Am I eligible for the Movantik patient assistance program?

If you meet the eligibility criteria for Movantik assistance, we may be able to enroll you in the patient assistance program. At NiceRx, we review each application individually. It’s important to note the main factors considered by most programs include:

  • 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 Movantik patient assistance program? 

We do all that we can to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Movantik patient assistance program. Start by filling out the enrollment application form on our website. It is simple to complete, although we will need some essential information at this stage. This includes full details of all medication you’re taking, including Movantik. We also require details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. As this information is needed by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication, it is important to make sure it is accurate and up to date.

Once NiceRx determines that you may be eligible for Movantik assistance, we’ll handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are successfully enrolled in the Movantik patient assistance program, we’ll also request your refills for up to one year.

Is NiceRx a Movantik coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Movantik patient assistance program. We are not a Movantik coupon, a Movantik discount card, or a Movantik copay card provider. 

Remember that if you are successfully enrolled in the Movantik patient assistance program, the full cost of your medication will be $49 per month. This is likely to be a more affordable ongoing solution for your prescription than printable Movantik manufacturer coupons, Movantik discounts, rebates, Movantik savings cards, trial offers, or free Movantik samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Movantik if I have insurance? 

We may be able to assist you if you have insurance, but your insurance company won’t pay for your Movantik medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility or no insurance coverage. Apply online to find out more.

How much is Movantik with insurance?

The exact cost of Movantik with insurance will depend on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you may need to pay and to calculate your copay with your current insurance, contact your insurance provider or pharmacist. 

How much does Movantik cost without insurance?

Movantik prices without insurance will vary depending on the quantity you buy and the retailer. For example, a pack of 30, 25 mg Movantik tablets will cost around $690. Please note this is simply a guide price. 

What is Movantik?

Movantik is a medication prescribed to adults who have constipation caused by taking opioid painkillers. It’s formulated specifically for adults who take opioids for chronic non-cancer pain.

If your doctor prescribes you an opioid medication, they may also prescribe Movantik at the same time. The medication is designed to stop opioids affecting your bowels and giving you constipation. You take Movantik as a tablet with water.

Movantik active ingredients

The active ingredient in Movantik is called naloxegol. It helps to relieve opioid-induced constipation.

Opioid medications cause constipation by attaching to the surface of cells in your bowels at locations called mu-receptors. This stimulates the mu-receptors, causing reactions in your bowel cells that remove fluid and slow the passage of waste through your bowels. This hardens your stools and makes it harder for your body to expel them.

Movantik helps to counter this. When you take Movantik, the active ingredient naloxegol binds with the mu-receptors instead of the opioids. This blocks the mu-receptors and stops the opioids from stimulating them and affecting your bowels.

Movantik side effects & Movantik drug interactions

If you experience any side effects when taking Movantik, the most common will include:

  • Headaches
  • Stomach pain
  • Gas
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Being sick (vomiting)
  • Diarrhea

Unfortunately, you may also experience more severe side effects when taking Movantik. These can include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Opioid withdrawal symptoms, including sweating, chills, stomach pain, diarrhea, irritability, and anxiety
  • Severe stomach pain and/or diarrhea
  • Perforations in the wall of your stomach or intestines

If you are currently taking any other medications, it’s important to tell your prescribing physician. These could interact with Movantik which may reduce its effectiveness and make certain side effects more likely. 

Movantik warnings & precautions

You should not take Movantik if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient naloxegol
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Movantik 
  • Have, or have ever had, a blockage in your bowels (intestinal obstruction)

Talk to your doctor before taking Movantik if you:

  • Regularly take laxatives
  • Have any stomach or bowel problems, like diverticulitis, colitis, or cancer 
  • Have recently had surgery on your stomach or bowels
  • Have any kidney problems
  • Have any liver problems
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

You should also avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice when you take Movantik.

*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.
