Your monthly Orilissa cost savings if eligible

The Orilissa 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 Orilissa, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Orilissa patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Orilissa 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 Orilissa patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Orilissa 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 Orilissa.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Orilissa 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 Orilissa 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 Orilissa.

Is NiceRx an Orilissa coupons provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Orilissa patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Orilissa 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 Orilissa coupons, discount cards or Orilissa copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Orilissa if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Orilissa 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 Orilissa with insurance?

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

How much does Orilissa cost without insurance?

Orilissa prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, 28 tablets of 150 mg or 200 mg Orilissa typically costs around $1,200.

What is Orilissa?

Orilissa is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe pain caused by endometriosis in adult women. Endometriosis is a condition that affects your womb (uterus) and is caused when your endometrium (the lining of tissue inside your womb) grows outside of your womb. This can spread to your fallopian tubes, your ovaries and the inside of your pelvis. It can cause a range of problems, including fertility issues. It is often painful, sometimes severely so.

Endometriosis is a complicated condition and it is not fully understood what causes it. Endometriosis may be triggered by menstrual periods that move upwards into your fallopian tubes (retrograde menstruation), or by an immune system disorder. Endometriosis may also be caused by injuries or surgery like a hysterectomy or C-section. If you have endometriosis your doctor may prescribe Orilissa to you to treat your pain, in addition to other treatments for your condition. Orilissa is a prescription medication that lowers how much estrogen your ovaries produce, lessening your endometriosis and the pain it can cause.

You take Orilissa as a tablet you swallow, typically twice a day with or without food. Your doctor will tell you how much Orilissa to take as well as how often and for how long, based on your condition.

Orilissa active ingredients

The active ingredient in Orilissa is called elagolix. It is a medicine that reduces the levels of estrogen released by your ovaries. When you take Orilissa the elagolix it contains is absorbed into your bloodstream and transported to your pituitary gland. Your pituitary is a gland found in your neck and regulates your other hormone releasing glands. When elagolix attaches to the outside of your pituitary gland, it causes the gland to signal to your ovaries to produce less estrogen. This can ease your endometriosis and lessen any pain you feel.

Orilissa side effects

The most common side effects caused by Orilissa include:

  • Headaches
  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Joint pain
  • Problems sleeping (insomnia)
  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • An absence of menstrual periods
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood changes

Occasionally Orilissa can cause more serious side effects. These are rare, but can include:

  • Changes in mood that can cause or worsen thoughts of suicide and suicidal behaviors
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • A loss of bone density (osteoporosis). This can make your bones more brittle and vulnerable to fractures and breaks
  • Liver problems that can decrease your liver function

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

Orilissa drug interactions

Orilissa can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Immunosuppressants such as cyclosporine or gemfibrozil taken to treat blood fat levels
  • Birth control pills
  • Any hormone treatments that alter your estrogen or progesterone levels

Orilissa warning and precautions

Orilissa can increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and suicidal behaviors. Seek urgent medical attention if you or someone you care for feels they are at risk of suicide.

Orilissa can increase the risk of pregnancy loss (miscarriage). Your doctor will give you a pregnancy test before you start taking Orilissa and will advise on an effective birth control method to use whilst taking it. Talk to your doctor right away if you think you are pregnant.

Do not take Orilissa if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient elagolix
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Orilissa
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Have severe liver problems
  • Have osteoporosis
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your doctor before taking Orilissa if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Orilissa
  • Have or have ever had depression, another mood disorder, suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • Have or have ever had a broken bone
  • Have any liver problems
  • 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.
