If you decide that Orenitram is right for your patient, support is available at initiation of treatment and as needed throughout the patient journey. ASSIST is a centralized referral hub for Orenitram that facilitates the referral process for patients.
For any questions about the forms, the status of referrals, or available financial support programs for patients, please contact your ASSIST Associate.
ASSIST can conduct a benefit investigation to help research and verify whether your patient’s prescribed medication is covered, their estimated co-payments, if prior authorization is required, and which Specialty Pharmacy the health plan prefers.
Prior Authorization (PA)
- PAH medications typically require prior authorization
- Prior Authorization requirements will vary by health plan or PBM
The downloadable PA Checklist is a resource that provides a list of general information typically requested by a health plan or a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) to render a decision on medications used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).
Please verify the specific health plan or PBM coverage criteria and policies for your patient’s prescribed medication. Coverage criteria and patient’s out-of-pocket cost varies.
*These codes are not all-inclusive; appropriate codes can vary by patient, setting of care, and payer. Correct coding is the responsibility of the provider submitting the claim for the item or service. Please check with the payer to verify codes and special billing requirements. United Therapeutics does not make any representation or guarantee concerning reimbursement or coverage for any service or item.
Many payers will not accept unspecified codes. If you use an unspecified code, please check with your payer.
Denial and appeal resources
If your patient’s prior authorization is denied, you may be able to appeal the determination with the insurance company. An ASSIST Associate can help you coordinate an appeal with the insurer by providing insurer-specific forms, contact information, and sample letters for reference.
