Initial Product Shipment
& Refill Requests
Once your application is approved a product shipment will be sent to your licensed injector from the program’s Specialty Pharmacy. Each shipment will include a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 vials of Sculptra®.
You must then request additional product shipment (i.e. refills) during the enrollment or re-enrollment period by submitting a refill request. This request should include your case number and correspond with an active prescription on file at our Specialty Pharmacy to be approved. You may be required to re-attest to the information you supplied on your initial application to complete the request.
A minimum of 7 business days is needed for each shipment to be processed.

Apply to the program by submitting an application form with the following information about you:
