Am I eligible for the Cycloset patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Cycloset patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, the factors considered by most programs are:

Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Cycloset. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Cycloset assistance, we will handle the application process for you. 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 Cycloset patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Cycloset medication refills for up to 1 year.
