I am the founder and CEO of Acorda Therapeutics, and a board-certified internist. I started Acorda to contribute to patient care, and my associates and I never take that privilege for granted.
I know these are challenging times for you, your practice, and your patients. Notwithstanding the hardships imposed by social distancing and the disruption of virtually every normal routine, your patients still need care, information, and support. I want to let you know what we have been doing to continue to provide support related to INBRIJA for your patients and you:
- Our field sales and medical teams are connecting digitally or by phone into physicians’ offices to provide educational materials and support, such as virtual speaker programs and responses to questions.
- We have engaged a team of nurse educators to connect with every new INBRIJA patient to review with them the appropriate use of INBRIJA. This is in addition to our customer support team, which continues to be available to help patients negotiate reimbursement and answer other questions regarding INBRIJA. You and your patients may access them at 1-888-887-3447.
- If you want to submit a prescription and don’t have access to your office fax, please call Prescription Support Services at 1-888-887-3447 for assistance.
- Your office may order and receive samples of INBRIJA without an office visit by your Acorda sales representative. Please contact your sales representative or visit www.inbrija-hcp.com/request-representative.
- We also offer commercially insured patients a free trial of one carton of INBRIJA. If you wish to start an eligible patient on this free trial, you may download the form here.
- We recently enhanced our patient training materials with “Helpful Hints” and an updated video. You and your patients can find these here.
In addition to providing support from our field team, Acorda’s Chief Medical Officer, Burkhard Blank, and I would also be pleased to have you contact us directly any time you would like to bring something to our attention personally, or if you have ideas about how we can better serve you, your practice, and the community. We may be reached at the email addresses and numbers below.
