Your monthly Cellcept cost savings if eligible

The Cellcept patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Cellcept, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Cellcept patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Cellcept 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 Cellcept patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Cellcept 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 Cellcept.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Cellcept 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 Cellcept 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 Cellcept.

Is NiceRx a Cellcept coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Cellcept patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Cellcept 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 Cellcept coupons, discount cards, or Cellcept copay cards.

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

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Cellcept 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.

Cellcept prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Cellcept oral capsules of 250 mg typically cost $950 for 100 capsules.

How much does Cellcept cost with insurance?

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

What is Cellcept?

Cellcept is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Roche. CellCept suppresses your body’s natural immune system, preventing it from rejecting a transplanted organ. Organ rejection occurs when your immune system treats a new organ as a foreign invader and attacks it.

CellCept is indicated for the prevention of organ rejection in patients who are at least 3 months old and have received an organ transplant (such as a liver transplant, heart transplant, or kidney transplant). CellCept is used in combination with other immunosuppressant medicines containing cyclosporine and corticosteroids.

What doses of Cellcept are available?

Cellcept is available as:

  • Cellcept capsules: 250 mg
  • Cellcept tablets: 500 mg
  • Cellcept oral suspension: 20 g
  • Mycophenolate mofetil, powder for reconstitution for injection: 500 mg

Oral CellCept capsules are taken on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Swallow the capsule or tablet whole. Do not crush, chew, break, or open it. If you miss a dose take your missed dose as soon as you can, but skip the missed dose if your next dose is due in less than 2 hours.

Please read the medication guide provided and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program. Subject to medication availability.

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.
