For US residents only.
At your home, office, or destination—trained nurses can administer your injection,* at no charge to you
As a patient receiving Sandostatin® LAR Depot (octreotide acetate) for injectable suspension therapy, you know how important it is to keep your regularly scheduled appointments and get your injections exactly as prescribed. That’s why the Mobile Administration Program (MAP) was developed—to make coordinating your treatment a little easier.
If your doctor recommends you as an appropriate patient to participate in the program and you’re eligible, you’ll be able to receive your injections at home, at work, or while you’re traveling, administered by a MAP nurse who is trained in the mixing and administration of Sandostatin LAR Depot. To take advantage of this convenient way to receive your injections:
* Limitations apply. Program available only for patients with commercial insurance. Program not available for patients insured by Medicare, Medicaid, or any other federal or state program. Program not available for residents of Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, or Rhode Island.
Important things to know about MAP
The MAP is available to all eligible patients for whom Sandostatin LAR Depot has been prescribed for a US Food and Drug Administration–approved indication.

Just 4 simple steps to receive your injections at home:
Your doctor recommends you for the program and submits your enrollment form.
Your eligibility is verified.
You will receive a call to schedule your next injection at your convenience.
MAP nurse who is specially trained in the mixing and administration of Sandostatin LAR Depot meets you at a convenient time and place and gives the injection, makes the next appointment, follows up with a reminder, and notifies your doctor that you received your injection.
MAP for Eligible Patients

Through MAP, a nurse will administer your Sandostatin LAR Depot injections at a time and location convenient for you:
This program lets you receive therapy beyond the traditional office hours, if you prefer. Evenings and weekends may be possible too, even when you are traveling out of town.

You can continue to get your prescription for Sandostatin LAR Depot in the way you normally do. Insurance coverage for the drug is independent of coverage eligibility for home injections. Depending on your prescription coverage, the drug may be shipped to your home or local pharmacy for pickup. Once you have obtained the medication the way you normally do, a nurse will then come to your home to administer the injection.
