The following steps will help you better understand the process of getting started with and staying on Taltz.

If you’re commercially insured and have enrolled in Taltz Together, your prescription will be authorized and shipped to you. Your doctor may then send your prescription to Taltz Together, where someone will be able to help you navigate the insurance approval process.
Prescriptions for Taltz need to be filled by a specialty pharmacy, so sometimes processing your prescription may take a little longer.
2. YOU’VE BEEN APPROVED— NOW EXPECT A CALL!
Taltz Together will inform you as to which specialty pharmacies can fill your prescription. The specialty pharmacy then calls you to set up delivery of Taltz to your home. To ensure delivery, please be sure to answer any calls, as it might be your specialty pharmacy.

Or, if you prefer, you can arrange with the specialty pharmacy to pick it up in person or at your doctor’s office.
