Your monthly Evotaz cost savings if eligible

The Evotaz 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 Evotaz, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Evotaz patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx an Evotaz coupon provider?

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

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

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Evotaz 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 does Evotaz cost without insurance?

Evotaz prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Evotaz oral tablet (300 mg-150 mg) typically costs $1,700 for 30 tablets.

How much does Evotaz cost with insurance?

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

What is Evotaz?

Evotaz is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb. It is a combination of atazanavir, a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) protease inhibitor, and cobicistat, a CYP3A inhibitor indicated for use in combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults and pediatric patients weighing at least 35 kg. Evotaz decreases the amount of HIV in your body so your immune system can function correctly. The use of Evotaz in treatment-experienced patients should be guided by the number of baseline primary protease inhibitor resistance substitutions.

What doses of Evotaz are available?

Evotaz is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 300 mg of atazanavir and 150 mg of cobicistat.

Always speak with your healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Evotaz active ingredients

Evotaz contains atazanavir and cobicistat as the active ingredients.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

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.

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
