Information to help streamline the prescription process

Electronic Health Records (EHR) system insurance coverage process

Like all new brands, gaining formulary coverage takes time. The below process can help you navigate patient access for our new product. If EOHILIA isn’t available or listed on your EHR platform, your Takeda regional business manager can help you load it into the system. Click here to Request a Rep.

Step 1 icon

Prescribe EOHILIA through your EHR system

Step 2 icon

Provide the patient with the EOHILIA Copay Program Overview

Eligible, commercially insured patients may pay as little as $0 if EOHILIA is covered by their commercial insurance, per 30-day supply of EOHILIA. Eligible patients may pay as little as $0 if EOHILIA is covered by their commercial insurance, per 30-day supply of EOHILIA, with a max annual benefit of up to $2500 off their copay or out-of-pocket expenses. Please see Terms and Conditions. Download EOHILIA Copay Program Overview

Step 3 icon

If a PA is required, submitting a Letter of Medical Exception (LME) with it may be helpful

An electronic PA (ePA) is sent to your office if a PA is required. It is important to fully complete the PA, and provide all supporting information like medical and treatment history, which may include over-the-counter medications. If you choose to also submit an LME with the PA, we have a sample LME available as a reference guide. The PA form and all supporting documents, including LME, can be submitted electronically, or by fax.

Step 4 icon

If not covered or not approved, we have several resources that may provide your office with helpful information

The prescriber is notified that PA and/or LME have been rejected through the EHR, or through a call from the pharmacy, or the patient. Resources like the Sample LOA or EOHILIA At a Glance may provide your office with helpful information at this stage.

Once coverage is resolved and if coverage is approved, eligible patients may be able to pay as little as $0 for their prescription fill of EOHILIA.
