Am I eligible for Avastin patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Avastin patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Avastin enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Avastin patient assistance program?

Applying for the Avastin patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Avastin, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed. 

If we determine that you may be eligible for Avastin assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Avastin patient assistance program, we will also request your Avastin medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Avastin coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Avastin coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Avastin manufacturer coupons, Avastin discounts, rebates, Avastin savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Avastin medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Avastin if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you access Avastin patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Avastin
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Avastin prescription

How much is Avastin with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Avastin with insurance. To find out what you will need to pay, contact your pharmacist or insurance provider. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Avastin cost without insurance?

Avastin prices without insurance will depend on the size of the vials you buy (4 ml or 16 ml) and will vary by retailer. As a guide, a pack of 88, 4 ml vials of Avastin (approximately one month’s supply, depending on your prescribed dose) will typically cost around $21,000.

What is Avastin?

Avastin is a cancer medication that’s prescribed to adults to treat a range of cancers, including:

  • Metastatic colorectal cancer
  • Non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer
  • Recurrent glioblastoma
  • Metastatic renal cell carcinoma
  • Epithelial ovarian cancer
  • Fallopian tube cancer
  • Primary peritoneal cancer
  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

If you have a form of cancer that can be treated with Avastin, your doctor may have prescribed it to you. Avastin is a cancer medication that stops tumors creating their own blood supply, starving them of blood, oxygen, and nutrients. This makes it difficult for the tumor to continue growing and makes the tumor easier to kill with other cancer treatments, like chemotherapy.

Avastin is often prescribed alongside other cancer treatments, most often chemotherapy. The medication is given to you by intravenous infusion directly into a vein, usually at the same time as chemotherapy medications are administered by intravenous infusion. The amount of Avastin you require, how often you’ll need to take it, and what other treatments you’ll need will be decided upon by the prescribing doctor based on your cancer and your medical history. 

Avastin active ingredients

The active ingredient in Avastin is called bevacizumab. It’s a type of medication called a monoclonal antibody. This is a cancer-fighting protein designed to target and starve cancerous tumors of blood. When Avastin is given to you, the bevacizumab it contains is absorbed into the cancerous cells that make up your tumor(s). It then blocks a protein inside your cancerous cells called vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A).

VEGF-A is used by cancerous cells to create new blood vessels. This helps cancerous tumors create their own blood supply, which they need to receive the blood, and the oxygen and nutrients it contains, for the tumor to survive and grow. However, by blocking VEGF-A, bevacizumab stops your tumors(s) creating their own blood supply, starving them of blood, oxygen, and nutrients. This makes it harder for the tumors to grow and makes them easier to kill with other cancer treatments, like chemotherapy. 

Avastin side effects

The most common side effects caused by Avastin include:

  • Headaches

  • Nosebleeds
  • Back pain
  • Changes in taste
  • An increased risk of bleeding
  • Inflammation of the nose
  • Inflammation of the skin

In rare instances, Avastin can cause more serious side effects, like:

  • An increased risk of blood clots that can cause heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary embolism
  • Gastrointestinal tract perforations, tears and holes in your digestive tract that can cause pain, vomiting, constipation, and fever
  • Kidney problems that can reduce kidney function and that can cause fatal kidney failure in severe cases
  • The development of abnormal holes and passaged inside your body called fistula, that can be fatal in severe cases
  • Severe high blood pressure
  • Impaired healing of wounds and surgical procedures 
  • An increased risk of serious bleeding, including internal bleeding 
  • Eye problems, including loss of vision

Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Avastin against your risk of side effects.

Avastin drug interactions

Sometimes, medications can interact with each other. When this occurs, it can change how the medications work. Some side effects can also become more likely. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins, and herbal and dietary supplements.
