Your monthly Evrysdi cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Evrysdi patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Evrysdi through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Evrysdi patient assistance program?

You could receive your Evrysdi without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main factors considered by most programs 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 Evrysdi patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Evrysdi.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Evrysdi patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Evrysdi medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx an Evrysdi coupons provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Evrysdi patient assistance program. This means that we are not an Evrysdi coupon, an Evrysdi discount card, or an Evrysdi copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers or free Evrysdi samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Evrysdi if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Evrysdi medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Evrysdi?

Evrysdi is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Genentech, Inc.

Evrysdi is a survival of motor neuron 2 (SMN2) splicing modifier for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) in patients 2 months of age and older.

SMA is a severe, progressive neuromuscular disease that can be life-threatening. It affects one in 10,000 babies and is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality. It is caused by a mutation of the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. This leads to a lack of SMN protein, which is found throughout the body. SMN protein is vital to the function of nerves that control muscles and movement. A lack of protein leads to muscle weakness over time. Depending on the type of SMA, a person’s physical strength and their ability to walk, eat or breathe can be greatly reduced or lost.

Evrysdi is being evaluated in four clinical trials in people with SMA:

  • Firefish – an open-label, two-part pivotal clinical trial in infants with Type 1 SMA. The primary objective of Part 2 was to assess the proportion of infants able to sit without support after 12 months of treatment. The study met its primary endpoint
  • Sunfish – is a two-part, double-blind, placebo-controlled pivotal study in people aged 2-25 years with Types 2 or 3 SMA. Part 2 evaluated motor function using the total score of motor function measure 32 (MFM-32) at 12 months. MFM-32 is a scale used to evaluate fine and gross motor function in people with neurological disorders. The study met its primary endpoint
  • Jewelfish – an open-label trial to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics (PD) in people with SMA aged 6 months to 60 years, who received other investigational or approved SMA therapies for at least 90 days before receiving Evrysdi.
  • Rainbowfish – an open-label, single-arm, multicenter study, investigating the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of Evrysdi in babies from birth to six weeks of age, with genetically diagnosed SMA who are not yet showing symptoms

What doses of Evrysdi are available?

Evrysdi is available as an oral solution: 60 mg of risdiplam as a powder for the constitution to provide 0.75 mg/mL solution

You should receive Evrysdi as a liquid that can be given by mouth or through a feeding tube.

Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

*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.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

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.
