What UCB Patient Assistance Is Available?
If you are having trouble paying for a UCB prescription, you may be eligible for help from either the UCB Patient Assistance Program (PAP) or one of the UCB Prescription Co-Pay Assistance Programs.
The UCB medications covered by these programs include:
- Cimzia – used in the treatment of autoimmune diseases such as plaque psoriasis, Crohn’s Disease, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and more
- Briviact CV – prescribed for the treatment of partial-onset seizures in children with epilepsy
- Vimpat CV – treats partial-onset seizures and generalized tonic-clonic seizures
- Neupro – Prescribed for people with Parkinson’s Disease or restless legs syndrome
- Nayzilam – co-pay assistance only; prescribed for rescue treatment of cluster seizures
What Does Simplefill Provide?
When all is said and done, what Simplefill provides to its members is peace of mind. By helping them access prescription assistance programs like the UCB PAP, we relieve them of the financial and emotional burden that often goes along with having a chronic disease requiring an uninterrupted supply of costly medications.
How Does UCB Patient Assistance Work?
In order to qualify for UCB patient assistance or co-pay assistance, you must:
- Be a resident of the United States, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico
- Have no insurance that provides prescription coverage, although you may still qualify if you are enrolled in a Medicare Part D plan
- Have a valid prescription from a U.S.-licensed health care provider for one of the covered UCB medications
- Have a total household income that is no more than 300% of the Federal Poverty Limit
If you meet all of the eligibility requirements and are approved for the UCB PAP, you will receive your UCB medication at no cost for a period of 12 months. At the end of that time, you will need to reapply. UCB co-pay assistance is also approved for an initial 12-month period, after which a new application is required.
How to Get Prescription Assistance
The first step in obtaining prescription assistance with our help is to become a Simplefill member by applying online or by calling us at (877)386-0206. Shortly thereafter, you’ll be called by one of our patient advocates who will interview you over the phone about your prescriptions, financial circumstances, and insurance status.
We will use the information the advocate obtains from you to create your Simplefill member profile. Your profile will give us the basis for determining whether or not you qualify for patient assistance from UCB or from other patient assistance programs.
We’ve intentionally designed our process to relieve our members of any paperwork burden, so you can count on us to submit applications on your behalf and get you enrolled upon approval. From that point on, we’ll continue to monitor your situation and ensure that you are never without the medications you need to manage your chronic health problem. We’ll also update your profile as needed to reflect any changes to your treatment plan. If your health care providers prescribe any new medications for you, we’ll help you get some assistance paying for them as well.
We hope you will come to view Simplefill as an essential partner on your health care journey.
