Ready to join a team committed to moving gene therapies into the clinical setting for patients and families devastated by rare neurological genetic diseases? AveXis is advancing cutting-edge science to treat rare and life-threatening genetic diseases—starting with our clinical-stage, proprietary gene therapy candidate, AVXS-101. We are at the beginning of an incredible journey and are looking for passionate individuals to join us on this important mission.
AveXis, Inc. is a clinical-stage gene therapy company, dedicated to developing and commercializing novel treatments for patients suffering from rare and life-threatening neurological genetic diseases. Our initial product candidate, AVXS-101, is our proprietary gene therapy product currently in development for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy, or SMA, the leading genetic cause of infant mortality. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has granted AVXS-101 Orphan Drug Designation for the treatment of all types of SMA and Breakthrough Therapy Designation, as well as Fast Track Designation for the treatment of SMA Type 1. In addition to developing AVXS-101 to treat SMA Type 1 and Type 2, we also plan to develop other novel treatments for rare neurological diseases, including Rett syndrome (RTT) and a genetic form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) caused by mutations in the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) gene.
As the primary liaison between the company’s patient enrollment hub and both patients and designated SMA treatment centers, the Field Reimbursement Manager (FRM) will be responsible for ensuring the broadest possible patient access in a reasonable amount of time. The FRM must be a true partner to all internal and external stakeholders such as the Directors of National Accounts (payors), Sales Key Accounts Managers, patient-facing Family Experience Managers, as well as Care Coordinators at the Hub and physicians, nurses, and office staff at SMA treatment centers.
The FRM will diligently follow each prescription through the enrollment, reimbursement, and distribution pathway, ensuring the best possible customer service, communicating plan-specific reimbursement criteria to prescribers and helping them navigate insurance obstacles, providing logistical support as necessary.
In turn, the FRM will be the key point of contact for prescribed patients, to answer questions about access to therapy, set expectations regarding timelines, and educate on available resources, keeping the patient’s family informed at each step of the process to therapy.
Excellent communication skills are required, as well as the ability to work with diverse personalities, tailoring a customer service approach to the particulars of each situation.
