TYMLOS can be readily accessed by high-risk patients1,2

3 out of 4 commercial and Medicare Part D patients* with access to TYMLOS may have a fracture exemption.
This means first-line access and no step edit required.

Radius defines a fracture exemption as a health plan’s UM criteria that states if an appropriate§ TYMLOS patient has a documented history of, or recent, low-trauma fracture, then TYMLOS may be approved by that health plan.

Not required:

  • Trial or failure of another therapy indicated for osteoporosis (step edit)
  • Documentation of BMD T-score or FRAX®
*Data is based on published UM criteria available in MMIT as of 5/1/2021 consisting of approximately 176M commercial and Medicare D covered lives. There are approximately 193M commercial and Medicare D total covered lives in the United States.
Access is defined as the ability for a patient to obtain TYMLOS through their health plan. Prior authorization may apply. Check health plan coverage, UM criteria, and patient costs, as they may vary or change without notice.
Not all health plans define history of, or recent, low-trauma fracture the same. Prior to prescribing, review the health plan’s UM criteria for their definition.
§An appropriate patient is a patient with postmenopausal osteoporosis, without contraindications, who has not exceeded the limitations of use, and is not on concomitant osteoporosis therapies.

BMD=bone mineral density; UM=utilization management; MMIT=Managed Market Insights and Technology.
