We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Bimzelx patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Bimzelx medication refills for up to 1 year.
