  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Doptelet patient assistance program?

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Doptelet 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.

Avatrombopag is an orally bioavailable, small molecule TPO receptor agonist. Its mechanism of action is to stimulate the growth and spread of megakaryocytes from bone marrow cells, resulting in an increase in platelets. Avatrombopag does not compete with TPO for binding to the TPO receptor and has an additive effect with TPO on platelet production.
