Your monthly Empliciti cost savings if eligible

The Empliciti 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 Empliciti, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Empliciti patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx an Empliciti coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Empliciti if I have insurance?

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

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

How much does Empliciti cost without insurance?

Empliciti prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, the cost for Empliciti intravenous powder for injection 300 mg is around $2,000 for a supply of 1 powder for injection.

What is Empliciti?

Empliciti contains the prescription medicine elotuzumab. It is a type of anticancer drug used to treat multiple myeloma, which is a type of bone marrow cancer. Empliciti 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.

Empliciti is given as an infusion into a vein. Empliciti is usually given every 1 to 4 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 Empliciti and how many infusions you need will be decided upon by your prescribing doctor based on your condition and medical history.

Elotuzumab is given together with lenalidomide or pomalidomide, and dexamethasone. It is not known if Emplicit is safe and effective to use in children.

Empliciti  active ingredients

The active ingredient in Empliciti is called elotuzumab. 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.

SLAMF7 is what is known as a transmembrane glycoprotein. It is found on the surface of cancer cells in multiple myeloma. Elotuzumab binds to SLAMF7 specifically, blocking it from working. Elotuzumab also works by stopping the growth and killing tumor cells that produce SLAMF7.

Empliciti  side effects

The most common side effects caused by Empliciti include:

  • Cold symptoms – fever, cough, sore throat, sneezing, stuffy nose
  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Nerve problems – tingling, numbness, or pain

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

  • Painful skin rash
  • Loss of appetite
  • Yellowish skin or eyes
  • Cough with mucus
  • Pain when urinating

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Empliciti against your risk of side effects.

Empliciti can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Vaccines – BCG, influenza, measles, mumps, polio, rubella, rotavirus, smallpox, typhoid, varicella, yellow fever, zoster
  • Treatments for auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis – upadacitinib, tofacitinib, baricitinib
  • Antirheumatic drugs – leflunomide
