Am I eligible for Juluca patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Juluca patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Juluca 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 Juluca patient assistance program?

Applying for the Juluca 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 Juluca, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Juluca 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 Juluca patient assistance program, we will also automatically request your Juluca 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 Juluca coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Juluca coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Juluca manufacturer coupons, Juluca discounts, rebates, Juluca 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 Juluca medication with NiceRx.

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

How much is Juluca with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Juluca 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 Juluca cost without insurance?

Juluca prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, Juluca tablets (50 mg-25 mg) will typically cost around $3,100 for 30 tablets.

What is Juluca?

Juluca is a combination of the prescription medicines, dolutegravir and rilpivirine. These are classed as anti-viral medicines and help to stop the progression of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) in the body. HIV is the virus that can cause AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Juluca is used only after you have been treated with an alternative medication for at least 6 months and have been stable. It is important to understand however that Juluca is not a cure for HIV or AIDS. Also, it is not known if Juluca is safe to use in children.

Juluca should be taken as prescribed by your doctor. Dose changes should not be made without consulting your doctor first. You will be monitored closely whilst taking this medicine and will need regular blood checks.

Juluca active ingredients

Dolutegravir blocks the action of integrase by attaching itself to the site where integrase would normally act. Integrase is the viral enzyme that helps to integrate DNA from the virus into your DNA. Blocking the action of integrase helps to reduce the production of more viral DNA.

Rilpivirine is classed as a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI). This means it blocks the action of the enzyme transcriptase. Transcriptase normally helps the HIV-infected cells to make copies of the virus. By reducing the action of this enzyme, rilpivirine causes the HIV-infected cells to produce less HIV. Rilpivirine will not affect enzymes that act on normal human DNA.

Juluca side effects

The most common side effects caused by Juluca include:

  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea

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

  • Change in mood or behavior
  • Anxiety, thoughts of self-harm
  • Nausea, vomiting, darker urine, loss of appetite, yellow color to eyes or skin
  • Fever, swollen glands, cold sores, night sweats, coughing, wheezing
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Swollen neck
  • Changes in menstruation
  • Impotence

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