Your monthly Hemabate cost savings if eligible

The Hemabate 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 Hemabate, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Hemabate patient assistance program?

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

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

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

Is NiceRx a Hemabate coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Hemabate if I have insurance?

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

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

How much does Hemabate cost without insurance?

Hemabate prices without insurance will vary depending on the quantity you purchase. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Hemabate injectable solution (250 mcg/mL) typically costs $3,700 for 10 milliliters.

What is Hemabate?

Hemabate contains the prescription medicine carboprost tromethamine. Hemabate is a form of prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that are naturally present in the body.

Hemabate is used for:

  • Treatment of severe bleeding after childbirth (postpartum)
  • To cause an abortion by stimulating uterine contractions. Hemabate is usually given between the 13th and 20th weeks of pregnancy but can be given at other times for medical reasons.

Hemabate is often used when another method of abortion has not completely emptied the uterus, or when a complication of pregnancy would cause the baby to not survive early birth.

Hemabate active ingredients

Carboprost tromethamine is given intramuscularly (directly into the muscle). It stimulates contractions in the uterus similar to labor contractions at the end of a full-term pregnancy. It is not known if carboprost itself directly causes the contractions but in most cases, the uterus is evacuated.

Carboprost tromethamine also stimulates smooth muscle of the gastrointestinal tract. This may cause vomiting or diarrhea that is common when carboprost tromethamine is used to terminate a pregnancy and for use postpartum.

Hemabate side effects

The most common side effects caused by Hemabate include:

  • Mild menstrual-like cramps or pelvic pain
  • Mild nausea
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Chills or mild fever
  • Headaches
  • Feeling flushed
  • Cough or hiccups

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

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Severe pelvic pain, vaginal bleeding, or cramping
  • Severe nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
  • High fever
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Feeling light-headed or faint

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

Hemabate drug interactions

Hemabate may interact with other medicines known as oxytocic agents, which are also used for postpartum. Examples of these drugs are oxytocin, ergometrine maleate, or a combination of both. Using Hemabate with oxytocic agents is not recommended.

Hemabate warning and precautions

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient carboprost tromethamine
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Hemabate
  • Have active pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Have lung or breathing problems

  • Have problems with your blood pressure

  • Have asthma
  • Have any scarring on your uterus
  • 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.
