It is important that every patient read and understand the full Amgen® SupportPlus
Co-Pay Card Terms and Conditions. The following summary is not a substitute for reviewing the Terms and Conditions in their entirety. Please visit www.AmgenSupportPlus.com for full Terms and Conditions.
As further described below, in general:
For Otezla® (apremilast) patients only:
*Eligibility Criteria: Subject to program limitations and terms and conditions,
the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card is open to patients who have been prescribed an Amgen SupportPlus product and who have commercial or private insurance that covers an Amgen SupportPlus product, including state and federal plans commonly referred to as “healthcare exchanges plans”. This program helps eligible patients cover out-of-pocket medication costs related to an Amgen SupportPlus product, up to program limits. The Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card does not cover any other costs related to office visits or administration of an Amgen SupportPlus product. There is no income requirement to participate in this program.
This offer is not valid for patients whose prescription for an Amgen SupportPlus product is paid for in whole or in part by Medicare, Medicaid, or any other federal or state healthcare program. It is not valid for cash-paying patients or where prohibited by law. A patient is considered cash-paying where the patient has no insurance coverage for an Amgen SupportPlus product or where the patient has commercial or private insurance but Amgen in its sole discretion determines the patient is effectively uninsured because such coverage does not provide a material level of financial assistance for the cost of an Amgen SupportPlus product prescription. This offer is only valid in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the US territories.
The Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card may modify the benefit amount, unilaterally determined by Amgen in its sole discretion, to satisfy the out-of-pocket cost sharing requirement for any patient whose plan or plan agent (including, but not limited to, a Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM)) requires enrollment in the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card as a condition of the plan or PBM waiving some or all of an otherwise applicable patient out-of-pocket cost sharing amount. These programs are often referred to as co-pay maximizer programs. If you believe your commercial insurance plan may have such limitations, please contact Amgen SupportPlus Support at 1-833-44AMGEN (1-833-442-6436). Health plans and Pharmacy Benefit Managers are prohibited from enrolling or assisting in the enrollment of patients in the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card. The patient, or his/her legal representative, must personally enroll in the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card in order to be eligible for program benefits.
If at any time a patient begins receiving coverage for medications under any federal, state, or government healthcare program (including but not limited to Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, Department of Defense, or Veteran Affairs programs), the patient will no longer be able to use this card and you must contact Amgen SupportPlus at 1-833-44AMGEN (1-833-442-6436) (Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm ET) to stop your participation in this program.
Patients may not seek reimbursement for the value received from the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card from any third-party payers, including a flexible spending account or healthcare savings account. Participating in this program means that you are ensuring you comply with any required disclosure regarding your participation in the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card of your insurance carrier or pharmacy benefit manager. Restrictions may apply. Offer subject to change or discontinuation without notice. This is not health insurance.
For all eligible patients the Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card offers:
For Otezla® (apremilast) patients only:
Maximum Program Benefit, Patient Total Program Benefit, Benefits May Change, End or Vary Without Notice: The program provides up to a Maximum Program Benefit of support to reduce a patient's out-of-pocket medication costs that Amgen will provide per patient for each calendar year, which must be applied to the Amgen SupportPlus patient's out-of-pocket costs (co-pay, deductible, or co-insurance and annual out-of-pocket maximum). Patient Total Program Benefit amounts are unilaterally determined by Amgen in its sole discretion and will not exceed the Maximum Program Benefit. The Patient Total Program Benefit may be less than the Maximum Program Benefit, depending on the terms of a patient's plan, and may vary among individual patients covered by different plans, based on factors determined solely by Amgen, to ensure all programs funds are used for the benefit of the patient. Each patient is responsible for costs above the Patient Total Program Benefit amounts. Please ask your Amgen SupportPlus Support Representative to help you understand whether your particular insurance coverage is likely to result in your reaching the Maximum Program Benefit or your Patient Total Program Benefit amount by calling 1-833-44AMGEN (1-833-442-6436). Participating patients are solely responsible for updating Amgen with changes to their insurance including, but not limited to, initiation of insurance provided by the government, the addition of any coverage terms that do not apply Amgen SupportPlus Co-Pay Card benefits to reduce a patient's out-of-pocket costs, such as accumulator adjustment benefit design or a co-pay maximization program. Participating patients are responsible for providing Amgen with accurate information necessary to determine program eligibility. By accepting payments from Amgen made on behalf of participating patients, participating PBMs and Plans likewise are responsible for providing Amgen with accurate information regarding patient eligibility.
Patients may use the card every time they receive a prescription fill, dose or cycle of the Amgen SupportPlus product, up to the Maximum Program Benefit or Patient Total Program Benefit. Benefits reset each calendar year. Re-enrollment in the program is required at regular intervals. Patients may continue in the program as long as patient re-enrolls as required by Amgen and continues to meet all of the program’s eligibility requirements during participation in the program. Patients can enroll/reenroll by calling 1-833-44AMGEN (1-833-442-6436).
Prescription Enbrel® (etanercept) is taken (given) by injection.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
What is the most important information I should know about ENBREL?
ENBREL is a medicine that affects your immune system. ENBREL can lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections. Serious infections have happened in patients taking ENBREL. These infections include tuberculosis (TB) and infections caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria that have spread throughout the body. Some patients have died from these infections. Your healthcare provider should test you for TB before you take ENBREL and monitor you closely for TB before, during, and after ENBREL treatment, even if you have tested negative for TB.
There have been some cases of unusual cancers, some resulting in death, reported in children and teenage patients who started using tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers before 18 years of age. Also, for children, teenagers, and adults taking TNF blockers, including ENBREL, the chances of getting lymphoma or other cancers may increase. Patients with RA may be more likely to get lymphoma.

Common side effects include: Injection site reactions and upper respiratory infections (sinus infections).
In general, side effects in children were similar in frequency and type as those seen in adult patients. The types of infections reported were generally mild and similar to those usually seen in children.
These are not all the side effects with ENBREL. Tell your healthcare provider about any side effect that bothers you or does not go away.
