Affording therapy.

We believe that everyone who is prescribed growth hormone therapy should have access to it. We have developed several programs that may help.

JumpStart™

Getting started and staying on therapy.

Sometimes insurance coverage takes time to kick in. This can happen because of normal processing time, but coverage can also be delayed if your initial claim is denied and your NovoCare® Case Manager is assisting with the appeal process.

If there will be a delay in getting insurance coverage, your Case Manager may talk with you about the JumpStart program, through which qualifying patients can receive a limited supply of free Norditropin®. You will never have to repay NovoCare® for this medication, even if your claim is eventually denied.a

JumpStart may still be an option even after your insurance coverage begins, if there is a risk of a gap in therapy caused by any of the following circumstances:


Moving


Changing insurance providers


Change in financial circumstances


Unexpected situations (such as losing the pen, the pen becoming too warm, etc.)


aPatients who have been prescribed Norditropin® for an FDA-approved indication, and who have commercial insurance may be eligible to receive a limited supply of free product from JumpStart. Patients who participate in any government, state, or federally funded medical or prescription benefit programs, including Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, VA, DOD, and TRICARE, including patients who participate in a managed Medicaid program or have Medicaid as secondary insurance, are not eligible to participate in JumpStart. JumpStart product is provided at no cost to the patient or the HCP, is not contingent on any product purchase, and the patient and HCP must not: (1) bill any third party for the free product, or (2) resell the free product.

Patient Access Program

Patient Access Program

When money gets in the way.

Growth hormone is an important medical therapy. Lack of insurance coverage or limited financial means shouldn’t prevent someone from getting the treatment they need. If you qualify, our Patient Access Program is available to provide free Norditropin® for up to one (1) year to eligible patients who do not have adequate insurance coverage.

Patients who show true financial need based on things like their family’s yearly income, where they live, and the number of people living with them may receive this benefit until their financial or insurance status improves. To find out if you are eligible for help through NovoCare®, call us at 1-888-NOVO-444 (1-888-668-6444).b

NordiSure™

Changed for the better. Changed for you.

NordiSure™ Co-pay Assistance Program
We know that costs can add up. That’s why we have made it easier for you to access help with NordiSure™. 

If you are eligible, the NordiSure™ Co-pay Assistance Program can give you up to $3,000 a year in upfront co-pay assistance for Norditropin®. For many, this can lower monthly out-of-pocket costs per Norditropin® prescription, depending on your insurance plan.c
