PharmaDerm Launches Co-Pay Rebate Programs
FLORHAM PARK, N.J., July 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PharmaDerm, a division of Nycomed US Inc., announced today the availability of prescription drug assistance programs to reduce health insurance co-payments for six primary dermatological brands. Under the programs, patients will pay $10 - $30 out-of-pocket for ADOXAÃ® 150mg (doxycycline capsules), APEXICONÃ® E (diflorasone diacetate USP 0.05% [emollient]) CREAM, CUTIVATEÃ® (fluticasone propionate) LOTION, 0.05%, OXISTATÃ® (oxiconazole nitrate) CREAM, 1% and LOTION, 1%, SOLARAZEÃ® (diclofenac sodium) Gel, 3%, and VEREGENÃ® (sinecatechins) Ointment, 15%.
The programs reduce the patient's out-of-pocket costs through the use of Instant Savings Cards. These cards can be obtained directly from a doctor's office and are used in conjunction with a valid prescription. Patients present the card to their pharmacist when filling the prescription and have their co-pay or out-of-pocket cost reduced.
Any individual with prescription drug benefits coverage requiring a patient co-payment is eligible to participate in the programs. Terms and conditions (e.g., co-pay amount, eligibility requirements, limits on number of prescriptions and prescription refills, program activation and expiration dates) vary by product.
To learn more about the co-pay assistance programs and to obtain Instant Savings Cards, physicians can contact their local PharmaDerm sales representative or call customer service at 1-800-645-9833. Patients who have questions about the programs can also call the customer service toll-free number.
