Our goal to support the health of patients and families goes beyond the therapeutics we provide. We also work with the patient community and the healthcare experts who serve them to identify and overcome barriers to care.
Whether we are advancing disease awareness or assisting patients through access and adherence support, our programs are designed to empower individuals to better understand and proactively manage their health.
We are committed to investing in patient assistance programs across our portfolio to help connect indicated patients and their healthcare providers to the information, resources and support they need to access our products and services in their time of need.
Our customer support center, Makena Care Connection, has established expertise in supporting patients by connecting eligible patients to a variety of support. This support includes:
Each woman is unique and so are her insurance benefits. Because timely access is important we’ll aid in processing prescriptions, verifying insurance coverage, and obtaining prior authorizations (when applicable) to help patients get their prescription on time.
AMAG Pharmaceuticals is committed to helping ensure affordable access to Makena. We provide financial assistance to lower the out-of-pocket costs for commercial patients and therapy at no cost for eligible uninsured and commercially underinsured patients.*
*Each patient’s eligibility is evaluated on an individual basis. To be eligible, patients must meet the FDA-approved indication (pregnant with a single baby with a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth <37 weeks). In compliance with federal regulations, patients insured a by government-funded program (Medicaid, TRICARE, etc.) are not eligible. Restrictions apply.
Home Injection by Healthcare Professionals
Moms prescribed Makena can choose to receive their injections by a healthcare professional in the comfort of their home or another location that’s convenient for them, if covered by insurance. We’ll investigate the patient’s coverage for home healthcare administration of therapy and if approved, coordinate with the payer-preferred organization on her behalf.
Education and Adherence
We understand that moms receiving Makena injections may need some encouragement and support to stick to their weekly injection schedule, and we want to help. This free service offers educational and adherence support to encourage women to make Makena part of their pregnancy and take an active role in their health.
We established AMAG Assist with the goal of helping to ensure that all indicated patients and their healthcare providers can obtain our therapies at the time of need. This reimbursement support program helps patients and providers understand the details of patient-specific health insurance coverage for our products and provides information on other sources of financial assistance for qualifying patients in need.
