Am I eligible for Genotropin patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Genotropin patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Genotropin enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Genotropin patient assistance program?

Applying for the Genotropin patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Genotropin, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Genotropin assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Genotropin patient assistance program, we will also request your Genotropin medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Genotropin coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Genotropin coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Genotropin manufacturer coupons, Genotropin discounts, rebates, Genotropin savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Genotropin medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Genotropin if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you access Genotropin patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Genotropin
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Genotropin prescription

How much is Genotropin with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Genotropin with insurance. To find out what you will need to pay, contact your pharmacist or insurance provider. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Genotropin cost without insurance?

Genotropin prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, Genotropin subcutaneous powder for injection 0.2 mg will typically cost around $225 for 7 powders for injection.

What is Genotropin?

Genotropin contains the prescription medicine somatropin. Genotropin is used for the treatment of growth failure in adults and children who do not produce natural growth hormones. Genotropin is a human growth hormone needed for the normal growth of muscles and bones in the body.

Genotropin is used for:

  • Growth failure due to Turner syndrome
  • Growth failure due to Prader-Willi syndrome
  • Growth failure in children who are born small and do not show catch up growth by the age of 2 years
  • In adults who have a lack of growth hormone, either on its own or in combination with other hormone deficiencies due to surgery, radiation treatment, pituitary or hypothalamic disease, or trauma
  • Adults who lacked growth hormone in their childhood from birth, genetically, due to a disease or other unknown causes

Genotropin should not be used if you have cancer, diabetic retinopathy, or if you are being treated for Prader-Willi syndrome and you are overweight or have severe breathing difficulties. Genotropin should not be used if you have a serious illness due to lung failure or complications from recent surgery, injury, or medical trauma.

Genotropin active ingredients

In clinical tests, it has been shown that Genotropin has the same effect in normal adults as natural human growth hormone from the pituitary gland produced in the body. In children with growth hormone deficiency (GHD), Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS), small gestational age (SGA), Turner syndrome (TS), or have Idiopathic short stature (ISS), Genotropin has been shown to increase linear growth (musculoskeletal growth).

Genotropin also has the effect of reducing body fat mass, increasing lean body mass (an increase in both the number and size of muscle cells), and other beneficial metabolic changes in the body.

Genotropin side effects

The most common side effects caused by Genotropin include:

  • Pain, itching, or changes to skin where the medicine was injected
  • Swelling or rapid weight gain
  • Headaches or backpain
  • Stomach, muscle or joint pain
  • Cold or flu like symptoms

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

  • Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) – thirsty, dry mouth, increased urination
  • Severe headaches, nausea, dizziness, pain behind your eyes
  • Feeling very weak, weight loss, change in skin color
  • Pain in your knees or hips, walking with a limp
  • Feeling numb or tingling in your wrist, hand, or fingers
  • Changes in behavior or mood
  • Pancreatitis – nausea, vomiting, severe pain in upper stomach spreading to back

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Genotropin against your risk of side effects.

  • Treatment for skin cancer – bexarotene
