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.

If you are 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
How this 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.

What can I do if my insurance company denies coverage for Radicava®?

As with many new treatment options, your insurance company may initially deny your treatment with Radicava®. If this happens, you may be able to do something about it. Here are some ideas you may find helpful:

  • Talk to your healthcare provider (HCP) to see if it may be possible to file an appeal

    Having your HCP file an appeal may help give your insurance provider more details about why you should receive treatment.

    If the appeal does not work, your HCP may request a next-level appeal. Some of the people that may be involved include a panel of HCPs, an administrative judge, or a local state representative.

  • Consider other insurance plan options

    For example, even if you are under 65, you may be eligible for Medicare or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

    For questions about appeals or insurance coverage, call Searchlight Support at 1-844-SRCHLGT (1-844-772-4548).

What can I do if I am denied infusion by a site of care?

If your preferred site of care is unable to accommodate you, our National Infusion Center Directory may help identify another location. Call Searchlight Support at 1-844-SRCHLGT (1-844-772-4548) to learn more.
