Am I eligible for the Ofev patient assistance program?

To be successfully enrolled in the Ofev patient assistance program, you must meet the eligibility criteria for Ofev assistance. Although the criteria will vary between programs, the main factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

We do everything we can to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Ofev patient assistance program. All you need to do is fill in our online enrollment application.

Applicants that are eligible for Ofev assistance will have the full enrollment process handled on their behalf by NiceRx. When you’re enrolled in the Ofev patient assistance program, we’ll also request your Ofev medication refills on your behalf for up to 12 months.

Is NiceRx an Ofev coupons provider?

NiceRx is not an Ofev coupon, an Ofev discount card, or an Ofev copay card provider. We don’t offer printable Ofev manufacturer coupons, Ofev discounts, rebates, Ofev savings cards, trial offers, or free Ofev samples. NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Ofev patient assistance program.

How much is Ofev with insurance?

If you have insurance, the cost of Ofev will depend on your healthcare plan. Get in touch with either your insurance provider or pharmacist to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Ofev cost without insurance?

Ofev prices without insurance are high. A pack of 60 Ofev tablets, at either 100 mg or 150 mg, will cost around $12,500.

What is Ofev?

Ofev is a medication prescribed to adults to treat:

  • A lung disease called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
  • A lung disease called systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD)
  • Long-lasting interstitial lung diseases in which lung fibrosis continues to get worse

These lung conditions can’t be permanently cured but can be managed with medications like Ofev. You take Ofev as a capsule you swallow. It helps to maintain your lung function, slow your decline in lung function, and reduces the risk of the complications of your disease. Ofev can help you live with your condition and improve your quality of life. 

Ofev active ingredients

The active ingredient in Ofev is called nintedanib. It’s a type of drug called a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Nintedanib works by blocking the action of a group of enzymes in your cells called tyrosine kinases. These enzymes start and stop various processes inside your body. When used for lung conditions, blocking tyrosine kinases slows down how much collagen your fibroblast cells produce and blocks the production of other substances that promotes collagen formation.

Ofev side effects & Ofev drug interactions

As with all medications, Ofev can have side effects, with the most common including:

  • Headaches
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Being sick (vomiting)

In rare instances, Ofev can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Liver problems that can reduce your liver function
  • An increased risk of serious bleeding problems
  • Tears (perforations) in your stomach or intestines
  • Serious diarrhea and vomiting

  • Any other medications taken to treat your lung condition

  • Any antibiotics taken to treat bacterial infections, such as erythromycin or rifampicin
  • Any medications that affect how your immune system works, including cyclosporine
