Specialty pharmacy providers (SPPs)
Your insurance company may require you to fill your NEXAVAR prescription through a certain type of pharmacy called an SPP. Employees of an SPP can work directly with the members of your oncology team, and sometimes your health insurance provider, to coordinate your care. You can call the SPP directly for information, but remember, their assistance is not a substitute for your doctor/healthcare provider.
Using an SPP
When you fill a prescription through an SPP, it's likely you will receive your NEXAVAR prescription through the mail.
As with any prescription for your cancer, your oncologist will be the one who writes your NEXAVAR prescription. If your insurance requires you to fill your prescription through an SPP, a member of the SPP may reach out to you to confirm any co-payment information or shipping information. They may also want to discuss any support programs the SPP offers.
Once this information has been discussed, your prescription will arrive quickly. In many cases, your first prescription will come with a starter kit and other patient education materials.
Partnering with an SPP helps ensure you are fully supported throughout your therapy and offers you these additional services:
Follow-up throughout your treatment on various topics, including side effect management and refill reminders
Confirmed delivery of NEXAVAR and patient support materials
Counseling for patients who are just starting NEXAVAR therapy
