Am I eligible for the Kimmtrak patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Kimmtrak 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 Kimmtrak patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Kimmtrak 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 Kimmtrak.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Kimmtrak 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 Kimmtrak 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 Kimmtrak.

What is Kimmtrak?
Kimmtrak is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Immunocore. FDA approval of Kimmtrak is based on the results of a phase 3 clinical trial in which Kimmtrak showed statistically and clinically meaningful overall survival benefits for patients.
The study of adult patients with advanced uveal melanoma investigated Kimmtrak and compared it with other medicines (either dacarbazine, ipilimumab or pembrolizumab). Results showed that patients given Kimmtrak survived longer than patients given an alternative medicine and lived on average 3.3 months before their cancer came back, a new melanoma occurred or they died, compared with 2.9 months for patients treated with alternative medicines.
Kimmtrak is classed as a bispecific gp100 peptide-HLA-directed CD3 T cell engager and is indicated for the treatment of HLA-A*02:01-positive adult patients with unresectable or metastatic uveal melanoma.
What doses of Kimmtrak are available?
Kimmtrak is available in injection form, in the following doses: 100 mcg/0.5 mL solution in a single-dose vial.
The recommended dose is 20 mcg intravenously on Day 1, 30 mcg intravenously on Day 8, 68 mcg intravenously on Day 15, and 68 mcg intravenously once every week thereafter. The intravenous infusion is given over 15-20 minutes. Patients are treated until unacceptable toxicity or disease progression occurs.
Please see the full prescribing information, including the boxed warning and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
