Important information: verify benefit type

For commercially insured patients, VIVITROL may be covered under the pharmacy benefit, medical benefit, or both.

Providers and office staff, be sure to verify the patient’s insurance to confirm how VIVITROL is covered. Note that your patient may have a separate pharmacy (prescriptions) benefit.

If VIVITROL is covered as a pharmacy benefit (or by BOTH pharmacy and medical), submit prescriptions to the specialty pharmacy (SP) designated by the patient’s pharmacy benefit.

If there is no pharmacy benefit coverage for VIVITROL, submit to a specialty pharmacy associated with the patient’s medical benefit (insurer).

Close this pop-up and continue below for the list of pharmacies associated with the patient’s medical benefit.
