  2. Your eligibility is verified.
  3. You will receive a call to schedule your next injection at a location and time that is convenient for you.
  4. MAP nurse who is specially trained in the mixing and administration of Signifor LAR meets you at a convenient time and place and gives the injection, makes the next appointment, following up with a reminder, and notifies your doctor that you received your injection.

 

Important Things to Know About the Mobile Administration Program

 

  • MAP does not replace your doctor's care; you should still go to your doctor for check ups
  • If you are new to Signifor LAR, your first dose must be received in your doctor's office

The Mobile Administration Program (MAP) is generally available to commercially insured patients for whom Signifor LAR has been prescribed for an FDA-approved indication. The Program is not available for residents of Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, or Rhode Island.

Through MAP, a nurse will administer your Signifor LAR injections at a time and location convenient for you:

 

  • You can be confident that you will receive the right dose, at the right time
  • You have the comfort of knowing that a MAP nurse who is specially trained in the mixing and administration of Signifor LAR will come to your home or office to administer Signifor LAR
  • The Program nurse will let your doctor know that you received your injection
  • The MAP nurse will make the next appointment and follow up with a reminder

This program lets you receive therapy beyond the traditional office hours if you prefer. Evenings and weekends may be possible too, even when you are traveling out of town.

A MAP nurse who is specially trained in the mixing and administration of Signifor LAR is selected to administer your Signifor LAR injections. All the nurses in the program have been fully instructed and evaluated in their knowledge of the prescribing information for Signifor LAR, and the mixing and injection process. All nurses in the program are continuously monitored by Nurse Coordinators and are in regular contact with your prescribing doctor.

You can continue to get your prescription for Signifor LAR in the way you normally do. Insurance coverage for the drug is independent of coverage eligibility for home injections. Depending on your pharmacy coverage, the drug may be shipped to your home or local pharmacy for pickup. These details can be worked out with a case coordinator, and you can tell your coordinator what delivery option is most convenient for you.

 

NOTE: Signifor LAR must be refrigerated immediately upon receipt and until use.

Yes. Office visits and biochemical testing will still occur at appropriate intervals as determined by your doctor. The MAP program is for the administration of Signifor LAR only and does not take the place of regularly scheduled visits with your doctor.

No. The enrollment form, which you can download here, will be filled out at the doctor's office, signed by you, and sent to the company that administers the program. After this, most of the communication takes place by phone. The nurse coordinator calls you to schedule your injection appointment.
