Your monthly Cyramza cost savings if eligible

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

Am I eligible for the Cyramza patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Cyramza coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Cyramza if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Cyramza 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 Cyramza with insurance?

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

How much does Cyramza cost without insurance?

Cyramza prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Cyramza intravenous solution (10 mg/mL)  typically costs $1300 for 10 milliliters.

What is Cyramza?

Cyramza contains the prescription medicine ramucirumab, it is used for the treatment of cancer. It is used for:

  • Gastric cancer – in combination with the medicine paclitaxel, or on its own for advanced cancer or cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic)
  • Non-small cell lung cancer – with the medicine erlotinib or docetaxel for certain types of metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
  • Colorectal cancer – in combination with Folfiri for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer)

Cyramza is usually given after other cancer medicines have been tried but not worked.

Cyramza active ingredients

Cyramza (ramucirumab) is a man-made antibody. It works in a similar way to the body’s immune system against bacteria and viruses. Ramucirumab stops the growth and spread of cancer cells, and has also been seen to stop the production of new blood vessels needed by the cancer cells for growth.

Cyramza is given as an infusion directly into a vein by a healthcare professional. Cyramza can be given once every 2 or 3 weeks depending on the treatment plan your doctor advises. You may need to have regular blood tests and blood pressure checks while taking Cyramza.

Cyramza can increase the risks of serious bleeding. You should stop using this medicine and call your doctor if you have severe stomach pain, bloody or tarry stools, coughing up blood, or any heavy or unusual bleeding.

The most common side effects caused by Cyramza include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diarrhea, loss of appetite

  • Mouth ulcers, red or swollen gums, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, change in sense of taste

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