Am I eligible for Lexiscan patient assistance?

We review each Lexiscan enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and 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 Lexiscan patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Lexiscan patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Lexiscan. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

How much is Lexiscan with insurance?

The cost of Lexiscan with insurance will depend on the terms of your healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Contact them to find out more.

How much does Lexiscan cost without insurance?

Lexiscan prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Lexiscan intravenous solution will cost around $260 for 5 milliliters of 0.4 mg/5 ml

What is Lexiscan?

Lexiscan (regadenoson) is a prescription medicine known as a stress agent. It works by increasing the blood flow into the arteries of the heart. Lexiscan is given before a radionuclide scan (imaging of the inside of the body) where patients are not able to reach the target cardiac hyperemia (blood flow) by exercise alone.

Lexiscan is given directly into a vein as an intravenous (IV) infusion. Other intravenous medications may be given at the same time so that your blood vessels can be seen more clearly during your examination. You will be monitored closely by a healthcare provider.

Lexiscan active ingredient

Regadenoson works by acting on specific points on cells in your body. These points are known as adenosine receptors. By acting on the A2A adenosine receptor, Lexiscan causes the blood vessels such as the arteries to relax and become wider. This has the effect of allowing blood to flow more easily through your body.

Lexiscan side effects

The most common side effects caused by Lexiscan include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling flushed – a warm tingly feeling

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

  • High blood pressure – headaches and pounding in your ears
  • Low blood pressure – feeling light-headed and faint
  • Symptoms of a stroke – feeling numb or weak, especially down one side of your body, slurred speech, coordination problems
  • Chest pain spreading to your neck and jaw
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty breathing – wheezing, tight chest, shallow breathing
  • Increased heart rate

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

Lexiscan drug interactions

Lexiscan can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Bronchodilators such as aminophylline
  • Dipyridamole, used to stop blood clotting and to keep heart blood vessels open
  • Xanthines such as theophylline and dyphylline used for asthma and COPD

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

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.
