Am I eligible for the Neupogen patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Neupogen patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however 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 Neupogen patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Neupogen patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Neupogen. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Neupogen assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Neupogen patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Neupogen medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Neupogen coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Neupogen patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Neupogen manufacturer coupons, Neupogen discounts, or free Neupogen samples. We are not a Neupogen coupon provider or Neupogen discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Neupogen if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Neupogen patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Neupogen medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much is Neupogen with insurance?

The cost of Neupogen with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Neupogen cost without insurance?

Neupogen prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and whether you buy pre-filled syringes or solution for injection. As a guide, Neupogen solution (300 mcg/0.5 ml) usually costs $360 for 0.5 milliliters. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

What is Neupogen?

Neupogen is a prescription medication that increases the number of neutrophil cells you have in your blood. These cells are a type of white blood cell produced by your immune system to help protect you from infections and some cancers.

Neupogen is prescribed to increase neutrophil levels in people who have a condition called neutropenia, caused by not having enough neutrophil cells in the blood. Your doctor may prescribe Neupogen to you if you have neutropenia caused by:

  • Chemotherapy or radiotherapy taken to treat cancer
  • A disorder that causes congenital neutropenia or cyclic neutropenia, such as Kostmann syndrome

Neupogen treats neutropenia by stimulating your bone marrow to produce more neutrophil white blood cells, increasing the levels of neutrophil in your blood.

The medication can be taken at home as an injection given under the skin (subcutaneous injection) using a pre-filled syringe, done by yourself or by a caregiver. Alternatively, it can be given in a clinical setting as an intravenous injection (IV injection) by a healthcare provider. How often you will need injections and how many you will need will be decided upon by your doctor based on your condition and medical history.

Neupogen active ingredients

The active ingredient in Neupogen is called filgrastim. Filgrastim is a granulocyte colony stimulating factor medicine that increases the number of neutrophil white blood cells your body produces.

When you take Neupogen, the filgrastim it contains is absorbed into your bone marrow where it triggers the processes that cause your bone marrow to produce neutrophil white blood cells.

Neupogen side effects

The most common side effects caused by Neupogen include:

  • Headaches
  • A cough
  • Nose bleeds
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Skin rashes
  • Shortness of breath
  • Hair loss

In rarer instances, Neupogen can cause more serious side effects, like:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can trigger anaphylaxis – a full body reaction that can cause swelling in the face, mouth, and throat that can make it difficult to breathe
  • An enlarged spleen that can rupture – this can be fatal in serious cases. Be aware of any sudden or severe pain in your left upper stomach spreading to your shoulder
  • A serious lung problem called acute respiratory distress syndrome
  • Kidney damage
  • Sickle cell crises if you have sickle cell disorder
  • Anemia (low red blood cells)
  • Infection – flu symptoms, fever, chills, sore throat, loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting

Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Neupogen against your risk of side effects.

Neupogen drug interactions

Medications can interact with each other. This can change how the medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you are taking, including vitamins, and herbal and dietary supplements, particularly:

  • Cladribine, taken to treat certain types of white blood cell cancer
  • Abemaciclib, ribociclib, palbociclib taken to treat certain types of breast cancer
  • Alemtuzumab, trastuzumab, obinutuzumab, taken to treat multiple sclerosis and cancer
  • Nilotinib, imatinib, dasatinib, taken to treat cancer

The list above is not exhaustive.

Neupogen warning and precautions

Neupogen is not suitable for everyone. Do not take Neupogen if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient filgrastim
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Neupogen
  • Have ever had an allergic reaction to another G-CSF medication, such as one that contains pegfilgrastim

Talk to your doctor before taking Neupogen if you:

  • Have any kidney problems
  • Have any blood cell disorders, such as sickle cell anemia
  • If you are having chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • Are allergic to latex (the needle cap on the prefilled syringe contains dry natural rubber derived from latex)
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*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.
