Your monthly Lucentis cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Lucentis patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Lucentis through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Lucentis patient assistance program?

You could receive your Lucentis without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx we review each 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 Lucentis patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Lucentis.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Lucentis patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Lucentis medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Lucentis coupons provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Lucentis patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Lucentis coupon, a Lucentis discount card, or a Lucentis copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers or free Lucentis samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Lucentis if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Lucentis medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

How much is Lucentis with insurance?

The cost of Lucentis will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much is Lucentis without insurance?

Lucentis costs without insurance will vary depending on the strength of the solution you buy (6 mg or 10 mg) and the retailer you buy the medication from. As a guide, Lucentis intravitreal solution will typically cost around $1,231 for a supply of 0.05 milliliters. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx, you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price.

What is Lucentis?

Lucentis (ranibizumab) injection is a prescription medicine used to treat the wet form of age-related macular degeneration. Lucentis is also used to treat swelling in the retina caused by diabetes or by a blockage in the blood vessels.

Lucentis active ingredients

The active ingredient in Lucentis is called ranibizumab. It is made from a human antibody fragment. It works by slowing the growth of new blood vessels under the retina and reducing leakage from these blood vessels.

  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Blurred vision
  • Eye pain or irritation

Occasionally Lucentis can cause more serious side effects, such as:

  • Allergic reactions to the medication can cause hives, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat that can make it difficult to breathe
  • Eye pain, redness, or swelling around the eye
  • Blurred vision, tunnel vision, seeing halos around lights, sensitivity to lights

  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

Your eyes will need to be checked regularly to make sure Lucentis is working for you and not causing any harmful side effects.

*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.
