Your monthly Omnitrope cost savings if eligible

The Omnitrope patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 a month per medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Omnitrope, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Omnitrope patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Omnitrope assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Omnitrope patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Omnitrope patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Omnitrope.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Omnitrope assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Omnitrope patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Omnitrope.

Is NiceRx an Omnitrope coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Omnitrope patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Omnitrope samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Omnitrope coupons, discount cards, or Omnitrope copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Omnitrope if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Omnitrope medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much is Omnitrope with insurance?

The cost of Omnitrope will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Omnitrope with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Omnitrope cost without insurance?

Omnitrope prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Omnitrope solution (5 mg/1.5 mL) typically costs $660 for 1.5 milliliters.

What is Omnitrope?

Omnitrope contains the prescription medicine somatropin, a type of human growth hormone.

Omnitrope is used in children for the treatment of

  • Growth failure due to low levels of endogenous (occurring naturally in the body) growth hormone (GH).
  • Growth failure due to (PWS) Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).
  • Growth failure in children born small for gestational age (SGA), whose growth does not catch up by age 2 years.
  • Growth failure linked to Turner syndrome.
  • Idiopathic short stature (ISS), also called non-growth hormone-deficient short stature.

Omnitrope is used to replace endogenous growth hormone in adults with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) who:

  • Have growth hormone deficiency either on its own or with numerous hormone deficiencies (hypopituitarism), due to pituitary disease, hypothalamic disease, surgery, radiation treatment, or trauma.
  • Were growth hormone deficient during childhood due to congenital, genetic, aquired, or idiopathic causes.

Omnitrope active ingredients

Somatropin, as well as naturally occurring growth hormone in the body, attaches to the growth hormone receptor in the cell membrane of specific cells. This causes signals to be sent into the cell, and for there to be a range of physical and chemical changes.

The main type of growth seen is linear growth (growth in length). This is seen through tissue and bone growth. Treatment with somatropin also results in an increase in both the quantity and size of muscle cells, the size of internal organs, an increase in cell protein production, a reduction in body fat and LDL’s (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, and an increase in minerals such as potassium and phosphorous.

Omnitrope side effects

The most common side effects caused by Omnitrope include:

  • Swelling
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Headache
  • Skin reaction, pain, or itching at the injection site

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

  • Changes in behavior
  • Pain in knees or hips, difficulty walking
  • Ear pain or swelling
  • Swollen hands or feet
  • Changes in vision
  • Tingling or numbness in hands and wrist
  • Nausea, vomiting, pain in upper stomach spreading to back
  • Hyperglycemia (increased blood sugar) – thirsty, dry mouth, increased urination
  • Severe headaches, dizziness, ringing in your ears, pain behind your eyes
  • Weakness, weight loss, change in skin color

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Omnitrope against your risk of side effects.

*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.
