    IPSEN CARES Patient Assistance Program Application

    The Patient Assistance Program (PAP) is designed to provide Increlex at no cost to eligible patients. Patients may be eligible to receive free drug if they are experiencing financial hardship, are uninsured or functionally uninsured, are US residents, and received a valid prescription for an on-label use of Increlex as supported by information provided in the program application. Eligibility does not guarantee approval for participation in the program. The PAP provides Increlex product only, and does not cover the cost of previously purchased product or medical services.

    Required if patient is under 18 years of age.
