As part of its Betaplus patient support program, Bayer will refund a single copay for those who take Betaseron for 11 consecutive months.
Under the new benefit, people who send in their prescription receipts for Betaseron will be refunded the copay for their 11th month of use of the drug, up to $500.
The Betaplus program also has other options to save patients money, including monthly co-pay assistance for as long as a person is on Betaseron therapy and specialists who may be able to help obtain insurance coverage of the drug.
The Betaplus program also offers access to MS nurses, email reminders about injection days, one-on-one injection training, and calls from peer mentors.
