However, patients covered by government plans like Medicare and Medicaid do not qualify for the co-pay assistance, CEO, Frank Baldino, pointed out in the call.

Cephalon also developed a data base of approximately 50,000 individuals who requested information on Nuvigil and mailed "these people a launch kit, with a free seven-day coupon and information on our Co-Pay Assistance Program," he said.

The company also planned to implement an online, "Wake Information Support and Education Program," as part of a professional education and support campaign designed for doctors in the sleep/wake field, Roche reported. "In addition to information on sleep and wakefulness issues, physicians can, with just a click of a mouse get information on NUVIGIL, order samples, request coupons, ask questions, or request to see a sales representative," he explained.

In the first quarter of 2010, Cephalon also launched a Nuvigil shift work disorder campaign. There are "15 million shift workers in the United States and approximately 1/3 of them suffer from excessive sleepiness associated with shift work disorder," Baldino reported in a May 4, 2010 Earnings Call.
