This program is available to all patients who meet the following criteria:
≥12 years old with confirmed diagnosis of HAE
Received a prescription for TAKHZYRO
Commercially insured in the US
To enroll your patients in the Quick Start Program, a commercial insurance investigation must be initiated by filling out the TAKHZYRO Start Form.

Shire and its affiliates reserve the right to change or discontinue this program at any time, without notice. Void where prohibited by law. This program does not constitute a financial assistance program.
2 simple steps
To get your patients started right away
1. Print and fill out these 2 FORMS completely:
2. Fax BOTH forms to OnePath
Once BOTH forms are received by OnePath:
Your patient’s dedicated Patient Support Manager will call your patient promptly to:
- Confirm all forms are complete
- Coordinate shipment of TAKHZYRO
- Schedule in-home self-administration training led by a specially trained nurse, if requested
The benefits investigation will be conducted. Prior authorization/appeal, if required, will begin.
A 1-month supply of TAKHZYRO will be shipped to your patient once eligibility requirements have been confirmed and the specialty pharmacy verifies the prescription with your office†
Once your patient's commercial insurance coverage for TAKHZYRO is approved, he/she will no longer be eligible for the Quick Start Program.
†Once eligibility has been confirmed, a 1-month supply of TAKHZYRO will be shipped to your patient. Patients are eligible for up to 2 months of product at no cost, with the potential for an approval process for continued supply of the product after the second month.
