Copay Assistance For Generic Copaxone In California?

Copay Assistance For Generic Copaxone In California?

Question: My insurance changed and won’t cover the brand name Copaxone and only the generic form. Only problem is that the copay assistance program specifically for this generic form does not cover anyone in California. I’ve now gone weeks without my meds and I can’t locate any assistance to cover the monthly copay that I’ve previously always had when I was in Copaxone. Anyone else experience this and find a solution?

Copazone is Glatiramer Acetate 40 mg 3 x a week , I think it can go by Glatopa. But thats another BRAND name.

Check with Shared Solutions. They gave me a name of insurance companies that cover Copaxone. Costs me less too.

My insurance did the same thing to me. Took me off copaxone to the generic. Sore injections and injection sites, injector was hard to use and since my hand does not work well, had to have hubby give me my shots (He was not happy with that). Told my neurologist and he sent a form to insurance company and I am now back on copaxone. Itchy sites is now my only problem. Oh, I have Assured Assistance (Jan-Dec) for co-pays. Check with Shared Solutions for names of those assistance programs available.

You should get a complimentary kit, which includes an auto injector, and other things. anyway, I did, through Mylan. I never have used my auto injector, as I just prefer to do it manually. Good luck to you

Get an "auto-injector" from the company. Thats how I did it. You will probably need a "Rx" from your MD for it. Call Mylan and find out. Auto injector makes a HUGE difference . You insert it and push. Mylan actually sent out an RN to show me. She drove 1 1/2 hours to get to my house. They must reimburse well.
