Simplified insulin delivery deserves simplified access
The Omnipod® System is widely covered by commercial plans, with coverage for over 208 million lives through both the medical benefit and pharmacy benefit. Broad commercial access provides your patients with the flexibility to choose the channel that best aligns to their unique and personal financial situations, and also simplifies the pump initiation process for your office.
The Omnipod® System is the only full-featured insulin pump in the United States that is available through the pharmacy channel. Prescribing the Omnipod® System through the pharmacy channel can mean less paperwork for healthcare providers and faster turnaround for your patients. We currently have access through Express Scripts® and CVS/Caremark™, and are continuing to expand pharmacy access across the United States. To get your patient started, all that is required from you is an electronic prescription (eRx).
Medical Equipment Benefit
Like most other insulin pumps, the Omnipod® System is also available as durable medical equipment. To get your patient started, you will need to submit a Certificate of Medical Necessity alongside our Patient Information Form. Your patient’s insurance plan will dictate his or her coverage.
Benefits of the Pharmacy Channel
The pharmacy channel streamlines the prescription and delivery process for both healthcare providers and patients. Benefits include:
- No Durable Medical Equipment paperwork required
- Patients can fill their prescriptions online and conveniently receive them through mail order
- Patients may see out-of-pocket costs as low as $35 per month
