Your monthly Afstyla cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Afstyla patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Afstyla prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Afstyla patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Afstyla patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Afstyla patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Afstyla patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Afstyla. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Afstyla assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Afstyla patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Afstyla medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx an Afstyla coupon provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Afstyla patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Afstyla manufacturer coupons, Afstyla discounts, or free Afstyla samples. We are not an Afstyla coupon provider or Afstyla discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Afstyla cheaper if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Afstyla patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Afstyla medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much does Afstyla cost without insurance?

Afstyla cost without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it. As a guide, Afstyla intravenous powder for injection recombinant usually costs $11 for 1 powder for injection. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

How much does Afstyla cost with insurance?

The copay for Afstyla with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

What is Afstyla?

Afstyla is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by CSL Behring. Afstyla, antihemophilic factor (recombinant), single chain, is a recombinant, antihemophilic factor indicated in adults and children with hemophilia A (congenital Factor VIII deficiency) for:

  • On-demand treatment and control of bleeding disorder episodes
  • Routine prophylaxis to reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes
  • Perioperative management of bleeding

Afstyla is not recommended for the treatment of von Willebrand disease.

What doses of Afstyla are available?

Afstyla is available as a lyophilized powder in single-use vials containing nominally 250, 500, 1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, or 3000 International Units (IU).

The dose of Afstyla is based on body weight. For routine prophylaxis:

  • For adults and adolescents (12 years of age or older), the recommended starting regimen is 20-50 IU/kg 2 to 3 times weekly dosing
  • For children (<12 years), the recommended starting schedule is 30-50 IU/kg administered 2 to 3 times weekly.  More frequent or higher doses may be required in children <12 years of age due to the higher clearance in this age group

Please read the full prescribing information for all the product information and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Afstyla active ingredients

Afstyla contains antihemophilic factor (recombinant) as the active ingredient.

Afstyla side effects

The most common side effects of Afstyla in clinical trials include:

  • Dizziness, headache
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Injection site reactions

In rare instances, Afstyla can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis
  • The formation of neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) to Factor VIII

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Afstyla against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Afstyla to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Afstyla drug interactions

Other drugs may interact with Afstyla, including prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your health care provider about all of your medicines including any supplements you are taking.

Afstyla contraindications

You should not use Afstyla if you:

  • Have had an allergic reaction to the active ingredient antihemophilic factor (recombinant)
  • Have had life-threatening hypersensitivity reactions to any of the other ingredients in Afstyla or hamster proteins

Talk to your doctor before using Afstyla if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Afstyla
  • Have heart disease
  • Have a latex allergy
  • Have inhibitors to Factor VIII
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

Afstyla generic

Afstyla is the trademark brand name for antihemophilic factor (recombinant) manufactured by CSL Behring. A generic version of antihemophilic factor (recombinant) is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Afstyla savings through NiceRx.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
