Financial & Insurance Assistance
The goal of Albireo Assist is to help make Bylvay treatment affordable and available to those who have been prescribed it. Your Albireo Assist Care Coordinator can help make obtaining Bylvay easier for you by evaluating your health insurance and helping with the coverage process.
Your Care Coordinator can evaluate your benefits, deductibles, and copay or coinsurance, and can help secure the paperwork used by insurance companies to determine whether they will cover the cost of a prescribed medicine (known as prior authorization), as well as helping with any other requirements.
We know that paying for treatment can sometimes be a challenge. There may be financial assistance programs available to you. Once you are signed up with Albireo Assist, you will be automatically enrolled in the financial assistance programs for which you may be eligible. Your dedicated Care Coordinator can help you understand your insurance and coverage options, and programs for which you may be eligible.
Even with insurance, affording prescription medication can be difficult. If you qualify, your Care Coordinator can help you enroll in the Copay Assistance Program, which can help you get your Bylvay medication with less out-of-pocket cost. This option, which could bring your copay to as little as $0, is available for some people who have commercial or private health insurance and meet the eligibility requirements.*
*This Copay Program is not valid for prescriptions that are eligible to be reimbursed, in whole or in part, by Medicaid, Medicare (including Part D), Medigap, VA, DoD, Tricare or other federal or state healthcare programs (including any state prescription drug assistance programs). The Program is not valid for prescriptions that are eligible to be reimbursed by private insurance plans or other health or pharmacy benefit programs which reimburse you for the entire cost of your prescription drugs. Benefits payable under this program may not exceed the annual maximum permitted by Program rules. Contact 855-252-4736 for details. See the full TERMS AND CONDITIONS at the bottom of this page.

Dedicated, Live Support
When you enroll in Albireo Assist, you will be contacted by your Care Coordinator, who will be your primary contact with the program. Your Care Coordinator has training and experience with the healthcare system and with rare diseases, so they understand the challenges you may be facing.
Your Care Coordinator is regionally based and is fully dedicated to your case and to helping you along this journey. Most importantly, they are experienced professionals who are ready to help with personalized support based on your situation.
Here are just a few of the kinds of issues your Care Coordinator can help with:
- Questions about your health insurance coverage for Bylvay
- Helping handle some of the details and paperwork involved with getting the medication covered by insurance
- Information about financial assistance programs that may be available
- Getting information about the next refill or other information from the specialty pharmacy who handles the prescription
- Making sure the specialty pharmacy knows where to send the medication
- Providing information on support groups, community resources, and patient meetings
If you have questions, let us know and we'll help get some answers. Your Care Coordinator is just a phone call or email away. Call 855-ALBIREO (855-252-4736) or contact your Care Coordinator at their direct number or email address.
Bylvay is available only through Albireo Assist specialty pharmacy partners. Your Care Coordinator will connect you to a specialty pharmacy who will fill the prescription each month and deliver it directly to you—even if you are traveling or moving.
Situations change and we’re here to help navigate those changes so that they don’t have an impact on treatment. If you change jobs, change doctors, change insurance, or change locations, just let us know—we’ll work to help make sure that these changes don’t affect getting the medication.
Your Care Coordinator is here to help with those kinds of logistics. Call 855-ALBIREO (855-252-4736) or contact your Care Coordinator at their direct number or email address.
