Understanding insurance benefits and out-of-pocket costs can be overwhelming and confusing. Don’t worry. Teva’s Shared Solutions® could be the resource you’re looking for! We have a dedicated team of Patient Access Specialists to answer your insurance questions related to COPAXONE® (glatiramer acetate injection).
To start, we’ll provide information on insurance deductibles and co-pays as well as how this affects you. A co-pay is your part of the prescription cost and depends on what type of insurance plan you have. Co-pays can vary widely.
- Some plans might have a deductible that you would have to satisfy before insurance will pay anything. Once you meet that deductible, your plan might have co-insurance, which is a certain percentage that both you and your insurance plan would pay.
- Certain plans could have a maximum out-of-pocket cost, which means you would pay a certain percentage (your co-insurance) until that out-of-pocket cost is met, and then the insurance would start paying 100% after that.
- Other plans just have a co-pay amount, which is the only cost that you would be responsible for paying.
We believe that you should not have to choose, interrupt, or discontinue your relapsing MS therapy because of financial reasons. Our goal is to help you find affordable access to COPAXONE®, as well as to help you understand your healthcare plan options.
Here are a few ways that we can lend a helping hand:
- We can conduct a benefits investigation to determine what your out-of-pocket costs might be for COPAXONE®.
- We provide pharmacy benefits research to help determine the most convenient way for you to receive Teva's COPAXONE®.
- We can assist in navigating Medicare Part D.
- We’re here to help if you have an insurance change, whether it is new insurance, a change in benefits, or a change in your pharmacy.
The good news is that eligible patients pay as little as $0 for COPAXONE®.* We'll help answer your questions about insurance and financial solutions related to taking COPAXONE®.

Ruth Doll | January 10, 2018I called the 800-887-8100 yesterday (1-9-18). I waited at least 35 minutes to speak with a customer representative. Finally a recording came on which said all representatives were busy, and I was redirected to leave my name and phone number for a call back. However, this mailbox was full and not accepting more callers. Then I was disconnected. I have been a copaxone user for over thirteen years.
