The path to getting your patient started on Acthar begins when you reach a definitive diagnosis of IS. You’ll want to start by reviewing the information about physician referrals and reimbursement support.

Although most patients are in the hospital for approximately the first week of treatment with Acthar, the process of confirming coverage for the drug and giving injection training to the parents or caregivers continues during that time.

It’s imperative that your office staff provide complete information on all forms and remain available and responsive by phone until the shipment of Acthar reaches the patient’s parent or caregiver. Any delays in exchanging information can delay the patient’s access to the drug.
