COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Infusion Information for Providers and Patients

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the rapid spread of the omicron variant, and the limited supply of  sotrovimab monoclonal antibody therapy, we are currently allocating these therapies based on risk stratification guidance from the NIH and the Whatcom County Health Department. At this time, it is not possible for us to fulfill all of the referral requests for monoclonal antibodies due to drug supply shortages. We get 12 doses per week at present, and work with local providers to increase this amount as we are able. Only patients in risk pools 1 and 2 are currently being treated. To help you identify the right patients, here is a link to that information published by the NIH: https://www.covid19treatmentguidelines.nih.gov/therapies/statement-on-patient-prioritization-for-outpatient-therapies/

As allocations of sotrovimab increase, we will expand our treatment capacity. Updated Jan 14, 2022.

For Providers:

  • You can find our printable order form on our website under the “referrals” tab, or here: https://infusionsolutionsinc.com/download/referral-forms/F379-COVID-Monoclonal-Antibody-Order-Form_2.pdf
  • Fax order form and patient demographics/insurance information to our office at 360-933-1197
  • Please note: we are NOT offering exposure/prophylactic monoclonal antibody infusions at this time
  • To avoid treatment delays, please make sure you include all the necessary information on the order form:
    • Insurance information/copy of insurance card / SSN if known
    • Height, weight, and allergies
    • Current Medication list
    • Date of symptom onset, date of COVID positive test, and vaccination status (if known)
    • Appropriate eligibility criteria checked.

General expectations for patients:

  • Once we get an order from your provider, we will call you and confirm that you are interested in moving forward with the infusion. Medicare established the cost of this infusion, which is $450. If you have Medicare (or Medicaid), you are fully covered. If you have commercial insurance, this will be billed to your plan, and your specific co-pays and deductibles will apply.
  • At this time, we are only offering monoclonal antibody infusions for COVID positive patients, so you MUST have a COVID positive test result. We are currently not offering this infusion for prophylactic exposure to COVID 19.
  • Our goal is to schedule you between 24-48 hours from the time we make initial contact with you. Please understand that we do our best to meet this expectation. Multiple calls to our office do not help to expedite your time slot—we are prioritizing patients based on CDC guidelines and do our utmost to fit everybody in accordingly. Please be patient and let our staff do their work with minimal disruptions. We will call you!
  • Once scheduled, you will receive a COVID pre-screen call on the day of your infusion. Please answer your phone to save treatment delays.
  • The infusion takes place at our Bellingham office, which is located at 477 W. Horton Rd. Our COVID clinic is accessed via our back parking lot, opposite the front entrance. There are green arrows in our parking lot directing you where to go. Once parked, just knock on the signed door and we will escort you in!
  • The appointment is approximately 2 hours long, 45 minutes for the infusion and 1 hour of monitoring afterwards. This is a one-time infusion, designed to help your immune system better fight off COVID 19. There are three monoclonal antibodies that are approved for Emergency Use: REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab), BAM (bamlanivimab and etesevimab), Xevudy (sotrovimab). We are following guidance from the WA State Department of Health regarding which product to administer, but please note that sotrovimab is recognized as effective against the omicron variant.  General information about these therapies can be found on the CDC website: https://www.cms.gov/medicare/covid-19/monoclonal-antibody-covid-19-infusion
