Am I eligible for Blincyto patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Blincyto patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Blincyto 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 Blincyto patient assistance program?

Applying for the Blincyto 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 Blincyto, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Blincyto 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 Blincyto patient assistance program, we will also request your Blincyto 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 Blincyto coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Blincyto coupons, discount cards, or copay cards. We do not offer printable Blincyto manufacturer coupons, Blincyto discounts, rebates, Blincyto 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 Blincyto medication with NiceRx.

What is Blincyto?

Blincyto contains the prescription medicine blinatumomab. It is used for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in adults and children. ALL is a type of blood cancer that starts from young white blood cells called lymphocytes in the bone marrow. It is more common to younger people.

Blincyto is given after other cancer treatments have been tried, but have not been successful. You may be given medication to prevent certain side effects while you are receiving Blincyto. Blincyto is given 24 hours a day through a catheter directly into a vein. A healthcare professional will give you this injection, with your first dose given in a hospital or clinic in case you have any serious side effects.

Blincyto active ingredients

Blinatumomab works by binding two types of cells within the body. These cells are known as B cells and T cells. This binding action of blinatumomab affects the T cell ultimately killing the excess B cells and destroying the tumor.

The pharmacy will prepare your injections and you will receive the medicine in IV bags. The IV bags should be kept in their original package unopened. The medicine should be stored in the refrigerator and protected from light. Each IV bag will be unpackaged and prepared by a healthcare professional. You must keep the skin clean around your catheter (IV) to reduce the risk of infection. You will need regular medical tests while using this medicine as Blincyto can increase your chances of getting an infection or risk of bleeding.

Blincyto side effects

The most common side effects caused by Blincyto include:

  • Reactions when the injection is given
  • Fever
  • Infections
  • Low blood cell count
  • Headache

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

  • Confusion, slurred speech
  • Seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Loss of balance
  • Difficulty breathing, body aches, vomiting, diarrhea, feeling light-headed
  • Severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea, increased heart rate
  • Leg cramps, constipation, irregular heartbeats, increased thirst or urination, numb or tingling, muscle weakness
  • Mouth sores, skin sores, easy bruising, unusual bleeding, pale skin

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