Getting Your Otezla Prescription

Otezla® (apremilast) is delivered by a specialty pharmacy. What does that mean? Unlike a retail pharmacy, where you go to pick up your medication, specialty pharmacies deliver your Otezla straight to your door. To learn more, check out the video below, or scroll down to read on.

You can also download the free GOtezla App, which is full of helpful information as you get started on treatment.

Working With a Specialty Pharmacy

Step 1

Your doctor will send your prescription to a specialty pharmacy. This may take a few days—your specialty pharmacy may need to get prior authorization from your insurance company before they approve your prescription. Either way, don’t worry! SupportPlus™ will work directly with your insurance company and specialty pharmacy to fill your prescription.

Identify your specialty pharmacy. If you don’t know the name of your specialty pharmacy, or don’t think you have one, give your doctor’s office a call. The staff there can help.

Step 2

Your specialty pharmacy will call you to set up delivery of your prescription. This call will come from an unfamiliar number—be sure to pick up the phone! Don't worry if you don't hear from your specialty pharmacy right away. They may need to call your insurance company first. If you don't hear from them within a week or so after being prescribed Otezla, call SupportPlus™ at 1-844-4OTEZLA1-844-4OTEZLA and we can help.

You may be able to save! While they're on the phone, ask your specialty pharmacy about the $0 co-pay* offer for Otezla.

What if your insurance company denies your prescription?

Don't worry! If you receive a denial letter from your insurance company, contact your specialty pharmacy and let them know so they can work toward getting your prescription approved. They may already be working with your doctor to appeal the insurance company's denial letter. If you have any questions, or need a hand, give SupportPlus™ a call at 1-844-4OTEZLA1-844-4OTEZLA. We're here to help. Learn more about Otezla SupportPlus.

Step 3

Otezla will be delivered to your home. Once your specialty pharmacy receives approval from your insurance company, they will fill the prescription and send your Otezla directly to you, so you can continue taking it as directed by your doctor.

Know the Name and Number of Your Specialty Pharmacy

Keep the name and phone number for your specialty pharmacy handy, or save it in your phone. That way, you can contact them with questions, like how to keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as possible. This reminder card can help. Download now.
