TEPEZZA Cost Savings and Support

Once you and your doctor have decided TEPEZZA is right for you, services are available for you

Starting an intravenous, or "IV", treatment can be overwhelming, especially if it's your first time. But throughout your treatment journey, you can get support from Horizon, including information and education to understand the insurance process.

When it comes to the cost of treatment, we believe you should pay the lowest amount possible

Paying for treatment with TEPEZZA should be the last thing on your mind. That's why Horizon makes the extra effort to help provide the lowest cost for eligible patients.

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.*

Do you have government insurance? Government plans include: 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.

Once you’re prescribed TEPEZZA, your Patient Access Manager can speak with you about the insurance approval process and what your potential out-of-pocket cost to pay for TEPEZZA may be.

Patient Access Managers

If you and your doctor decide TEPEZZA is right for you, you can ask to be paired with your own personal Patient Access Manager (PAM). PAMs are trained professionals who know what you are going through. They are experienced in helping people with Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) navigate the insurance process, start treatment, and provide ongoing support throughout treatment with TEPEZZA.

Your TED journey is uniquely your own. Your personal PAM can provide support to help things go smoothly.

  • Your Patient Access Manager is your single point of contact for support and can help:
    • Take the frustration out of understanding your insurance benefits
    • Partner with you to help understand insurance roadblocks
    • Avoid surprises at the start of treatment by helping you navigate the details: your PAM is here for you, even for the small stuff!
    • Help you review your doctor's infusion center recommendations and schedule your first infusion

Once your enrollment in the program is processed, you will receive a welcome call from your Patient Access Manager.
