Your monthly Inlyta cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Inlyta patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Inlyta through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Inlyta patient assistance program?

You could receive your Inlyta 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 Inlyta 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 Inlyta.

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

Is NiceRx an Inlyta coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Inlyta 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 Inlyta 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 Inlyta with insurance?

The cost of Inlyta 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 Inlyta cost without insurance?

Inlyta costs without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy and the retailer you buy it from. As a guide, Inlyta oral tablet 1 mg will typically cost around $17,400 for 180 tablets. 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 Inlyta?

Inlyta contains the prescription medicine axitinib. It is used for the treatment of kidney cancer (advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC)) that can not be removed with surgery or has spread to other parts of the body. Inlyta is used in combination with other medicines or on its own when other medicines have not worked.

Inlyta is taken once every 12 hours, at evenly spaced intervals. You will have regular kidney, thyroid, liver function tests, and have your blood pressure taken regularly while taking this medication to make sure there are no harmful side effects.

It is not known if Inlyta is safe for use in children.

Inlyta active ingredients

Axitinib is known to block certain receptors in the body known as tyrosine kinase receptors. These receptors are known to be involved in the growth and spread of cancer within the body. Axitinib has been shown to stop the growth and spread of cancer.
