Prescribing OSMOLEX® ER (amantadine) for Your Patients
OSMOLEX ER is not available in retail pharmacies. Each patient must be enrolled through AccessOsmolex™, a program designed to provide access and financial support to patients.
Instructions for Healthcare Providers
Once you have identified an OSMOLEX ER patient, follow these steps to process a prescription through the AccessOsmolex Support Center.
- 1 Ensure patient consent is given to enroll in the AccessOsmolex program. You have the option of having the patient sign the patient consent form to send along with the enrollment and prescription form, or AccessOsmolex will call the patient to gain verbal consent.
- 2 Fill out enrollment and prescription form completely and include a copy of the patient’s insurance card (front and back).
- 3 Include Medical Information on the form or accompanying the form.
- 4 Ensure the Prescription Information portion is completed for Initial and/or Maintenance Dose. If one dose will not be utilized, check the box indicating that the dose will not be utilized.
- 5 Ensure the Prescriber Named in Section 3 has signed the Enrollment and Prescription form. Stamps are not permitted.
- 6 Fax all necessary documents to AccessOsmolex at 1-866-750-9516.
Do you typically prescribe electronically?
- E-scribe in your patient's electronic medical record (EMR) and choose to print the Rx form instead of electronically submit. EMR will have a record of the prescription.
- Scan in the AccessOsmolex Enrollment and Prescription form and it will be a part of the medical record.

OSMOLEX ER offers affordable out-of-pocket
costs for your patients2,3‡
Average Monthly Out-of-Pocket Costs for All Medications
Specialty or Non-Preferred/Tier 4 Medicare requires patients to pay 25% to 33% coinsurance for Specialty Tier products. Non-Preferred products require a coinsurance of 24% to 50%.
Preferred/Tier 2 or 3 OSMOLEX ER expected coverage§
‡The Medicare threshold for drugs to qualify for placement on a specialty tier is $670 for a 1-month supply of the drug. Tier placement is ultimately based on the contract with individual insurance plans. Products with a list price (Wholesale Acquisition Cost [WAC]) over $670 are not necessarily placed on Specialty Tier for all plans. The average copayments for commercial patients are among covered workers in plans with 3 or more tiers of cost sharing for prescription drugs.
§The expected tier placement of OSMOLEX ER is based on the WAC and contract negotiations with insurance plans.
