OFEV® (nintedanib) is available only from a Specialty Pharmacy. You cannot get OFEV capsules at your local retail pharmacy. Many people have never heard of a Specialty Pharmacy. Take a moment to learn more and discover how the experts working there may be able to help you in ways that go beyond filling your prescription.
A Specialty Pharmacy is different from your neighborhood pharmacy. They focus on medicines for conditions not typically handled in a retail pharmacy setting, and have experience and understanding of your condition.
If you qualify, your Specialty Pharmacy can arrange for financial support associated with helping you get your medicine. They can also help explore potential insurance benefit options, coordinate delivery of your medicine, and offer refill assistance.
After your doctor selects a Specialty Pharmacy, he or shewill make sure your prescription and paperwork are filled out correctly and faxed to the Specialty Pharmacy.
Once the paperwork is approved, your Specialty Pharmacy will call you to set up the delivery of your first shipment of OFEV. For legal reasons, your phone may show the call as "blocked" or "restricted." It's probably your Specialty Pharmacy. To receive your OFEV, please be sure to answer or call back.
Your Specialty Pharmacy will ship your OFEV prescription directly to your home. Please pick a delivery time when you know someone 18 years of age or older will be there to sign for the package. The shipping company cannot leave your prescription outside.
Your Specialty Pharmacy will call you 21 to 25 days after you start taking your OFEV. They will ask questions such as:
- How are you doing with your medication?
- How many pills do you have left?
- Have you been taking your pills regularly?
- Has your insurance information changed?
- Do you need any additional assistance?
It is important to inform your Specialty Pharmacy of any changes to your address or phone number, even if they are only temporary.
