Doctor Nurse

If your health plan does not approve RISPERDAL CONSTA® treatment

Sometimes you may not be able to obtain the medication that your doctor has prescribed for you. For example, your health plan might not cover the medication because it is not on the plan’s drug list (formulary) or the cost is higher than you think you should have to pay. In these situations, you and your doctor have the right to ask the health plan to explain its decision and to consider making the medication available to you as an exception to its policies.
