Your monthly Gavreto cost savings if eligible

The Gavreto 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 Gavreto, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Gavreto patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Gavreto coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Gavreto if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Gavreto 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.

What is Gavreto?

Gavreto is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Blueprint Medicines Corporation and Genentech, Inc. It is classed as a kinase inhibitor for the treatment of adult patients with metastatic rearranged during transfection RET fusion-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), or advanced thyroid cancer, who require systemic therapy, as detected by an FDA-approval test.

This is approved under accelerated approval based on the overall response rate (ORR) and duration of response. Continued approval for this use may depend upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

What doses of Gavreto are available?

Gavreto is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 100 mg.

Patients are selected for treatment with Gavreto based on the presence of a RET gene fusion. The recommended dose in adults is 400 mg, orally once daily on an empty stomach. Food should not be consumed for at least 2 hours before and at least 1 hour after taking Gavreto.

Please see the full prescribing information and patient information for Gavreto, and always speak with your healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
