When it comes to treating most conditions, there’s a wide range of prescription medications from which to choose. However, when a patient is prescribed a specialty medication, it may be the only drug available to effectively treat that patient’s specific need.
There are often significant costs associated with specialty medications, both for the patient and the employer. Specialty medications are forecasted to account for 50% of drug spending but only 1-2% of total prescriptions by 2020.

Our MaxProtect Specialty Assistance Program is designed to help your employees get the specialty medications they need while decreasing the plan’s exposure to their high cost. We help connect the patient to the manufacturer’s assistance program by verifying their eligibility and enrolling them in the relevant programs. We’ll even re-enroll patients when needed, so they continue receiving assistance from the manufacturer to cover the cost of these drugs.
