Gilead Complera Copay assistance
« on: July 10, 2014, 03:27:59 PM »
Hi guys

Recently diagnosed, my ID specialist and I have decided that I start treatment. We discussed many options and decided Complera was my best fit.

My private insurance covers all but 25% left as my copay (roughly $250). I was told by my case manager to fill an application out for the Gilead Copay assistance.

So my question is, anyone else have experience with this? What outcomes (financially) did it hwlp with?

Any other info?

In my case, I have quite a sizable insurance deductible ($5000) which has not been met yet. The first month of supply of Complera was a little over $2000 and since the deductible was not met I was responsible for the entire $2000. Gilead paid $400 so my out of pocket was $1600. Gilead will continue to pay $400/month until I meet my deductible. After that my co-pay will be $100 per month and Gilead will pay all of it so hopefully my out of pocket at that point will be $0.

So in short, Gilead pays 'up to' $400 for each monthly prescription refill in my case. In fact, my doctor gave me the Gilead co-pay card. All I had to do was to call a number listed on the card and get it activated. The whole process took about 10 minutes.

In your case, Gilead co-pay assistance should pay for the entire $250 so your out of pocket should be zero.

My pharmacist gave me a card (but you don't need the card)... Then I went online and activated it here:

My copy's was $100 and Complera card covered the whole thing so my med cost nothing...

Worked great with no problem!

Thanks for the replies!

I went online and signed up a little over a week ago and Gilead sent me the card in the mail. I hope to find out soon. I am in nursing school currently so I can't afford meicine right now :(.

They are right the co-pay card covers up to 400 a month... My co-pay is 100 so I pay nothing...
