Am I eligible for Nubeqa patient assistance?

We review each Nubeqa enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and 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 Nubeqa patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Nubeqa patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Nubeqa, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is NiceRx a Nubeqa coupon provider?

NiceRx is not a Nubeqa coupon, Nubeqa discount card, or Nubeqa copay card provider. We do not offer Nubeqa manufacturer coupons, Nubeqa discounts, rebates, Nubeqa savings cards, trial offers, or free Nubeqa samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.

Can NiceRx help me get Nubeqa cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Nubeqa

What is Nubeqa?

Nubeqa is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bayer. FDA approval is based on the Phase III ARAMIS clinical studies evaluating Nubeqa plus androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), which demonstrated a highly significant improvement in the primary efficacy endpoint of metastasis-free survival (MFS). MFS was the primary endpoint, and overall survival (OS) was a key secondary endpoint.

Nubeqa is an androgen receptor inhibitor indicated for the treatment of patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC).

What doses of Nubeqa are available?

Nubeqa is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 300 mg.

The recommended dose of Nubeqa is 600 mg, (two 300 mg tablets) administered orally twice daily. Swallow the tablets whole with food. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at a regular time.

You should also receive a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analog concurrently or should have had bilateral orchiectomy.

Your doctor will order prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests for you. PSA tests can check how well Nubeqa is treating your prostate cancer.

Please read the full prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
