If you’ve been using a drug manufacturer’s copay discount card to help with your out-of-pocket costs for a biologic or other specialty medication, you may soon be in for a surprise. Several large insurance companies and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) are implementing new schemes called “copay accumulator programs” that affect how contributions from those same copay cards are applied to your annual out-of-pocket cost requirements.
We offer a wide variety of resources for members of the spondylitis community, physicians and others who are interested in learning more about spondylitis.
