Common Questions About the Co-Pay Card & Financial Support
  • What are common terms when discussing paying for prescriptions?
    Co-Pay and coinsurance:co-insurance: Payments you make each time you get a medical service after reaching your deductible. A copay, which is also called a copayment, is typically a fixed amount you pay for your prescription (eg, $10). Coinsurance is a percentage of your prescription cost (eg,10%).

    Deductible: How much you have to spend for covered health services before your insurance company pays anything (except free preventive services).

    Out-of-pocket: The amount that you are responsible for paying after insurance has paid their portion of the cost of a covered health service.

    Out-of-pocket maximum: The most you have to spend for covered services in a year. After you reach this amount, your insurance may pay 100% of covered services.
  • Do I need to print out a physical card?
    No. You can simply share your unique Co-Pay Card information with your pharmacist when picking up your prescription. Feel free to save or screenshot the Co-Pay Card enrollment confirmation page or email, and share that with your pharmacist.
