Your monthly Aubagio cost savings if eligible

Am I eligible for the Aubagio patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Aubagio assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Aubagio patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Aubagio patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Aubagio.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Aubagio assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Aubagio patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Aubagio.

Is NiceRx an Aubagio coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Aubagio patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Aubagio samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Aubagio coupons, discount cards, or Aubagio copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Aubagio if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Aubagio medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much is Aubagio with insurance?

The cost of Aubagio will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Aubagio with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Aubagio cost without insurance?

Aubagio prices without insurance will vary depending on the quantity you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, 28 Aubagio tablets 7 mg typically cost $7900.

What is Aubagio?

Aubagio contains the prescription medicine teriflunomide. Aubagio is used to treat relapsing multiple sclerosis, including relapsing-remitting disease, clinically isolated syndrome, and active secondary progressive disease, in adults.

Aubagio acts on the immune system and also reduces inflammation and swelling in the nervous system. Aubagio however is not a cure for multiple sclerosis and it is not known if Aubagio is safe to use in children.

You may need to be tested before starting treatment to make sure you do not have tuberculosis or any other infections. Teriflunomide can reduce your blood cell count so you will need to be tested for this as well as your blood pressure regularly. You may need to take other medicines once you stop taking Aubagio, to help your body get rid of teriflunomide. Otherwise, teriflunomide can stay in your body for up to 2 years. This is especially important if you plan to become pregnant.

Aubagio active ingredients

Teriflunomide is classed as an immunomodulatory agent with anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it acts on the immune system but also reduces swelling. It blocks the effects of an enzyme called dihydroorotate dehydrogenase, which is involved in the initial production of pyrimidine. Pyrimidine is essential for the production of DNA and RNA in the body.

How exactly teriflunomide works in multiple sclerosis is not fully understood, but it is thought to reduce the number of white blood cells that have been activated by the presence of a foreign antigen in the Central Nervous System.

Aubagio side effects

The most common side effects caused by Aubagio include:

  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Thinning of hair
  • Abnormal liver function tests

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

  • Problems with your liver – jaundice (yellow color of skin or eyes), upper stomach pain, darker urine, and loss of appetite
  • Signs of infection – nausea, vomiting, fever, aching body, and feeling tired
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Cough, with or without a fever
  • Tingling feeling, or hands and feet feel numb (differing to normal MS symptoms)

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Aubagio against your risk of side effects.

Aubagio drug interactions

Aubagio can interact with an extensive list of medications. These include:

  • Medication used for the treatment of HIV/AIDS – abacavir, lamivudine, efavirenz, nevirapine, zidovudine
  • Medication used for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or Crohn’s disease – etanercept, infliximab, golimumab, ustekinumab
  • Treatments for cancer – abemaciclib, palbociclib, ribociclib
  • Antiretroviral medication used in combination with other medicines to treat HIV/AIDS – ritonavir, darunavir, tenofovir
  • Medication taken to reduce cholesterol levels – atorvastatin, rosuvastatin, simvastatin
  • ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitors, taken for high blood pressure – captopril, enalapril, fosinopril, ramipril
  • Steroid treatments – betamethasone, dexamethasone, prednisolone
  • Antibiotics used to treat infections – clarithromycin, rifampin, nitrofurantoin

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs interact with Aubagio.

Aubagio warning and precautions

You should not use Aubagio if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient teriflunomide or leflunomide
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Aubagio
  • Have severe liver disease
  • Are taking leflunomide
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant

Talk to your doctor before using Aubagio if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Aubagio
  • Have liver disease
  • Have kidney disease
  • Have high blood sugar (hyperglycemia)
  • Have high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Have uncontrolled infections or fever
  • Have difficulty breathing
  • Have tuberculosis
  • Have any nerve problems
  • Are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed

Teriflunomide can reduce blood cells that help you fight infections. This can make it easier for you to get sick. You may need blood tests every 6 months while taking Aubagio. Your blood pressure will also need to be checked regularly.

Aubagio may stay in your body for up to 2 years after you have stopped taking it. You may need to be treated with other medications to help your body eliminate teriflunomide quickly.

*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.
