How the Pfizer Bridge Program works

Your doctor prescribes SOMAVERT and, with your permission, submits your information on a SOMAVERT Patient Enrollment Form and the insurance information they have in your file to the Pfizer Bridge Program*.

Your Patient Care Consultant (PCC) contacts you to:

  • Get any additional information that is needed
  • Answer your insurance or reimbursement questions

You can help speed the process by having the following current information ready when your PCC calls:

  • A copy of your insurance card, which you can get from your employer or insurance company
  • The policy holder's name, address, and date of birth

Your PCC verifies your coverage and requests treatment authorization for SOMAVERT, if your insurance company allows. If your insurance company has approved the medicine, your PCC sends the prescription to the pharmacy, and the pharmacy contacts you to set up delivery of SOMAVERT directly to your home.

Your PCC will look for other ways to help get coverage if your insurance benefits do not cover therapy with SOMAVERT. Your PCC may also help you appeal the decision. This means he or she asks your insurance company to extend your coverage to include SOMAVERT treatment.

Calls about insurance reimbursement are welcome during the hours of 9 AM to 7 PM Eastern Time at 1-800-645-1280.
