Am I eligible for the Fasenra patient assistance program?

You could receive your Fasenra without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who 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 Fasenra 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 Fasenra.

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 Fasenra 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 Fasenra medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Fasenra coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Fasenra 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 Fasenra 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.

How much is Fasenra with insurance?

The cost of Fasenra will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Fasenra cost without insurance?

Fasenra costs without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, Fasenra will typically cost around $5,000 for 30 mg/ml of Fasenra solution. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx, you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price.

What is Fasenra?

Fasenra is a prescription maintenance medication used to manage the symptoms of asthma in adults and children 12 years and older. It is usually used alongside existing asthma medications when those medications are not effective enough to control your symptoms.

You take Fasenra by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection) using a pre-filled syringe. Your doctor, or another healthcare professional will show you or a caregiver how to do this. You typically have 1 injection a month for the first 3 months, then 1 injection every 8 weeks afterward. Your doctor will decide how much Fasenra you need and how often.

Fasenra active ingredients

The active ingredient in Fasenra is called benralizumab. It is a type of medicine called a monoclonal antibody that has been designed to target a substance in your body that triggers inflammation.

Your immune system produces a range of substances that trigger inflammation in your body. One of these substances, called interleukin, is released by your white blood cells. When Fasenra is injected, the benralizumab it contains targets interleukin released by your white blood cells. Benralizumab attaches to the interleukin, stopping it from working. This reduces how much inflammation you have in your lungs and airways, lessening feelings of tightness, wheezing, and coughing, and making it easier for you to breathe. The exact way in which benralizumab works against asthma is however not fully understood.

Fasenra side effects

The most common side effects caused by Fasenra include:

  • Headaches
  • A sore throat

In rarer instances, Fasenra can cause more serious side effects, such as severe allergic reactions that can trigger anaphylaxis. This can cause rashes and hives to break out on your skin and a fall in blood pressure, as well as swelling of your face, mouth, and throat that can make it difficult to breathe.

Fasenra Interactions

Currently, no formal drug interaction studies have been carried out for Fasenra, however it is advised to discuss all medication you are taking with your doctor before using Fasenra.

Fasenra warning and precautions

Fasenra should not be given to children under 12 years of age. Do not take Fasenra if you are allergic to the active ingredient benralizumab or any of the other ingredients in Fasenra.

Talk to your doctor before taking Fasenra if you:

  • Are taking any medications that contain steroids or corticosteroids
  • Have a parasitic infection
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*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.
