  • What is Co-Pay and the $0 Co-Pay Program?

    A co-pay (or co-payment) is a flat fee that is paid each time a patient goes to a doctor or fills a prescription. The $0 Co-Pay Program helps reduce that fee.

    Patients with commercial insurance (self-purchased or through an employer) usually pay what is called the “out-of-pocket” cost for Otezla. This is the amount they owe after their insurance coverage has kicked in and any co-pays or deductibles have been applied.

    Whether you were just prescribed Otezla or have been on Otezla, you can enroll in the $0 Co-Pay Program today. Once you have enrolled, you’ll receive a digital co-pay card via email. Share the member ID number on your card with your specialty pharmacy to begin lowering your out-of-pocket costs. Eligible, commercially insured patients may pay as little as $0 per month for Otezla.

    The pharmacy can apply the $0 Co-Pay Card benefit (automatically) each month up to the annual maximum benefit of the co-pay program.

    The $0 Co-Pay Program is not for underinsured, Medicare, or Medicaid patients. If this is you, our team of Amgen SupportPlus Representatives can assist you with any questions you may have about your plan.

  • How do I get the $0 Co-Pay Card for Otezla?

    Signing up is simple, just fill out the form at Otezla.com/enroll, and if you’re eligible, you’ll automatically be enrolled. Once you have enrolled, you’ll receive a digital co-pay card via email. Share the member ID number on your card with your specialty pharmacy to begin lowering your out-of-pocket costs.

    If you prefer to enroll over the phone, you can call 1-844-4OTEZLA (1-844-468-3952) and speak to an Amgen SupportPlus Representative (available 8 AM – 8 PM ET, Monday – Friday).

    The Otezla Co-Pay Card is available to eligible patients with commercial insurance (usually self-purchased or through an employer) regardless of income level.

  • How long does enrollment in the $0 Co-Pay Program last?

    Re-enrollment in the program is required at regular intervals. You may continue in the program as long as you re-enroll as required by Amgen and continue to meet all of the program’s eligibility requirements during participation in the program.

    If at any point a patient’s insurance changes, their enrollment in the program may be re-evaluated. They must continue to meet the program’s eligibility requirements to continue receiving benefits.

Be sure to tell your doctor if any of these symptoms or other mood changes develop or worsen during treatment with Otezla.
