Your monthly Kerendia cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Kerendia patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Kerendia prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Kerendia patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Kerendia patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which are set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, the 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 the Kerendia patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Kerendia patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Kerendia. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Kerendia assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Kerendia patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Kerendia medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Kerendia coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Kerendia patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Kerendia manufacturer coupons, Kerendia discounts, or free Kerendia samples. We are not a Kerendia coupon provider or Kerendia discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Kerendia if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Kerendia patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Kerendia medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much does Kerendia cost without insurance?

Kerendia’s cost without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it. As a guide, Kerendia oral tablets usually cost $600 for 30 tablets. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

How much does Kerendia cost with insurance?

The copay for Kerendia with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

What is Kerendia?

Kerendia is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Kerendia is a non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist (MRA) indicated to reduce the risk of sustained eGFR decline, end-stage kidney failure, cardiovascular death, heart attack, non-fatal myocardial infarction, and hospitalization for heart failure in adult patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) associated with type 2 diabetes.

What doses of Kerendia are available?

Kerendia is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 10 mg and 20 mg.

The recommended starting dose is 10 mg or 20 mg once daily based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and serum potassium thresholds. Increase the dose after 4 weeks to the target dose of 20 mg once daily, based on eGFR and serum potassium thresholds.

Please see the prescribing information including the patient information for Kerendia and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Kerendia active ingredients

Kerendia contains the active ingredient finerenone.

Kerendia side effects

The most common side effects of Kerendia in clinical trials compared to placebo include:

  • Hypotension (low blood pressure)
  • Hyponatremia

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

  • Hyperkalemia – patients with decreased kidney function and higher baseline potassium levels are at increased risk, monitor serum potassium levels, and adjust the dose as needed

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Kerendia against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Kerendia to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Kerendia drug interactions

Kerendia can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Strong CYP3A4 inhibitors – concomitant use is contraindicated
  • Grapefruit or grapefruit Juice
  • Moderate or weak CYP3A4 inhibitors
  • Strong or moderate CYP3A4 Inducers
  • Consult with a physician before using potassium supplements or salt substitutes containing potassium

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Kerendia.

Kerendia contraindications

You should not use Kerendia if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient finerenone
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Kerendia
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

Talk to your doctor before using Kerendia if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Kerendia
  • Have adrenal insufficiency
  • Have renal impairment

Kerendia generic

Kerendia is the trademark brand name for finerenone manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Inc. A generic version of finerenone is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Kerendia savings through NiceRx.

*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.
