IS SUPARTZ FX COVERED?

Just like other viscosupplements, SUPARTZ FX therapy is covered by Medicare and eligible for private plan coverage for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. However, it may not be covered by your insurance. Each insurance carrier decides which, if any, product it will cover.

Before initiating SUPARTZ FX therapy, call your insurance provider or have your doctor’s office check on your behalf.

If SUPARTZ FX therapy is not covered by your health plan, talk to your doctor about your options for treatment.

SUPARTZ FX is indicated for treatment of pain in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conservative non-pharmacologic therapy and simple analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen. You should not use SUPARTZ FX if you have infections or skin diseases at the injection site or allergies to poultry products. SUPARTZ FX is not approved for pregnant or nursing women, or children. Risks can include general knee pain, warmth and redness or pain at the injection site. Full prescribing information can be found here or by contacting customer service at
