After you and your doctor decide taking NUCALA at home is right for you my biggest tip for other people would be…

ONSCREEN TEXT:
You need a team working behind you.

JENNA:
…that in order to make this all happen, you need a team working behind you. Talking with your doctor first, and then having your insurance, your specialty pharmacy, even down to the shipping company used,

JENNA:
…and Gateway to NUCALA. And it helps organize all of this to happen in the right way. For me personally, I'm a pretty organized, on-top-of-it person, and having a team behind you can make this a smooth transition. And I know it’s different for everyone.

KEVIN:
The important thing for me was finding out about Gateway to NUCALA. Gateway to NUCALA is a very helpful resource, especially when it comes to navigating the insurance. There were some days that I just really needed to talk to a real person.
And they were there. One thing I would like to tell people is to be on the lookout from a call from your specialty pharmacy. They’re just trying to make sure that you get your medication on time, and to clarify all your delivery dates and instructions.
