Xyrem reimbursement assistance
jce1978 posted:
Hello, I'm new to this forum but have read a number of posts regarding Xyrem. After 20 years of having a sleep disorder (early-morning awakening) and seeing numerous specialists, I'm ready to ask my physician to prescribe Xyrem so that I can get a good night's sleep. A number of posters in other forums have complained (rightfully so) about the exorbitant cost of Xyrem. I have no prescription drug coverage, and the Xyrem website indicates "Reimbursement assistance is available for U.S. patients who are uninsured or underinsured, through the XYREM Success Program®." I haven't seen any postings regarding the success of this reimbursement program. Does anyone have any experience (positive or negative) regarding Jazz Pharmaceuticals' willingness to help uninsured people obtain this drug? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Jce1978!

It sounds like you've researched this really well. I'd encourage you to call the company and ask for details about their XYREM Success Program. Then you can decide whether or not it's something you want to move forward with.

Make sure to let your doctor know if you decide to apply so you're both on the same page. He or she may also be able to let you know about other patients who may have applied to the program and their success rates.

Hopefully one of our members will jump in here and share their story, too.

Best wishes!
