Cost assistance

Paying for treatment shouldn’t get in the way of your health. That’s why our Horizon By Your Side team is diligent in exploring all options for you:

Do you have commercial insurance, such as a preferred provider organization (PPO) or health maintenance organization (HMO)? If so, you may qualify for a lower co-pay.* In some cases, this co-pay could be $0.

Do you have government insurance such as Medicare, Medicare Part D, Medicaid, Medigap, VA, CHAMPUS, Department of Defense, TRICARE, or any state patient, foundation, or other pharmaceutical program? If so, there may be additional support for you

If you would like to enroll in the Horizon By Your Side patient support program, call 1-833-583-7399 Monday through Friday, 8AM to 8PM ET to learn more about your cost assistance options and what your potential out-of-pocket cost for TEPEZZA may be.

Get support through the insurance approval process

TEPEZZA is a specialty medicine that is not available at your local pharmacy. Specialty medicines like TEPEZZA require additional approval from your insurance provider before you can begin treatment. The approval process can take up to 90 days from the time your doctor prescribes TEPEZZA until you get your first infusion. For some people, it may be shorter or longer depending on your insurance provider. But don’t worry. The Horizon By Your Side team is here to help.

After you enroll in Horizon By Your Side, you will be paired with a Patient Access Liaison (PAL). Your PAL can help you learn about the insurance approval process. If you would like to be connected with a PAL, call
1-833-583-7399 Monday through Friday, 8AM to 8PM ET. And check out the guide below to learn what to expect during the insurance approval process:

Patients who are diagnosed with Thyroid Eye Disease are confronting a variety of issues. I want them to understand that I will be a point person for them. I look at my role as being able to take as much off their plate as I can as they navigate the insurance and treatment processes.”
