Dea Belazi, PharmD, Vice President, Payer & Healthcare Solutions, Source Healthcare Analytics, says a copay assistance program is primarily sponsored or supported by a pharmaceutical manufacturer. It is intended to provide financial assistance to those patients who require a particular brand of product made by the manufacturer. In improving adherence, a more affordable option helps patients pay for their required drugs.

“If a patient is suffering or is challenged by financial issues with costs in a particular branded product made a manufacturer, “ said Dr Belazi, “the idea is the copay program can support that and therefore make it more financially viable or affordable for the patient to get the product.”
