Am I eligible for Calquence patient assistance?

We review each Calquence enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and 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 Calquence patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Calquence patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Calquence. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is NiceRx a Calquence coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Calquence coupon, Calquence discount card, or Calquence copay card provider.

What is Calquence?

Calquence contains the prescription medicine acalabrutinib. Acalabrutinib helps to stop the spread of cancer cells in the body by blocking specific enzymes and how they act. Calquence is used for the treatment of:

  • Mantle cell lymphoma in adults who have already been treated with another form of therapy. Mantle cell lymphoma occurs when B-cells, also known as B-lymphocytes, become abnormal and build up in lymph nodes
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma – both are cancers that affect B-cells and the normal function of the immune system

Calquence active ingredients

Acalabrutinib blocks the action of an enzyme known as Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK). It does this by attaching itself to the BTK. BTK normally attaches to the surface of the B-cells in the body. Doing this activates the growth, spread, and action of the B-cells in the body. Blocking the action of BTK has the effect of stopping B-cells from carrying out their normal activity.

Calquence is normally taken once every 12 hours until your body no longer responds to the medicine. Your doctor will decide the exact dose that you will take. You should not use this medicine in different doses than what is prescribed. You may need regular blood tests while taking this medicine.

Calquence side effects

The most common side effects caused by Calquence include:

  • Tiredness
  • Headache
