A 65 year old woman who just underwent a hip replacement surgery was prescribed Eliquis® to prevent blood clots. She has limited mobility due to her recent surgery and lives a great distance from medical services. Her other common drug therapy options require frequent blood testing, which is very inconvenient for her. Therefore, her only feasible option to prevent blood clots is to take Eliquis®. Even with her insurance, she pays an exorbitant amount to fill her prescription. She feels helpless, as she does not have the funds to pay for her medication.
Patient Advocate Response
After consulting with the patient, the advocate collaborates with the pharmacy and finds out she is paying a great amount due to a gap in her insurance coverage. The patient advocate researches payment assistance through the manufacturer and helps Lisa fill out and submit the necessary paperwork to receive payment assistance.
