  • 2In 2022, Accredo coordinated more than $2.3 billion in copay assistance for qualified patients. (Accredo book of business data, 2022. Total includes manufacturer and charitable programs.)

Specialty medications can cost a lot of money. That’s why Express Scripts offers a copay assistance benefit administered by SaveOnSP, which can help you lower your out-of-pocket costs.

Over 325 specialty medications are eligible for this plan benefit. If you’re filling an eligible medication, a representative from SaveOnSP will contact you to support your enrollment in copay assistance and arrange for the monitoring of your account. You’ll pay $0 for specialty medications on the SaveOnSP drug list, when you participate in the plan benefit by enrolling in copay assistance and consenting to monitoring. If you choose not to participate in the plan benefit, you’ll pay a higher cost share when you fill your medication.

You can pay by debit or credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa), with your checking account, or through a flexible spending account (FSA). You may also send a check via mail to: Accredo Health, Inc., PO Box 954041, St. Louis, MO 63195.
