Am I eligible for the Kineret patient assistance program?

The Kineret patient assistance program has specific eligibility criteria for applicants. At NiceRx, we review each Kineret assistance program 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 the Kineret patient assistance program? 

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Kineret patient assistance program. To be considered for the program you will need to complete your enrollment application with NiceRx which you can fill out online.

At this stage, you will need to provide accurate information about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. In order to assess your eligibility, we will also need to know about any medications you’re taking, including Kineret. 

Once we determine that you may be eligible for Kineret assistance, we’ll handle the full application process for you. We will also request your Kineret medication refills on your behalf for up to one year, once you are enrolled in the patient assistance program.

Is NiceRx a Kineret coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Kineret patient assistance program. We don’t offer printable Kineret manufacturer coupons, Kineret discounts, rebates, Kineret savings cards, trial offers, or free Kineret samples.

If you’re looking for coupons for Kineret or cheap Kineret, keep in mind you can likely save more with NiceRx. When obtaining your Kineret medication through NiceRx, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month. This is likely to be a more cost-effective ongoing option than Kineret coupons, Kineret discount cards, or Kineret copay cards. 

Can NiceRx help me get Kineret if I have insurance? 

We may be able to help you get your Kineret medication in a variety of circumstances, including:

  • If your insurance company won’t pay for your Kineret medication 
  • If you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility 
  • If you don’t have insurance 
  • If your Medicare plan doesn’t cover Kineret 

Apply online to find out how we may be able to assist. 

How much is Kineret with insurance?

The cost of Kineret with insurance will vary according to the details of your healthcare plan. To find out exactly what you will need to pay, contact your insurance provider or pharmacist. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Kineret cost without insurance?

Kineret prices without insurance will vary depending on the amount you buy, and the retailer where you buy it from. As a guide, one syringe of 19.76 ml, 100 mg/0.67 ml Kineret solution will likely cost over $4,500.

With NiceRx you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Kineret?

Kineret is a prescription medication used to treat:

  • Moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis in adults. Particularly adults for whom a treatment called disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) haven’t worked
  • Neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID) in adults and children

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that mostly affects your joints, most often in your fingers and wrists. It’s caused by your immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissues in your body, causing inflammation.

Neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID) is a rare condition that usually starts at birth, or shortly after. Like rheumatoid arthritis, NOMID is triggered by your immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissues in your body and causing inflammation. Unlike rheumatoid arthritis, the inflammation is more widespread, and it can affect multiple parts of your body. 

Neither rheumatoid arthritis nor NOMID can be cured, but they can be managed using medication, like Kineret. Kineret is the only FDA approved treatment for NOMID. It can reduce the inflammation caused by both conditions. This can help to lessen your symptoms and reduce the damage your condition can cause.

Kineret active ingredients

The active ingredient in Kineret is called anakinra. It’s a modified version of a natural protein found in your body called an interleukin 1 receptor antagonist. This helps to reduce inflammation in your body.

Your immune system triggers inflammation by releasing a substance called a cytokine. Cytokines attach themselves to areas on the surface of your cells called interleukin-1 receptors. These receptors trigger the process inside your cells that causes inflammation.  

Anakinra works by stopping this. It attaches itself to the interleukin-1 receptors, stopping the cytokines attaching to them. This stops the process from starting that causes inflammation.

Kineret side effects & Kineret drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Kineret include:

  • Reactions at the site of injection, like redness, swelling, bruising, itching, and stinging
  • Headaches
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Being sick (vomiting)
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint pain
  • Fever
  • Sinus infections
  • A sore throat
  • A runny nose
  • Feeling like you have the flu
  • Stomach pain

Kineret can cause more serious side effects, although these are rarer. They include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Serious infections – Kineret can reduce your immune system’s ability to fight infection and make it more likely you’ll contract serious infections

Kineret can interact with other medications, including: 

  • Any other medications for rheumatoid arthritis
  • Any other medications that affect your immune system, particularly TNF blockers like Remicade (infliximab), Enbrel (etanercept), Humira (adalimumab), Cimzia (certolizumab pegol), or Simponi (golimumab)

Tell your prescribing physician if you are taking any of these medications as when taken alongside Kineret, they can impact its effectiveness. This could even cause more serious side effects to occur. 

Kineret warnings & precautions

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient anakinra
  • Are allergic to proteins made from the bacteria E. coli 
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Kineret

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.
