Share Your Story: Have you been impacted by a copay accumulator program?

Co-pay accumulators or accumulator adjustment programs are relatively new policies that some pharmacy benefit managers and insurers are using to prohibit manufacturer copayment cards or other forms of manufacturer assistance from being used to pay down a patient’s deductible or out-of-pocket maximum.

Patients who utilize copay coupons from pharmaceutical companies have previously been allowed to count the amount of the coupons (often thousands of dollars) towards their deductible or out-of-pocket maximum. Co-pay accumulator policies prohibit that practice and the amount of assistance a patient receives from a pharmaceutical company may no longer count to help a patient meet their deductible or out-of-pocket maximum.
