XOLAIR Access Solutions is a patient assistance program from Genentech that helps people who are taking XOLAIR. To apply, you must complete and submit the Patient Consent Form in your doctor's office. You can also access and submit the form online. Your doctor must also complete a form called the XOLAIR Prescriber Service form. Once XOLAIR Access Solutions has the Patient Consent Form and the XOLAIR Prescriber Service Form, it can begin working with you and your doctor’s office.
Your doctor's office will work with XOLAIR Access Solutions or a Specialty Pharmacy to check:
Someone from XOLAIR Access Solutions or your specialty pharmacy might call to talk about XOLAIR. Due to privacy laws, if they leave a message to call back, they will not say it is about XOLAIR.
Make sure you return all calls from Access Solutions or the specialty pharmacy, in order to get XOLAIR without any delays.
What is a Specialty Pharmacy?
A Specialty Pharmacy supplies certain medicines for patients. Some plans require you to use a certain Specialty Pharmacy to receive your medicine. Specialty Pharmacies send your medicine to your doctor’s office. They may also offer other services, such as referrals to patient assistance.
Even with health insurance, you may still have concerns about the treatment cost.
If you need help paying for XOLAIR, there may be options to help. Access Solutions can refer you to the right financial assistance option.
XOLAIR Access Solutions works with your doctor's office and specialty pharmacy to deliver XOLAIR to your doctor's office or injection location. You should make an appointment to receive XOLAIR. Your specialty pharmacy might call you to confirm shipping details. After you've established treatment in a doctor's office or infusion center, your doctor will determine if you or your caregiver may inject XOLAIR. If your doctor decides that you or a caregiver may be able to give your own XOLAIR prefilled syringe injections, you should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject XOLAIR.
Please note: Your XOLAIR might not come from a specialty pharmacy. Instead, your doctor might buy XOLAIR and get paid by your health plan for the cost of the medicine. This process is called “buy and bill.”
What is XOLAIR? XOLAIR® (omalizumab) for subcutaneous use is an injectable prescription medicine used to treat chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU, previously referred to as chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU), chronic hives without a known cause) in people 12 years of age and older who continue to have hives that are not controlled with H1 antihistamine treatment. It is not known if XOLAIR is safe and effective in people with CSU under 12 years of age.
XOLAIR is not used to treat other forms of hives.
What is the most important information I should know about XOLAIR? Severe allergic reaction. A severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis can happen when you receive XOLAIR. The reaction can occur after the first dose, or after many doses. It may also occur right after a XOLAIR injection or days later. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening condition and can lead to death. Go to the nearest emergency room right away if you have any of these symptoms of an allergic reaction:
Your healthcare provider will monitor you closely for symptoms of an allergic reaction while you are receiving XOLAIR and for a period of time after treatment is initiated. Your healthcare provider should talk to you about getting medical treatment if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction.
Do not receive and use XOLAIR if you are allergic to omalizumab or any of the ingredients in XOLAIR.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
The most common side effects of XOLAIR in people with chronic spontaneous urticaria: nausea, headaches, swelling of the inside of your nose, throat or sinuses, cough, joint pain, and upper respiratory tract infection.
These are not all the possible side effects of XOLAIR. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
