Complete and submit a start form
You must submit your patient’s prescription and a completed Epidiolex Engage start form to any in-network specialty pharmacy.
Epidiolex Engage Start Form
This form is necessary for specialty pharmacies to determine if they are within the payer’s preferred network for prescription fulfillment. If they are not, the prescription will be transferred to an Epidiolex Engage authorized specialty pharmacy in the payer’s network.
The form will also be necessary to establish the reimbursement status of EPIDIOLEX based on the patient’s insurance coverage.
If you do not know a preferred, authorized specialty pharmacy for your patient’s plan, you can find a specialty pharmacy using the link below or fax the start form and prescription to Epidiolex Engage.
Submit the prescription
Depending on your state’s e-prescribing rules, the supporting prescription may be electronically transmitted or faxed.
Prescriptions should include EPIDIOLEX by name to avoid rejection, as certain health plans and institutions may have policies regarding cannabis products/use that have not been updated since FDA approval of EPIDIOLEX.
Need help determining your patient’s dosage?
Once the prescription and start form have been received and approved by an Epidiolex Engage authorized specialty pharmacy, the pharmacy will be responsible for filling the prescription and contacting the patient directly to arrange shipment.
