TERMS AND CONDITIONS
- Limitations apply.
- The Advanced Accelerator Applications (AAA) PatientCONNECT™ Lutathera® Copay Assistance Program (the “Program”) is valid only for patients with commercial insurance coverage who are otherwise eligible for the Program. The Program is not valid under Medicare, Medicaid, or any other federal or state program, for cash-paying patients, where the product is not covered by the patient’s commercial insurance, or where the patient’s insurer reimburses the patient for the entire cost of Lutathera (lutetium Lu 177 dotatate).
- The patient is obligated to notify AAA PatientCONNECT™ at 844-638-7222 promptly if the patient’s insurance coverage changes or otherwise becomes ineligible for coverage under the Program.
- Patient must be age 18 or older.
- Patient must be a permanent resident of the United States, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the United States Virgin Islands.
- Patient must be prescribed Lutathera for an FDA approved indication.
- Treatment with Lutathera must be provided in an appropriate outpatient setting.
- The Program provides that an eligible patient will be responsible for the first $25.00 and then may receive up to a maximum of $15,000.00 over the course of the treatment (i.e., four Lutathera infusions) to cover eligible out-of-pocket costs for Lutathera. After the maximum coverage is reached, the patient will be responsible for any costs incurred.
- Patient must have an out-of-pocket cost for Lutathera and be administered Lutathera prior to the expiration date of the Program. The benefit available under the Program is valid for the patient’s out-of-pocket cost for Lutathera only. It is not valid for any other out-of-pocket costs (e.g., office visit charges or medication administration charges) even if such costs are associated with the administration of Lutathera.
- If a patient’s insurance benefit year expires during the course of approved Program eligibility, confirmation of ongoing treatments and updated insurance information must be received from the treatment facility or physician’s office for eligibility under the Program to be continued into the new benefit period.
- The patient is subject to eligibility verification prior to enrollment in the Program.
- The patient’s eligibility for the Program expires on the anniversary of the first year following the patient’s initial approval for the Program. Thereafter, the patient may re-enroll in the Program on a yearly basis. For each re-enrollment period, the patient is subject to eligibility verification.
- Reimbursement under the Program is processed after services are rendered and the appropriate documentation is submitted to the Program. Such documentation must be submitted within 365 days after the date of service and must specify a line item specifically for Lutathera.
- The benefit conferred by the Program is exclusively for the patient.
- The Program is not valid where prohibited by law.
- Patient and the patient’s health care provider must not seek reimbursement for the benefit conferred by the Program from any other party, including without limitation, any health insurance program or plan, flexible spending account or healthcare savings account.
- The Program is not health insurance.
- The Program may not be combined with any third-party rebate, coupon, or offer.
- Data related to the patient’s receipt of benefits under the Program may be collected, analyzed and shared with AAA, in an aggregated and patient de-identified form, for purposes that include assessing the Program and potentially making adjustments to such Program.
- Advanced Accelerator Applications, a Novartis company, reserves the right to rescind, revoke or amend the Program and/or discontinue assistance at any time without notice.
- No other purchase is necessary.
- Program is limited to 1 per person during this offering period and is not transferable.
