LENVIMA® is generally covered by Insurance Companies, Medicare and Medicaid. Coverage may vary based on the specific type of insurance you have and your Healthcare Provider. Ask your Healthcare Provider about how your insurance will cover LENVIMA®.
Understanding your insurance coverage is the first step in getting your treatments covered. In most cases, this is going to start with your healthcare provider contacting your insurance company. For LENVIMA®, Specialty Pharmacies can oversee the process and assist you and your Healthcare Provider in managing your coverage. Specialty Pharmacies deliver specialized medicines for complex diseases. Your Specialty Pharmacy is an important part of your health care team. They will mail your medication directly to you. The Specialty Pharmacy will help you from the start of therapy and will be in regular contact with you throughout your treatment.
LENVIMA® can also be dispensed through eligible physician office/clinic or hospital pharmacies. Your doctors office can help you understand your coverage for LENVIMA®.
Once your coverage has been established you can explore your alternatives. If your insurance covers most of your treatment costs, there may be assistance paying the copays on your medications.
