In order for your family member to receive PALFORZIA in a timely manner, the prescription must be fulfilled by a REMS-certified specialty pharmacy. These specialty pharmacies have been certified to dispense medications like PALFORZIA and are different from your usual pharmacy. After receiving the prescription, the specialty pharmacy ships the drug to your location, selected by your healthcare provider.
Note: Your child, your child's allergist, and your child's allergist’s practice must be enrolled in the PALFORZIA REMS Program before getting your child's prescription.
If your child’s allergist prescribed PALFORZIA, he or she will send your child’s prescription to our support program, PALFORZIA Pathway, or directly to a specialty pharmacy.
Your child's insurance eligibility and other requirements will be evaluated.
If your child’s insurance has been confirmed, the specialty pharmacy may reach out to you (keep an eye out for a toll-free number) to confirm the PALFORZIA shipment details.
After you have confirmed shipment details, the specialty pharmacy will ship the drug to your confirmed shipment location.
