If you need help paying for yourOFEV® (nintedanib) prescription, there are programs available to assist you. If you are eligible, you may pay as little as $0 for a monthly supply of OFEV capsules. The programs are available to help you with your out-of-pocket costs (such as copay or deductibles) for your OFEV. Additionally, if you have commercial pharmacy insurance, there is nothing for you to fill out. No forms to complete. Your doctor provides your Specialty Pharmacy with the information they need. They take it from there.
With OFEV reimbursement support, there are a few ways to save on your
The OFEV commercial copay Program
If you have commercial insurance, you may be eligible for the OFEV Commercial Copay Program. The Specialty Pharmacy will determine if you are eligible when they are processing your prescription drug claim (benefits verification process).
With the OFEV Commercial Copay Program:
- There is no card to carry or worry about. The program is managed by the Specialty Pharmacy. Your eligibility is determined by the Specialty Pharmacy during the benefits verification process.
- You must be re-enrolled every 12 months. Your enrollment and re-enrollment are completed by the Specialty Pharmacy.
Assistance through foundations
- Patients who have government-funded pharmacy benefits, such as Medicare Part D, may be eligible for copay assistance through independent foundations. Your Specialty Pharmacy will be able to assist you with identification of copay assistance foundations.
- To qualify, you must have an income below a designated percentage of the federal poverty level. This figure may be different with each foundation. If you qualify, the foundation will usually provide funds to assist with your out-of-pocket costs.
- Foundations typically require an application and proof of income. Eligibility requirements vary among charitable foundations.

offer, speak to your Specialty Pharmacy or call OPEN DOORS™ at 1-866-OPENDOOR (1-866-673-6366)
