From the moment your doctor prescribes Acthar Gel, you’ll be supported every step of the way. To begin the process, a Case Manager will call to get you started and provide an overview of the process for obtaining Acthar Gel.

Patient Support for Acthar Gel

Mallinckrodt is committed to helping you from prescription to treatment.

Your doctor will send your Acthar Gel prescription to the Acthar Hub, which is a no-cost resource that provides information about benefits, insurance coverage, and home delivery of medication. A personal Case Manager is assigned to support you throughout the process.
Your Case Manager at the Acthar Hub will work with your doctor and insurance company to determine your eligibility for coverage, and will work through any plan requirements and/or approvals. Responding to the plan requirements may take some time, but your Case Manager will help you through this process.
You may receive calls from your Case Manager to request additional information and to provide you with status updates. Be sure to answer calls from any toll-free number or blocked caller, as they may be someone contacting you regarding your prescription for Acthar.
If approved, the Specialty Pharmacy will call you to schedule delivery of your medication and will track the shipment.
Acthar Gel will be delivered to your door.

Let your Case Manager know if you need additional support.
