How BMS Access Support® May Help

We understand that healthcare coverage can be confusing and costly. Your doctor's office plays a key role in the coverage process, but BMS Access Support can help too.

Our services include:

Understanding Your Insurance Plan

BMS Access Support can conduct a Benefits Review. This will typically determine what is covered by your insurance plan, whether there are any restrictions, and how much money you may have to pay to get your medication (out-of-pocket expenses). A Benefits Review will identify whether you need a Prior Authorization.

Understanding Insurance Procedures

BMS Access Support can help with Prior Authorizations and Claims Appeals.

  • Prior Authorizations
    A Prior Authorization (PA) is a verification from your doctor that states that your medication is medically necessary. Your insurance company may require a PA before they will cover certain medications. BMS Access Support can provide information about this requirement. A PA is not necessary in all cases.
  • Claims Appeals
    Almost all health insurers have a special process to appeal a coverage decision. BMS Access Support can provide information about this process. In this case, you and/or your doctor would prepare paperwork to support the appeal.

Finding Financial Help to Pay for Your Medication

BMS Access Support has programs and services available that may help with the cost of treatment, including co-pay programs for eligible patients. See what options may be available to you.
