Your monthly Gammagard cost savings if eligible

The Gammagard 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 Gammagard, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Gammagard patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Gammagard coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Gammagard if I have insurance?

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

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

How much does Gammagard cost without insurance?

Gammagard prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Gammagard Liquid injectable solution 10% typically costs $165 for 10 milliliters.

What is Gammagard?

Gammagard contains the prescription medicine immune globulin, it is used for the treatment of:

  • Primary immunodeficient states such as congenital agammaglobulinemia, common variable immunodeficiency, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, and severe combined immunodeficiencies
  • Bacterial infections in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia and/or recurrent bacterial infections linked to B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)

  • Prevention of coronary artery aneurysms linked to Kawasaki syndrome

Gammagard active ingredients

Gammagard contains IgG antibodies which work against a wide variety of bacteria and viruses. The antibodies enable the bacteria or virus to be destroyed by your natural defenses. How long the IgG works in the body varies greatly from person to person.

Gammagard can cause blood clots in certain patient groups. The chance of this happening is higher in older patients, patients who get blood clots, have blood circulation problems, or have heart problems. People taking hormone replacement therapy or birth control pills or having long-term bed rest are also more likely to suffer from blood clots.

Gammagard can also be harmful to your kidneys. Contact your doctor if you have chest pain, difficulty breathing, an increased heart rate, swelling in an arm or leg, rapid weight gain, or a reduction in urination.

  • Difficulty swallowing, blisters in your mouth, swollen gums
  • Sore throat, cough, runny or blocked nose, fever
  • Redness, swelling, or itching where the injection was given
  • Rash, redness, or bruising

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

  • Pale or yellowy skin, dark colored urine
  • Feeling thirsty or hot, unable to urinate, sweating, or hot and dry skin
  • Kidney problems – little or no urination, swelling, rapid weight gain, feeling short of breath
  • Chest pain, difficulty breathing, blue colored lips, fingers, or toes
