Help your patients determine which plans may cover TYMLOS:
The search tool below may help you and your patients figure out which insurance plans cover a TYMLOS prescription, and at what tier. To find out if your patient's plan is listed, select her state, region, and the name of her plan. Please note that this tool is provided and maintained by Managed Markets Insight & Technology, LLC and is not managed by Radius Health.
There are many different factors that determine the cost of a drug, how much an insurance company may pay toward the medication, and the amount a patient will be required to pay out-of-pocket. Please contact the patient's insurer or plan administrator directly if you have any questions, or if a plan is not listed.
If TYMLOS is not covered under your patient's insurance plan, you can advise her to call 1-866-896-5674 to learn about RadiusAssist, a patient assistance program that may be available to patients who cannot afford their medication.
