Merz Dermatology Announces Enhanced Naftin Co-Payment Savings Program


Merz Dermatology, a division of Merz North America, launched an enhanced co-payment savings program for Naftin (naftifine HCl). The enhanced co-pay savings program for the Naftin family of products is specifically designed to benefit dermatology patients with high-deductible insurance plans. At the beginning of a new calendar year, patients with high-deductible plans are required by their insurer to pay significant out-of-pocket costs until their deductible is met. With this program, the majority of eligible insured patients can expect a co-pay of no more than $15 for a Naftin prescription. The enhanced co-payment savings program for the Naftin® family of products will continue through February 28, 2014, in order to benefit insured patients whose deductibles reset at the beginning of the calendar year. The original Naftinco-pay savings program will resume on March 1st, 2014. For more information, please visit

“Merz has a strong reputation in the dermatology space for delivering excellent, effective medical products. Amidst the complexities of the current managed care landscape, it is encouraging to realize that they are also committed to making those same products accessible and affordable,“ said Dr. Emil Tanghetti, President of the Center for Dermatology and Laser Surgery in Sacramento, California. “Patient-centric initiatives such as the Naftin® (naftifine HCl) co-payment savings program are clear evidence of Merz‘s ongoing leadership in medical dermatology.“

The most recent addition to the Merz Dermatology franchise is Naftin Gel 2%, which improves on the original formulation of Naftin Gel 1% by delivering the efficacy of naftifine hydochloride with a once-daily application treatment regimen.

“Merz is dedicated to advancing the quality of care in the medical dermatology space, and we are especially committed to facilitating patient access to effective, high-quality treatment options, regardless of the patient's financial situation,“ said Greg Besase, Vice President and Head of US Dermatology for Merz North America. “Our co-payment savings program is simply one more way for us to demonstrate our commitment to the patients and physicians who benefit from our medical dermatology products.“
