Your monthly Darzalex cost savings if eligible

The Darzalex 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 Darzalex, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Darzalex patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Darzalex coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Darzalex if I have insurance?

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

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

How much does Darzalex cost without insurance?

Darzalex prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it. As a guide, Darzalex intravenous solution (20 mg/ml) typically costs $617 for 5 milliliters.

What Is Darzalex?

Darzalex (daratumumab) is a prescription medicine used to treat multiple myeloma, a type of bone marrow cancer. Darzalex is used in combination with other medications for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. It can also be used on its own where patients have previously taken other medication that no longer works for them.

You take Darzalex as an infusion into a vein. Darzalex is usually given every 1 to 3 weeks during the first weeks of treatment. It is then given once every 4 weeks until your body no longer responds to the medicine. The dose of Darzalex and how many infusions you need will be decided upon by your prescribing doctor based on your condition and medical history.

It is not known if Darzalex is safe and effective in children.

Darzalex active ingredients

The active ingredient in Darzalex is called daratumumab. It is a type of monoclonal antibody that blocks a specific protein in the body that can affect tumor cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies are designed to only target and destroy certain cells in the body. This helps to protect healthy cells from harm.

CD38 is what is known as a transmembrane glycoprotein. It is found on the surface of cells in multiple myeloma. Daratumumab binds to CD38 specifically, blocking it from working. Daratumumab also works by stopping the growth and killing tumor cells that produce CD38.
