Understanding your insurance benefits and your out-of-pocket costs can be overwhelming and confusing. Don’t worry. Teva’s Shared Solutions® could be the resource you are looking for! We have a dedicated team of Benefits Specialists to answer your COPAXONE® (glatiramer acetate injection) related insurance questions.

Our goal is to make COPAXONE® accessible and affordable, so you don’t have to worry,if you have a high co-pay. Although we cannot assist you in selecting a commercial or private insurance plan, our Benefits Specialists can conduct a benefits investigation to determine what your out-of-pocket costs might be for COPAXONE® and, if needed, help determine what type of Shared Solutions® financial assistance program would best fit your needs.

A co-pay is your part of the cost and depends on what type of insurance plan you have. Co-pays can vary widely.

  • Some plans might have a deductible which you would have to satisfy first before insurance will pay anything. Once you meet that deductible, your plan might have a co-insurance, which is a certain percentage that both you and your insurance plan would pay.
  • Certain plans could have a maximum out-of-pocket cost, which means you would pay a certain percentage (your co-insurance) until that out of pocket is met and then the insurance would start paying 100% after that.
  • Other plans just have a co-pay amount, which is all that you would be responsible for paying.

The good news is that you may qualify to pay little to nothing out of pocket for your 3-times-a-week COPAXONE® 40 mg, with the COPAXONE Co-Pay Solutions®, if you have commercial or private insurance. You can connect with one of Teva’s Benefits Specialists by calling 1-800-887-8100 or click to learn more. Give us a call, and we’ll help answer your questions about insurance and financial solutions related to taking COPAXONE®. Terms and Conditions apply.

Anytime you have an insurance change, whether it is new insurance, a change in benefits or a change in the pharmacy you are using, please contact Teva’s Shared Solutions®. Our Benefits Specialists can help determine if you would be a good fit for one of our financial assistance programs. It is important to contact Teva’s Shared Solutions® if you are currently participating in one of these programs and experience any changes.

    I called the 800-887-8100 yesterday (1-9-18). I waited at least 35 minutes to speak with a customer representative. Finally a recording came on which said all representatives were busy, and I was redirected to leave my name and phone number for a call back. However, this mailbox was full and not accepting more callers. Then I was disconnected. I have been a copaxone user for over thirteen years.
