From prescription to injection in 4 steps

When you are on SKYRIZI, you’re a key player in the treatment process. The graphic below will help you better understand the important role you play. You can also download a version of it here to put in a prominent place to help you mark your progress.

STEPS 1 AND 2 ARE FOR YOUR FIRST INJECTION

YOUR PRESCRIPTION

A complex medicine like SKYRIZI requires a specialty pharmacy for special administration, storage, and handling. So your doctor writes your prescription and sends it to the specialty pharmacy (SPP).

Ask your doctor which SPP the prescription was sent to, and write down the name and phone number. Your doctor schedules your injection appointment.

YOUR INSURANCE AND PAYMENT

A 360 degree dollar sign

Your SPP receives the prescription from your doctor and contacts your insurance company. Your insurance company validates your coverage and authorizes payment for SKYRIZI.

Expect a call from your SPP. Arrange for your co-pay and confirm where your SKYRIZI is being delivered.

STEPS 3 AND 4 ARE FOR ALL INJECTIONS

YOUR SKYRIZI ARRIVES

SPP fills your prescription and delivers SKYRIZI to your home or your doctor’s office.

If SKYRIZI is delivered to your home, keep it refrigerated until your appointment or in-home injection. Or, if your medicine is being delivered to your doctor’s office, call a few days in advance to confirm that it has arrived.

GETTING YOUR INJECTION

Go to your doctor’s office to receive your injection, or inject at home on your scheduled day.

Mark down the date of your next injection on your calendar or use the Skyrizi Complete App.
