Out-of-Pocket Assistance Program

Support for eligible patients with commercial insurance

If you have commercial insurance coverage for treatment with Radicava®, you may be eligible to receive help from the Out-of-Pocket Assistance Program.

Searchlight Support Assistance Program

If enrolled in the program, you will:

  • Save on your deductible, co-pay, and co-insurance costs for Radicava® and for your infusions
  • Pay as little as $0 per infusion*
  • Receive coverage for out-of-pocket costs for Radicava® for 12 months—up to $20,000

*Restrictions apply.

You will be contacted each year before the end of your eligibility period to re-enroll for continued out-of-pocket assistance for treatment with Radicava®. You will be responsible for any costs associated with Radicava® and your infusion above the maximum annual program benefit.

How the Out-of-Pocket Assistance Program works:

Eligible patients with commercial insurance coverage for Radicava® may be enrolled in the Searchlight Support Out-of-Pocket Assistance Program when you and your HCP complete and submit a Benefit Investigation and Enrollment Form.

  1. Searchlight Support will review your insurance benefits to determine your out-of-pocket costs, and your eligibility for the Out-of-Pocket Assistance Program.
  2. If eligible, you will receive a Welcome Letter which includes your Patient ID. Your HCP will also be notified of your enrollment and provided with your Patient ID.
  3. When you begin treatment with Radicava®, your HCP will use your Patient ID to receive payment from the program for your out-of-pocket costs for the initial 14-day treatment cycle:
    • Payment is based on your out-of-pocket costs as determined by your health plan coverage
    • Your out-of-pocket costs are detailed in the Final Benefit Summary provided by Searchlight Support to both you and your HCP.
  4. For treatments after the initial 14-day cycle, your HCP will submit a copy of the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your health plan and claim form to Searchlight Support for review and processing of payment of your out-of-pocket costs.

If you have already paid your HCP for the out-of-pocket costs for your treatment, please contact Searchlight Support for information on how you may receive reimbursement.
