How can Case Managers help support your patients?

Through AkebiaCares, Case Managers provide a variety of solutions, including:


Conduct a full benefit investigation and return a patient summary of benefits within 1 business day from receipt of the enrollment form.


Obtain information on specific coverage rules such as a Prior Authorization (PA), Medical Exception (ME), or step edit and initiate an ePA when it is available. If it's not available, Case Managers will provide payer-specific forms, criteria, and contact information with the Summary of Benefits.

Connect you with comprehensive resources and tools, such as PA, ME and appeal guidance, forms, communication templates, and Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) eligibility information with easy instructions on how to apply. Case Managers can also connect you with the Akebia Medical Information Team for your clinical or medical inquiries.
