Your monthly Mounjaro cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Mounjaro patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee 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 Mounjaro through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Mounjaro patient assistance program?

You could receive your Mounjaro without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that 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 Mounjaro 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 Mounjaro.

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 Mounjaro 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 Mounjaro medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Mounjaro coupon provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Mounjaro cheaper 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 Mounjaro medication, or if 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.

What is Mounjaro?

Mounjaro is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Eli Lilly and Co. Mounjaro is classed as a GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonist. GIP decreases food intake and increases energy expenditure which causes weight loss. When taken with a GLP-1 receptor agonist, it may result in greater positive effects on blood glucose and body weight.

Mounjaro is used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is not for use in people with type 1 diabetes, pancreatitis, or to treat children under 18 years of age.

What doses of Mounjaro are available?

Mounjaro is available in injection form, in the following doses: 2.5 mg/0.5 mL, 5 mg/0.5 mL, 7.5 mg/0.5 mL, 10 mg/0.5 mL, 12.5 mg/0.5 mL, or 15 mg/0.5 mL single-dose pens.

Mounjaro is injected subcutaneously in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm once weekly, with or without food. If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as possible within 96 hours after the missed dose. If more than 4 days have passed, skip the missed dose and take your next dose on the regularly scheduled day.

Use Mounjaro alongside dietary changes and exercise to improve glycemic control and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Mounjaro active ingredients

FDA approval for Lilly’s Mounjaro was based on the SURPASS study, which compared Mounjaro with Ozempic, insulin glargine, semaglutide 1 mg, and insulin degludec. Participants who took Mounjaro experienced an average reduction in hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c (an indicator of blood sugar level). Participants who took a placebo saw an average increase in A1C levels.

Mounjaro side effects

The most common side effects of Mounjaro in clinical trials include:

  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Diarrhea, decreased appetite, constipation, indigestion, abdominal pain

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

  • Possible thyroid tumors, including thyroid cancer – do not use Mounjaro if you or any of your family have ever had a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), or if you have an endocrine system condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2)
  • Inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis) – symptoms include severe pain in your stomach area that will not go away, with or without vomiting
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) – Your risk for low blood sugar may be increased if you use Mounjaro with another diabetes medication such as a sulfonylurea or insulin
  • Serious allergic reactions
  • Kidney problems
  • Severe stomach problems
  • Changes in vision
  • Gallbladder problems

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