BUILT ON A FOUNDATION
OF IMPROVING LIVES
Our employees are focused on putting science, technology and innovation to work to make a difference in patients' lives. This effort starts in the labs, moves into the clinic and continues with our commitment to ensuring patients can access the therapies they need.
PATIENT SUPPORT PROGRAMS
Regeneron offers comprehensive patient programs, such as EYLEA4U and MyPraluent, to help eligible patients throughout their treatment journey with insurance eligibility support, patient resources, financial assistance and access to free medicine.
These comprehensive patient programs provide support for patients throughout their treatment journey by offering insurance eligibility support, financial assistance and free medicine to eligible patients.
For patients covered through government healthcare programs such as Medicare who may need assistance with out-of-pocket costs, an independent co-pay assistance foundation may be able to help. Specialists can help patients understand foundation options and provide referrals. Additional services include access to educational information and clinical support for physicians, nurses and pharmacists.
Regeneron does not influence or control the operations of independent co-pay assistance foundations and cannot guarantee assistance will be provided.
In the USA, this type of compassionate use program is also known as an Expanded Access Program (EAP) and is intended for patients with serious or life-threatening conditions who do not have any viable or available treatment options, and are unable to participate in ongoing clinical trials. To view a list of Regeneron’s open clinical trials, visit clinicaltrials.gov.i
To ensure the safety of patients, we have developed certain criteria to evaluate Compassionate Use requests.ii All such requests are required to be in accordance with local laws and regulations, as well as with Regeneron Policies. While Regeneron is committed to reviewing each request carefully, fairly and on a case-by-case basis, we cannot guarantee access to any specific investigational medical product by any individual patient.
Requests for compassionate use must be initiated by a treating physician, so if you are a patient or caregiver, please ask your doctor for support in this process. Physicians should send compassionate use requests to CompassionateUse_Request@regeneron.com.iii Regeneron will acknowledge receipt of a physician’s request within five business days.iv
The following criteria must be met for consideration of Compassionate Use request:
- There is sufficient data to expect that the investigational medical product will have a favorable benefit-risk profile.
- The regulatory agency in the country where the patient resides must also approve the proposed use of the investigational drug, when required.
- Providing the investigational medical product will not interfere with or compromise its clinical development. This means that adequate supply of the investigational medical product must be available to perform necessary clinical studies before access is provided through the Compassionate Use program.
- There is a legitimate medical need documented and submitted by the treating physician.
- The physician initiating the Compassionate Use request and providing treatment must be qualified in terms of background, education, and experience to carry out the proposed protocol.
- The initiating physician agrees to assume all responsibilities and obligations to comply with the relevant regulatory requirements.
