that I/the patient am/is on Bylvay therapy and/or applied for IPSEN CARES support services and am/is or am not/is not eligible for assistance; (3) operating Ipsen Cares patient programs that might help me pay for or access my/the patient’s medicines; and (4) confirming receipt of medications. I consent to being contacted by an IPSEN CARES program representative in order for the program to obtain further information or clarification regarding any adverse event I/the patient may experience. I also give Ipsen permission to share my/the patient’s PHI and other information with people and companies that work with IPSEN CARES, including; government agencies, including insurance providers; my/the patient’s doctor(s) and other people, or institutions who are involved in my/the patient’s healthcare, such as pharmacies and hospitals; and/or other organizations that might help me pay for my/the patient’s medication. All information that I provide may be used by Ipsen or any third party working on behalf of Ipsen in connection with IPSEN CARES. I understand that my/the patient’s healthcare providers may receive remuneration from Ipsen in connection with my/the patient’s PHI and/or for any therapy support services provided to me/the patient.
I understand that once my/the patient’s PHI has been disclosed to Ipsen, it is no longer protected by federal privacy laws, and Ipsen may re-disclose it; however, Ipsen has agreed to make reasonable efforts to protect my/the patient’s PHI by using and disclosing it only for the purposes described above or as required by law. I can withdraw this authorization by contacting IPSEN CARES at 1-866-435-5677 or mailing a letter requesting such revocation to IPSEN CARES, 2250 Perimeter Park Dr. Suite 300 Morrisville, NC 27560, but it will not change any actions taken before I withdraw this authorization. Withdrawal of this authorization will end further uses and disclosures of PHI by the parties identified in this form except to the extent those uses and disclosures have been made in reliance upon this authorization.
I understand that I may refuse to sign this form and, if I do so, I/the patient will not be able to participate in IPSEN CARES, but it will not affect my/the patient’s eligibility to obtain medical treatment, my/the patient’s ability to seek payment for this treatment, or affect my/the patient’s insurance enrollment or eligibility for insurance coverage. This authorization expires three years from the date signed unless a shorter time is required by law or unless I revoke my authorization before that time. I understand that I will receive a copy of the signed authorization.
I confirm that any information, including financial and insurance information, that I provide to IPSEN CARES is complete and true, and unless I have said something different in this application, I have no insurance coverage for this product, which includes Medicaid, Medicare, or any public or private assistance programs or any other form of insurance. If my income or health insurance coverage changes, I will immediately notify IPSEN CARES at 1-866-435-5677. I confirm that I/the patient am/is a resident of the United States (including its territories). I understand that Ipsen may revise, change, or terminate this program at any time without notice.
