Copay Assistance

AssistRx has developed and administered copay programs since our founding. 

Our technology is capable of managing:

  • – Enrollment processes
  • – Electronic income qualifications
  • – CRM
  • – End-to-end copay program administration including:
  • Functionality design
  • Back-end adjudication
  • Developing and maintaining specialty pharmacy-, healthcare provider- and patient-facing engagement websites

Upon program enrollment through iAssist, branded engagement websites, life sciences organizations’ brand website or Patient Solutions CRM, the copay card can be immediately activated; downloaded, printed, emailed or texted to the patient and/or healthcare provider; and sent along with the prescription electronically to the pharmacy as a full enrollment package. Thus, we offer virtual and physical copay cards and vouchers that facilitate immediate access to therapy.

Patient Assistance Programs

AssistRx facilitates real-time, electronic screening and enrollment into life sciences organization-sponsored patient assistance programs (PAPs). Through our integrations with third parties, we can immediately identify patient eligibility per life sciences organization-specific business rules. Upon program approval, patients can be provided with a voucher to support immediate access to therapy.
