Your monthly Lumakras cost savings if eligible

The Lumakras patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Lumakras, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Lumakras patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Lumakras 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 Lumakras patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Lumakras 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 Lumakras.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Lumakras 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 Lumakras 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 Lumakras.

Is NiceRx a Lumakras coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Lumakras patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Lumakras samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Lumakras coupons, discount cards, or Lumakras copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Lumakras if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Lumakras medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Lumakras cost with insurance?

What is Lumakras?

Lumakras is an FDA-approved (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) medication manufactured by Amgen Inc.

Lumakras is an inhibitor of the RAS GTPase family and is used for the treatment of adult patients with KRAS G12C-mutation locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), as determined by an FDA-approval test, who have received at least one prior systemic therapy. This use is approved under accelerated approval based on the overall response rate (ORR) and the duration of response (DOR).

Amgen has partnered with two companies: Guardant Health and Qiagen to develop blood and tissue-based companion diagnostics (CDx), for Lumakras. With these tests, patients and clinicians will have a greater ability for conducting KRAS G12C biomarker testing.

CodeBreaK 100, the Phase 1 and 2, first-in-human, open-label multicenter study, enrolled patients with KRAS G12C – mutant solid tumors. The primary endpoint for the Phase 2 study was a centrally assessed objective response rate. The Phase 2 trial in colorectal cancer (CRC) is fully enrolled and topline results are expected later in 2021.

What doses of Lumakras are available?

Lumakras is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 120 mg.

The recommended dosage is 960 mg orally once daily. Tablets should be swallowed whole with or without food.

Always speak with your healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition. Please also see the full prescribing information for Lumakras.

Lumakras contains the active ingredient sotorasib. It is an inhibitor of KRASG12C, a tumor-restricted, mutant-oncogenic form of the RAS GTPase, KRAS.

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

Lumakras drug interactions

Lumakras can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Strong CYP3A4 Inducers
  • CYP3A4 Substrates
  • P-gp substrates – avoid P-gp substrates for which minimal concentration changes may cause serious toxicities

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

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.
